Transposition Project

On Monday you will be sent a 20 minute quiz that you will take on a mobile internet device — such as your mobile phone — during Monday’s lecture. You will have another quiz again after we finish studying algebra.

These quizzes do not affect your MATH6055 grade but are part of a larger project the Mathematics Department is undertaking in an effort to improve our teaching.

If you do not have an internet ready device you may leave class early.

Test 1 Results

Have been emailed to you. I will have your scripts with me in tutorials and will send out the marking scheme next week.

Reading Break, etc.

Classes will be going full steam ahead on Monday and Tuesday 22/23 October as well as Wednesday and Friday 31 October and 2 November. I will call the next two weeks by Week 7.

Week 6

In Week 6 we had our first test and finished our our study of functions and their properties. We started looking at algebra by looking first at number sets. We learnt, for example, that division by zero is undefined. See here for more.

Week 7

In Week 7 we will start really getting to grips with algebra.

Test 2

Test 2, based on Chapter 3: Algebra, will take place around the end of Week 10, start of Week 11.


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.
