I am emailing a link of this to everyone on the class list every Friday afternoon. If you are not receiving these emails or want to have them sent to another email address feel free to email me at jpmccarthymaths@gmail.ie and I will add you to the mailing list.

Weeks 9

In Week 9 we finished our study of partial differentiation — and looked at its applications to error analysis — and spoke about related rates (which I probably should have done first but anyway!). I have a one page summary of further differentiation and an error analysis worked example which I will give you on Tuesday.

Week 10

In Week 10 we will begin our study of further integration by looking at integration by parts.

Test 2

We will have test 2 on the entirety of the further differentiation material in Week 11. Please find a sample. The test will be held on Wednesday April 23.


A relatively recent set of lecture notes — including related rates and implicit differentiation…also you might find this E-book useful.

Math.Stack Exchange

If you find yourself stuck and for some reason feel unable to ask me the question you could do worse than go to the excellent site math.stackexchange.com. If you are nice and polite, and show due deference to these principles you will find that your questions are answered promptly. For example this question about related rates.
