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 5

In Week 5 we looked more at sets and explored Cartesian Products We introduced relations. Then on Friday we looked harder at elementssubsets, power sets and the empty set.

Week 6

In Week 6 we will look at the Inclusion-Exclusion Principle and the properties of relations. We should start the chapter on Functions and then have our Test 1 on Friday.

Assessment 1

Test 1 will be held at 09:00, Friday 20 October in Week 6. Everything up to but not including relations is examinable. I have emailed ye a sample, a hard copy of which I will provide you with next week.


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, cartesian products, and power sets. We all have only one hour of tutorials before the test and finding two  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.
