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.

Manuals

The manuals are available in the Copy Centre. Please purchase ASAP. More information has been sent via email.

Tutorials

Tutorials, which are absolutely vital, start next week.

Week 1

In week one we had one and a half classes. One class was given over to a general overview of MATH7019 and we spent about half an hour introducing the topic of Curve Fitting.

Week 2

We will introduce Lagrange Interpolation and start 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. If you are a little worried about your maths this semester, perhaps after the Quick Test 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. Next week, some students will receive slips detailing areas of maths that they should brush up on.

Assessment 1

Assessment 1 will have a hand-in date around Week 5. Definite date to follow. The Assignment is in the manual but I must also send on your personal data sets.

Study

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.
