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.


The manuals are available in the Copy Centre. Please purchase ASAP.


Tutorials, which are absolutely vital, start next week.

Week 1

In week one we spoke in general terms about curve fitting. We introduced Lagrange Interpolation and started talking about Least Squares curve fitting.

Week 2

In Week 2 we will continue talking about Least Squares Curve Fitting.

Quick Test: Academic Learning Centre

I would urge anyone having any problems with material that isn’t being addressed in the tutorials to use the Academic Learning Centre. As you can see the timetable is quite generous. You will get best results if you come to the helpers there with specific questions.

I have already advised some of ye to go to the ALC for specific help from what you presented to me in the quick test.

Assessment 1

Assessment 1 will have a hand-in date around Week 5. Definite date to follow. Expect to see the assignment in Week 2 or Week 3.


Please feel free to ask me questions about the exercises via email or even better on this webpage — especially those of us who struggled in the test.

Please see the Student Resources tab on the top of this page for information on the Academic Learning Centre, etc.
