Quiz 3 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 3. They should email me.

Maple Labs
The Maple Lab takes place in C128.
The 15 individuals who responded to the poll and wanted to start at 18:00 (below) are guaranteed a spot in the early sitting. If there is space for more they can be accommodated, otherwise they have to start at 19:15 and do Maple at 20:55. Note there is a smaller class for the later Maple. If you are struggling with Maple you could consider switching to the later class to get more attention.
The following is the proposed schedule for Weeks 3, 5, 7, 8, 10, 11:
Group 1 – Starts at 18:00 and Finishes at 20:50:
Wednesdays 18:0019:05 – Maple Lab in room C128
Wednesdays 19:1519:30 – Weekly Quiz in C212
Wednesdays 19:3020.50 – Theory class in room C128
Group 2 – Starts at 19:15 and Finishes at 22:00:
Wednesdays 19:1519:30 – Weekly Quiz in C128
Wednesdays 19:3020:50 – Theory class in room C212
Wednesdays 20.5522:00 – Maple Lab in room C128
In weeks where there is no Maple Lab, the quiz will take place from 19:0019:15 sharp.
Quiz 4 Question Bank
Question bank for Quiz 4 (in Week 5) is as follows:

P. 50, Q.17

P.54, Q. 13

P. 56, Q. 13
It is probably unreasonable to do all of these (particularly the p. 50 questions). When you think you understand how to do the questions doing more is only practise which has diminishing returns.
If you have any specific difficulties with these questions, please email me. Alternatively use Maple or Wolfram Alpha to help. Your Quiz 4 Questions will be taken from these.
Quiz 4 runs from 19:15 to 19:30 sharp on Wednesday 1 March.

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.
Academic Learning Centre
I would urge anyone having any problems with the material to use the Academic Learning Centre. You will get best results if you come to the helpers there with specific questions.
Study
Please feel free to ask me questions about the exercises via email or even better on this webpage. Anyone can give me exercises they have done and I will correct them. I also advise that you visit the Academic Learning Centre.
Student Resources
Please see the Student Resources tab on the top of this page for information on the Academic Learning Centre, etc..
