Quiz 2 Results

Below find the results. You are identified by the last four digits of your student number unless you are excelling. The marks are out of 2.5 percentage points. Your best eight quizzes go to the 20% mark for quizzes. The R % column is your running percentage (for best eight quizzes). The QPP is your Quiz Percentage Points. MPP is your Maple percentage points. GPP is your gross percentage points. One student didn’t write down their name for Quiz 1. They should email me.

Quiz 3 Question Bank

Question bank for Quiz 3 (in Week 4) is as follows:

  • P. 35, Q.1-4, 7,8, 10 (yes, again)
  • P. 50, Q. 1 (i) and (ii)

If you have any specific difficulties with these questions, please email me. Alternatively use Maple or Wolfram Alpha to help. Your Quiz 3 Questions will be taken from these. The final answers will not be given on the quiz paper and neither is there any value in writing down the final answers alone — you will receive marks for full and correct solutions — but nothing for final answers without justification or skipping important steps. No hints will appear either. Please don’t learn off model solutions — you need to understand the material not just on a superficial level to do well later on.

Quiz 3 runs from 19:00 to 19:15 sharp on Wednesday 22 February.
