## Mathematics Exam Advice

• The first piece of advice is to read questions carefully. Don’t glance at a question and go off writing: take a moment to understand what you have been asked to do.
• Don’t use tippex; instead draw a simple line(s) through work that you think is incorrect.
• For equations, check your solution by substituting your solution into the original equation. If your answer is wrong and you know it is wrong: write that on your script.

If you do have time at the end of the exam, go through each of your answers and ask yourself:

1. have I answered the question that was asked?
2. does my answer make sense?
3. check your answer (e.g. differentiate/antidifferentiate an antiderivative/derivative, substitute your solution into equations, check your answer against a rough estimate, or what a picture is telling you, etc)

## Week 12

On Monday and Tuesday we had extra tutorials: you were invited to either work on integration and/or matrices; the choice was up to you.

On Thursday we finished off the module by doing an extra example of a centre of gravity of a solid of revolution. We had tutorial time after that.

## Week 13

There is an exam paper at the back of your notes — I will go through this on the board in the lecture times (in the usual venues):

• Monday 16:00
• Tuesday 09:00
• Thursday 09:00

We will also have tutorial time in the tutorial slots. You can come to as many tutorials as you like.

• Monday at 09:00 in E15
• Monday at 17:00 in B189
• Thursday at 12:00 in E4

Past exam papers (MATH6040 runs in Semester 1 and Semester 2) may be found here.

Recall that this module is MATH6040: Technological Maths 201 and not MATH6015: Technological Maths 2.
