I have applied to get this changed to WGB G03… I didn’t get everything. The timetable is

  • This week coming 7 March LL2
  • 14 March WGB G03
  • 21 March WGB G03
  • 28 March WGB G03

Week 8

We finished our study of the tent mapping and began our study of the doubling mapping.

Week 9

We will finish off our work on the doubling mapping and then we will start talking about complex numbers; in particular the geometry of complex arithmetic and complex dynamics.
