This Week

On Wednesday we had our test and on Thursday we finished section 4.2 and have gotten as far as the second example in section 4.3.

In the tutorial we did p.48 Q. 2-4 and p. 59 Q. 3(a). We also spoke about the following integrals:

  • \displaystyle\int \,dx
  • \displaystyle\int 1\,dx
  • \displaystyle\int x^0\,dx
  • \displaystyle\int k\,dx
  • \displaystyle\int 0\,dx

Exercise from Notes

Redo Example 2 from section 4.2 using the formula we derived in section 4.3. Don’t make the same mistake I did in deriving this second formula — this needs a bit more care…

Test Results

I won’t have them as fast as I’d like is all I can say. I’ll do my best.


Now that the test is over you may begin thinking about your project/homework. You have a choice of six projects — one for each full chapter. The final date for submission is 24 April 2012. You have full freedom in which one you want to do and can hand up early if you want. Please submit to the big box at the School of Mathematical Science.  If I were you I would aim to get it done and dusted early as this is creeping into your study time and is very close to the summer examinations.

Note that you are free to collaborate with each other and use references but this must be indicated on your hand-up in a declaration. Evidence of copying or plagiarism will result in divided marks or no marks respectively. You will not receive diminished marks for declared collaboration or referencing although I demand originality of presentation. If you have a problem interpreting any question feel free to approach me, comment on the webpage or email.

Ensure to put your name, student number, module code (MS 2002), my name, and your declaration on your homework.
