Test 1

Test 1, worth 15% of your final grade, will take place in the usual D160 lecture venue at 10:00 on Tuesday 16 October. You have been sent a sample paper. The names of Laws of Sets on the sample is the same as how they will be named on the test and final exam.

Test 1 will cover the contents of Chapter 1 and the sample will give an idea of the layout and length of the test. The following types of questions are examinable:

  • Stuff on the sample test
  • P.20, Q. 1, 3 [note \mathcal{P}(X) is a typo: it should be \mathcal{P}(U)], 4, 6-7, 9, 13-14
  • P.26, Q. 1-4
  • P.30, Q. 2
  • P. 36, Q.1-3

Questions like those exercises not listed here will not appear on your exam paper but are still useful to help your learning and understanding. For example, working with truth tables should help your understanding of the Laws of Sets.

I have also sent on some additional exercises on equivalence relations via email.

Week 5

In Week 5 we continued our study of functions and their properties. We considered the composition of functions — and inverse functions. We started looking at examples of functions.

Week 6

In Week 6 we will complete our study of functions.


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.
