Assignment

The assignment will be due in your tutorials in week 10 (Tuesday 6 October). It will be posted here by Tuesday 22 September (two weeks before the due date).

Quizzes

  • Quiz 1 will be held in tutorials in week 6 (Tuesday 1 September). It will draw on material from the lectures in Weeks 1-4. Questions may be similar to questions on the exercise sheets related to this lecture material. Study advice: first revise the lecture notes and chapters in the course notes and do related exercises (either alone or in a study group). Then attempt the sample quiz. If you cannot solve a question, have another go at revision and discuss with other students before you look at the solutions. A sample for Quiz 1 is now available and so are its solutions (now with correct answer to question 4).
  • Quiz 2 will be held in tutorials in week 11 (Tuesday 13 October). A sample quiz will be posted by Friday 2 October.

Lecture notes for Weeks 1-6

We will be using the MATH1903 Course notes, available from KOPYSTOP. Below are scans of (rough) lecture notes by Anne Thomas for the first six weeks and the last lecture in Week 13. These are less formal than the Course notes. They should become available shortly after the lectures listed.

Exercise Sheets and Solutions

Tutorial sheets may be viewed and downloaded from the following links. These form the basis for preparatory work and subsequent activities in tutorials that week. Solutions should be made available the day after the tutorials.

Final exam

Information about the final exam as well as solutions to past years' exams will be posted here towards the end of semester.
