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.

Note: We are supposed to be C212 rather than B212 as advertised by Conor.

Quiz 1 Question Bank

Please see here for your question bank for Quiz 1 (in Week 2). Here you can find the tables that will be allowed.

Quiz 1 runs from 19:00 to 19:15 sharp on Wednesday 11 February.

Continuous Assessment

The Continuous Assessment is broken into Weekly Quizzes (20%) and Maple (10%).

There will be ten weekly quizzes and your eight best results will count (so 2.5% per quiz from eight quizzes). You will receive an email (i.e. this one) on Thursday/Friday detailing the examinable exercises.

Maple consists of five labs and a Maple Test in the sixth lab. Satisfactory participation in labs gives you 1.5% and the Maple Test is worth 2.5%. More on this in the coming days.

Week 1

In Week 1 we explained the kind of thing that we would be looking at in this module. We did a quick review of integral calculus.

Week 2

In Week 2 we will look at u-substitutions. Then we will study Integration by Parts: this is the start of the new material (i.e. not MATH6019 material).

If we have a Maple lab we will do some basic plotting, differentiation and integration.

Week 6

As briefly mentioned in class, I will be away in Week 6 (11 March). I am proposing that we have a class over the Easter Break. In particular, I am thinking 1 April. Please email me if this not possible for you giving your reasons.


I have given out 15 sets of the notes. I received the €11 from everyone who got a manual. Please bring €11 for next week as more manuals will be printed. If you know someone who is not registered and who was absent in Week 1 please get them to email me at jpmccarthymaths@gmail.com so that I can order them a manual.

A student was asking did I have MATH6019-type notes that revision could be done with. You could look at an old higher level maths book, look in the library for anything with “Calculus” in the title.


Please feel free to ask me questions about the exercises via email or even better on this webpage. Anyone can give me exercises they have done and I will correct them.
