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 1

We had one lecture and after listening to me go on about the importance of mathematics to your programme we started the first chapter on Sets and Relations. We saw something new with the concept of the power set of a set.

Week 2

In Week 2 we will look more at sets and set identities, and explore Cartesian Products and perhaps introduce relations.

Tutorials

Tutorials start properly in Week 2.

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. If you are a little worried about your maths this semester, perhaps after the Quick Test (emails about the Quick Test will be sent on Monday) or in general, you need to be aware of this resource. As you can see the timetable is quite generous:

Maths/Statistics Support in the ALC (Academic Learning Centre)

You will get best results if you come to the helpers there with specific questions.

Assessment 1

There will be a 15% In-Class-Test in Week 5/6. Expect notice two weeks in advance and a sample test about 10 days in advance.
