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.

There has been a change in your timetable. Thursday’s lecture now takes place in B260 rather than B245.


The manuals are  available in the Copy Centre and must be purchased as soon as possible.


Tutorial for Group A: Mondays at 14:00 in E4

Tutorial for Group B: Thursdays at 14:00 in B245

Week 1

We began our study of Chapter 2, Vector Algebra. We looked at how to both visualise vectors and describe them algebraically. We learned how to find the magnitude of a vector, add them and scalar multiply them. We spoke about displacement vectors and introduced the vector product known as the dot product.

Week 2

We will continue working with the dot product and then introduce the cross product.

Test 1

The test will be in Week 5. There is a sample test in the notes.


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