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 4

In Week 4 we finished looking at logarithms and started the second chapter on Sets and Relations. I tried and failed to tell you about the barber paradox.

Week 5

In Week 5 we will look more at sets and set identities, and explore Cartesian Products and perhaps introduce relations.

Assessment 1

Test 1 will be held at 09:00, Friday 20 October in Week 6. Note this is different to your assessment schedule provided by the head of department, Tim Horgan. Expect a sample this time next week. Only material from Weeks 1-5 will be examined.


We are probably all going to have to put in some extra study before the test. Please try and find some extra time to try exercises, particularly with any new or harder material such as logs. We all have two hours of tutorials before the test and finding two extra hours to do exercises will make a big difference. Please feel free to ask me questions about the exercises via email or even better on this webpage.
