Test 2

Wednesday 26 April at 09:00 in the usual lecture venue. Based on Chapter 3, sample at back of Chapter 3.

Catch-up

You will each have a catch up class in Week 11 (after the Easter break). Details to follow in time. We will be covering something that will be on an exam paper so attendance is vital.

Week 8

We looked at Implicit Differentiation and Partial Differentiation.

Week 9

We will finish looking at Partial Differentiation and see how it can be used in error analysis.
