Test 2

Test 2 will take place this on Monday 24 November in B263. Ye have a sample in your notes but note that partial fractions will not be in this test.

Week 10

In Week 10 we looked at antiderivatives that require a partial fraction expansion. Then we look at the applications of integration to area.

Week 11

After Monday’s test, we will look at how we can find volumes of solids of revolution using integration. Then we will look at how to find the work done by a variable work and find the mean value of a variable output.

Tutorials

The tutorial split is

ON EVEN WEEKS (e.g. Week 4 is even)
 
 - Group A’s tutorial is Monday at 17:00 in B189
 - Group B’s tutorial is Friday at 09:00 in B185
 
ON ODD WEEKS (e.g. Week 3 is odd)
 - Group A’s tutorial is Friday at 09:00 in B145

Assignment 2

…will hopefully be corrected relatively quickly. I won’t make any promises though.

Week 10

We made a start on the last chapter: Probability & Statistics. In particular we looked at the Binomial and Poisson Distributions.

Week 11

We will look at the normal distribution and begin looking at sampling theory.

Sample Exam

I will draft a sample exam and we will probably go through it in Week 13. I hope to get it done by the end of next week and I recommend that you try it before Week 13 comes along.

Assessment 4

Assessment 4 is on Wednesday 26 November in the Melbourne Building at 6.15 pm. Keep an eye on your CIT Blackboard and email for the latest and definitive assessment information.

P.21 of the mathematical tables will be put on the exam paper. As a result the paper will be harder than the sample with ten MCQ and three longer questions.

Good practise for the longer, harder questions, is P.144, Q. 1-3, 7 and especially P.171 Q.8.

Week 10

In Week 10 we looked at the properties of the logarithm function in detail. We explained why only the bases e and ten are given special buttons on your calculator and we solved some exponential and logarithmic equations. We started talking about exponential graphs (an Assessment 5 topic) and started talking about the duality between algebra and geometry.

Week 11

In Week 11 we will speak briefly about how graphs are useful in science. The rest of the lectures will be spent covering coordinate geometry of the line.

You will need graph paper for your Week 12 lectures and tutorials.

Test 2

Test 2 will take place in Week 11 on Monday 24 November in B263. Ye have a sample in your notes.

Week 9

In Week 9 we did some more antiderivatives that require a substitution but also we will evaluate some (definite) integrals that require a substitution.

Week 10

In Week 10 we will look at antiderivatives that require a partial fraction expansion. Then we look at the applications of integration to area & volume.

‘Skipped Material’

I sent ye the partial derivatives examples that I didn’t finish off.

Later on I will send ye on a completed Figure 3.22.

The differentials examples that I didn’t do are not examinable.

The rounding error examples, which are not examinable, may be found here.

Assignment 2

Has been sent to you. Please read the emails carefully — especially those regarding the various typos. The hand-up date is this Friday 21 November.

Week 9

We finished off the section on the numerical solution of differential equations that we need for the second assignment by going through the Three Term Taylor Method. Then we got into the applications of partial differentiation to multivariable Taylor Series (f(x,y)\approx \sum \alpha_{ij}x^iy^j) and error analysis.

Week 10

We will make a start on the last chapter: Probability & Statistics.

Sample Exam

To guard against complacency I will draft a sample exam that we will sit on Friday 28 November in Week 11 or Friday 5 December in Week 12. This will be a tough paper that will give ye an indication of where ye are sitting before the final stages of study.

If we sit it in Week 11 it will contain less statistics but will be corrected by me and we will do the Autumn 2014 paper in Week 13. If we can’t sit it until Week 12 we will go through it in Week 13.

Week 9

In Week 9 we looked at scientific notation, the conversion of units and we also defined the logarithm.

Week 10

In Week 10 we will look at the properties of the logarithm function. We will explain why only the bases e and ten are given special buttons on your calculator and solve some exponential and logarithmic equations. We might start talking about exponential graphs if ye are lucky!
