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.

Week 1*: Easter Catch-Up Class

I had planned on having a ‘Maple’ night Wednesday 23 March during the Easter break but considering where we are in the notes this is not going to be possible.

Instead we will have a revision class where will work on the following questions in the lecture to help us revise for the test immediately after Easter. When I have finished working on these we will have a break and return to room B228 which has loads of room so I can go around helping people one-to-one.

Here is a summary of the Linear Algebra Methods.

Students are advised to attend because although I intend to record the examples I do, I cannot guarantee that the recording is successful.

Test 1

Test 1 will take place 6 April in Week 8 in B149. The test I gave last time I taught this module is at the end of Chapter 1. 

Maple Labs

Due to the large number of students attending the module MATH6038 Mathematics for Science 2.2, we now have to introduce a lab split. 

If your name is listed under February 2016, 17 Wednesday, 6.00 pm here (i.e. the first column), you should come in at 18:00. Otherwise come in for a 19:15 start.

The following is the new proposed schedule for Weeks 9, 11 and 12(test)

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

Wednesdays 18:00-19:05 – Maple Lab in room C128

Wednesdays 19:15-20.55 – Theory class in room C214

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

Wednesdays 19:15-20.55 – Theory class in room C214

Wednesdays 20:55-22:00 – Maple Lab in room C128

Week 7*

In Week 7 we started Chapter 2 on Statistics. If you missed this class you can see what we covered (on the slides only):

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.


I would suggest that if you are going to do some work this week you should look at the questions and then do some more Linear Algebra revision.

Maple Catch Up

If you want to do Maple catch up (if you miss a lab) you have two options:

  • download the Maple file from your email, do the exercises in Maple (either in a new worksheet or on top of the original file with the exercises), save the worksheet and email me the worksheet you were working on.
  • come in for a double Maple session on a ‘Maple’ night
