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 1

Please find the results below. You are identified by the last four digits of your student number unless you excelled.

The average of the students with one attendance warning was 70. This average drops by 10 percentage points for each attendance warning.

As I mentioned at the start of the semester, this chapter is arguably the most straightforward and the easiest way to pass this module is to do well in the vectors test and exam question. Those of us who are attending class and still performing poorly need more help than the tutorials alone. The students in this category need to start attending the Academic Learning Centre to boost their performance.

I handed out and corrected a Quick Test with suggestions. I would advise poorly performing students to bring this Quick Test with them to the Academic Learning Centre. Furthermore I am going to put up one problem per week that poorly performing students should bring to the ALC and try with the help of the maths lecturers there.

## Week 5

We have been looking at Matrix Equations.

## Week 7

We will look at determinants.

## Week 6

I will be away in Week 6 (9 – 13 March) so you have no maths next week.

We will have catch up classes on Tuesdays at 14:00 in C236 in Weeks 8, 9 and 10. That is an extra MATH6040 lecture on
