Transposition Project – Part II

October 22 you took a quiz as part of the Transposition Project that the Mathematics Department is undertaking in an effort to improve our teaching.

You will have another 15 minute quiz on Monday.

If you do not have an internet ready device, or did not do the first quiz, you may leave class early.

Thank you again for your participation.

Test 2

Test 2, worth 15% of your final grade, based on Chapter 3: Algebra, will take place on Friday 30 November in the usual lecture venue of B214.

All Chapter 3 material is examinable, but the test will be similar to the sample test.

There will also be a question on the growth rate of functions: the relevant info to answer these questions are on p. 81, and they are exercises 18, 19 on p. 79.

Here is a sample test.

The sample is to give you an idea of the length of the test. You know from Test 1 the layout (i.e. you write your answers on the paper). You will be allowed use a calculator for all questions.

I strongly advise you that, for those who might have done poorly, or not particularly well, in Test 1, attending tutorials alone will not be sufficient preparation for this test, and you will have to devote extra time outside classes to study aka do exercises.

Week 10

We introduced and studied the properties of uses of logarithms. We began the chapter on Network Theory by looking at the Bridges of Konigsberg Problem.

Week 11

In Week 11 we will explore Network Theory, or rather Graph Theory, in more depth. We will look at digraphsconnectednessdegreewalks, and trees.

Test 2 will be on Friday.

Week 12

We will finish our study of Graph Theory by looking at Eulerian graphsFleury’s AlgorithmHamiltonian graphs, and Dirac’s Theorem.

We might have time for an additional tutorial.

Week 13

We will have three review lectures (it might not be possible to have the third lecture on Friday — watch this space) and tutorials as normal.

I have drafted a sample paper and we will go through this exam on the board and then I will answer your questions if there are any. If there are none I will help one-to-one. Usual class times and locations.

Tutorials on Week 13 at the usual times and venue.


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.
