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.

MCQ Results

As discussed previously, the MCQ results will come out the day you hand in the homework: 11 April 2014. I will send the homework next week.

Week 8

We finished describing Chaos Theory and began proving that the Doubling Mapping is chaotic.

Week 9

We will finish our study of the Doubling Mapping and possibly start talking about complex numbers.


I have emailed ye a copy of the exercises. For the Week 9 tutorial you should look at Q.46 and Q. 47. 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.

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 conjecture about the iterates of the tangent function.
