MCQ Announcement

I have decided to make the MCQ open book and also ye will have 50 minutes and not 30 minutes as previously stated.

  • Do bring in paper for you to tease out questions
  • Do expect to do just as good without notes as with notes
  • Don’t expect it take you 50 minutes to do the test. You can leave early or if you want get some study in

The Concept MCQ will take place this Wednesday 26 February Week 8 in WGB G05. It starts at 10.05 and runs until 10.55.

Week 7

In Week 7 we finished of our study of the Tent Mapping and began talking about Chaos Theory.

Week 8

In Week 8 we will begin our study of the Doubling Mapping.


I have emailed ye a copy of the exercises. For the Week 8 tutorial you should look at Q.48 and Q. 49. At some point you need to backtrack and look at questions 30-37. These are questions that are harder than the test but use the same ideas.

Test and Other CA

The results and solutions of the test were emailed to the class.

The Concept MCQ will take place on Wednesday 26 February Week 8 in WGB G05.

The homework will be given to you towards the end of the semester and I will give ye three weeks to do it. It will be on complex numbers and won’t be as long as last year’s homework (MS2001 nor MS3011).

You will be given marks for the best two out of Test, Concept MCQ and Homework.

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 result about the periodic points of the tent mapping.
