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.

Assessment 5

Assessment 5 is Wednesday 10 December in the Melbourne Building at 6.15 pm. Keep an eye on your CIT Blackboard and email for the latest and definitive assessment information.

Week 12

In Week 12 we verified Snell’s Law using a graph. Then we discussed linear models and formulated a linear model for the amount of Carbon Dioxide in the atmosphere using data and a graph. Then we discussed how to linearise a non-linear relationship and finally model the spread of a disease — the whole time using graphs.

Week 13

Tutorial times as normal. Obviously no tutorials on Thursday.

The lecture times will be given over to tutorials by me: same times and rooms.


  • Group A with Mr. Adrian O’Connor: Wednesday 09:00 in B187 and Thursday 09:00 in B185
  • Group B with myself: Monday 12:00 in F1. 3 and Thursday 12:00 in B165


If you go to

Blackboard -> MATH6000 -> Content -> Numbas Tests,

you will find plenty of online tests developed by Mr. Pat Ahern. Give them a try if you are at a computer!

Please feel free to ask me questions about the exercises via email or even better on this webpage.
