I am emailing a link of this to everyone on the class list every week. 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.com and I will add you to the mailing list.

Test 2: Notice and Sample

Test 2 will take place on Thursday 28 November at 17:00, in B228. Please find a sample to give you an idea of the format. I will give you a copy of this on Monday. The test will also come with a set of tables and formulae which you will get with Monday’s notes.

Course Notes

At the moment they look like this.

Week 9

In Week 9 we started our work on probability after looking at some more non-homogenous second order linear differential equations with boundary conditions. We have so far just looked at the Binomial distribution.

Week 10

In Week 10 we will look at the Poisson and Normal distributions.

Academic Learning Centre

I would urge anyone having any problems with material that isn’t being addressed in the tutorials to use the Academic Learning Centre. As you can see the timetable is quite generous. You will get best results if you come to the helpers there with specific questions.

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 how many times you should win the lotto.
