Test 2

Test 2 is booked for the Tuesday of Week 11:

29/11/202218.00-19.00MATH6040Technological Maths 20155A – C

See Canvas —> MATH6055 —> Assignments, for more information, including sample tests (although note all those questions can be found in the Chapter 3 exerices).

Week 10

We finished looking at applications of partial differentiation to error analysis. Then we looked at parametric differentiation.

The tutorials were again be focused on Chapter 3. We got some tutorial time on Chapter 4 in lectures.

Week 11

We will finish Chapter 4 by looking at Related Rates and Implicit Differentiation.

The tutorials will be focused on Chapter 4.

Week 12

We will have finished the manual and so will look at the Winter 2021 paper for revision. It is in the back of the manual.

Students will receive one-to-one help in tutorial, but it will be up to students to decide what they want to look at; be it Vectors, Matrices, or Further Differentiation.

Tutorials

The most important thing in your MATH6040 world is to attend tutorials regularly. See here for more, including times and venues.

Assignment 2

Assignment 2 based on Chapter 2 is on Canvas now: Canvas —> MATH7019 —> Assignments. It is now due on the Monday of Week 10, 28 November.

Week 10

We finished our look at sampling and then looked at hypothesis testing.

We had our tutorial on Tuesday. Many students continued working on Chapter 2, but some started looking at the normal distribution.

Week 11

We will finish our look at at hypothesis testing. Then we will drive into Chapter 4. The second part of Chapter 4 is second year material.

Our tutorial will be focused on Chapter 3.

Week 12

We will do our best to finish Chapter 4 early in the week so that we can have some revision.

The tutorial will probably also be focused on Chapter 3.

Academic Learning Centre

I would urge anyone having any problems with material that isn’t being addressed in the tutorial communication to use the Academic Learning Centre. If you are a little worried about your maths this semester you need to be aware of this resource. You will get best results if you come to the helpers there with specific questions.

Week 8

We drove into Chapter 4 Algebra, spending a lot of time talking about equations.

In tutorial, C-X focused on Test 2, while C-Y had a good tutorial on functions.

Week 9

We are practically finished talking about the basics of equations. We will spend a lecture or two talking about indices/exponentials. Then we will introduce logs as inverses of exponential functions.

In tutorial, C-X will look at functions, and C-Y move onto algebra. We are very short for time for tutorials: students are advised to spend some time outside tutorials working on exercises.

Week 10

We will spend more time talking about logs, and then we will fly through mini-Chapter 5. Ideally we will spend the last lecture doing the Sample Test 3 in the manual.

40% Test 3 – Functions Algebra

This test will take place Thursday 15 December at 4 pm. Probably in the IT Building (watch this space).

The tutorials were focused on Chapter 3 aka Test 2. There was some Chapter 4 tutorial time in lectures.

Week 10

We will finish looking at applications of partial differentiation to error analysis. Then we will look at parametric differentiation.

The tutorials will again be focused on Chapter 3. We might get some tutorial time on Chapter 4 in lectures.

Week 11

We will hopefully finish Chapter 4 by looking at Related Rates and Implicit Differentiation.

The tutorials will be focused on Chapter 4.

Week 9

We looked at the normal distribution (more calculation focused), and then started looking at sampling.

We had only one tutorial, where most students were working on Chapter 2, for Assignment 2.

Week 10

We will finish our look at sampling and then look at hypothesis testing.

As I write, we had our tutorial on Tuesday. Many students continued working on Chapter 2, but some started looking at the normal distribution.

30% Test 2 – Equivalence Relations & Graphs

Test 2 takes place 6 p.m. Wednesday 23 November in the Melbourn Hall.

We have now completed the material for Test 2. Everything in Chapters 1 and 2 is examinable, with the emphasis on transitive and equivalence relations as well as Chapter 2. You may be required to use algebra to prove that a relation is reflexive, symmetric, or transitive.

There is a sample test on p.88 of the test. This is only to give you an idea of the type of content (but not specific questions) that will be examined. The test may be a little longer and/or harder.

Please note:

• Do not to congregate outside the Melbourn Hall until 10 minutes before the assessment is due to commence and do wait outside until you are ready to begin your assessment.

• Be mindful of groups already in the hall when entering the exam hall.

• Do not congregate in the waiting area of the Melbourn building when the assessment has finished as the noise can disrupt the students completing their assessment.

• Leave their bags in the shelved area just inside the exam hall doors – not on the floor in the exam hall lobby.  As we get busier, space will become scarce in the shelved area so if possible, only bring essential items (pens, calculators etc.) to the venue.

Week 7

We finished Chapter 3, by talking about inverses, and looked at some examples of invertible functions that we will use in the chapter on Algebra… which we started.

In tutorial we focused on Test 2 material.

Week 8

We will drive into Chapter 4 Algebra. We have nine lectures to cover Algebra and the rest of Functions (Chapter 5)

In tutorial, C-X will focus on Test 2, while C-Y will move onto Test 3: Functions & Algebra.

No MATH7019 class Friday 18 November (Week 9)

The Friday lecture will be preponed to Thursday 17 November at 10:00 in C212.

Assignment 2

Assignment 2 based on Chapter 2 is on Canvas now: Canvas —> MATH7019 —> Assignments. It is due in two weeks.

Week 8

Due to a technical issue the week started with two tutorials. We looked at Euler’s Method and then we started looking at Chapter 3, where we discussed some of the theory of probability, including random variables, events, mutual exclusivity, and independence.

Week 9

We will look at the normal distribution (more calculation focused), and then start looking at sampling.

We will probably have only one tutorial (Tuesday).

No MATH6040 classes Friday 18 November (Week 9)

The Friday lecture will be preponed to Monday 14 November at 13:00 in B190. I appreciate this is not a good slot for all students, so I will point towards a video lecture that can partially substitute for it.

The Friday tutorial will be moved to Tuesday 15 November at 13:00 in B240.

Test 2

Week 8

We will look at more applications of integration, to centroids and centres of gravity. We started Chapter 4 with a revision class on differentiation.

Week 9

We will drive into Chapter 4, talking first about transforms, and then functions of several variables and partial differentiation. We should be able to look at applications of partial differentiation to error analysis.

The tutorials will be focused on Chapter 3. We might get some tutorial time on Chapter 4 in lectures.

Outlook

We will complete Chapter 4 over Weeks 10 and 11. The tutorials in Week 11 will be focused on Chapter 3/Test 2, but Week 11 and possibly Week 12 will be focused on Chapter 4. Week 12 lectures will be revision.

30% Test 1 – Sets & Relations – Results

These have been released in an announcement.

Week 6

We drove into Chapter 3, on Functions. We saw their definition in terms of a domain, codomain, and a set of ordered pairs. We learned that we can visualise functions with arrow diagrams (usually for small domains), and coordinate graphs (usually for functions that map reals to reals). We learned about the properties of a function: namely 1-1, onto, and bijective. We spoke about compositions.

Week 7

We will finish Chapter 3, by talking about inverses, and look at some examples of invertible functions that we will use in the chapter on Algebra… which we will also start hopefully.

We will focus in tutorial on the Test 2 material.
