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

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

Tutorials

Are now running as per your timetable.

Week 2

We introduced Lagrange Interpolation and Least Squares curve fitting.

Week 3

We will speak briefly about the Pearson correlation coefficient, and will begin talking about fitting curves/models that aren’t of the form

Y=a\,\theta_1(X)+b\,\theta_2(X)

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)

D259

4.00pm-5.00pm

D259

Thursday

Friday

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. I am just waiting for the class to settle completely before sending on 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.

Student Resources

Please see the Student Resources tab on the top of this page for information on the Academic Learning Centre, etc.
