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.


If you haven’t got your manual yet please get it ASAP.


Are now running as per your timetable.

Week 2

We looked at how to both visualise vectors and describe them algebraically. We learned how to find the magnitude  and direction of a vector, and add them and scalar multiply them. We spoke about displacement vectors and introduced the vector product known as the dot product.

Week 3

We will start working with the vector product and begin to look at the applications of vectors to work and moments.

Test 1

The test will probably be the Monday of Week 5: if progress with the vectors material is slow, we may push this out to Week 6. Official notice will be given in Week 3 (or Week 4 if necessary). There is a sample test in the notes.


Please feel free to ask me questions about the exercises via email or even better on this webpage.
