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.

I have sent an email about indicating your availability for doing Maple at 18:00 and what Wednesday during Easter doesn’t suit you. 

I also sent an email to some of ye regarding manuals.

Week 2*

After introductions, we looked at systems of linear equations and introduced the idea of writing them in augmented matrix form and simplifying using Gaussian Elimination. We will discuss how to determine if the linear system has a unique, infinite or no solution.

Week 3*

We will probably just do more examples of solving linear systems.

Maple Labs

Due to the large number of students attending the module MATH6038 Mathematics for Science 2.2, we will have to introduce a lab split starting this week, on Wednesday 17 February.

The following is the proposed schedule for Weeks 3, 5, 1*, 7, 9, 11:

Group 1 – Starts at 18:00 and Finishes at 20:50:

Wednesdays 19:15-20.55 – Theory class in room C212

Group 2 – Starts at 19:15 and Finishes at 22:00:

Wednesdays 19:15-20.55 – Theory class in room C212

Wednesdays 20:55-22:00 – Maple Lab in room C214

Test 1

Test 1 will take place 6 April in Week 8.

Independent Learning: Exercises

You are supposed to be working outside of class and I am supposed to help you with this. Working outside of class means doing the exercises in the notes. Any work that is handed up will be corrected by me. Also you can ask me a question here on this site and I will answer it ASAP.

Questions you can do include (question 2 shouldn’t be there):

P.20 Q. 1, 5, 6, 7. Harder questions are 8 and 9.
