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.

Academic Learning Centre

If you are a little worried about your maths this semester, perhaps after the Quick Test or in general, I would just like to remind you about the Academic Learning Centre. Most students received slips detailing areas of maths that they should brush up on. The timetable is here: there is some availability after 16:00 on Mondays and Tuesdays.

Week 2

We finished the dot product examples.

Then we had extensive tutorial time in which we worked on:

  • P.23, Q.1-10
  • P.45, Sample Test, Q. 1, 2, 4
  • P. 203, Winter 2018, Q. 1 (a), (b)

Then we started talking about the cross product.

Homework Exercises

If you do any of the suggested exercises you can give them to me for correction. Please feel free to ask me questions about the exercises via email or even better on this webpage.

  • P.23, Q.1-10
  • P.45, Sample Test, Q. 1, 2, 4
  • P. 203, Winter 2018, Q. 1 (a), (b)
  • I also handed out an older exam paper: you might be able to do some of Q. 1 (a).

Week 3

We will start working with the cross product and begin to look at the applications of vectors to work and moments. There will be no tutorial time.

Test 1

If we finish the Vectors chapter the test will be in Week 5: otherwise we will push this out to Week 6. Official notice will be given in Week 3 (or Week 4 if necessary). There is a sample test in the notes.

CIT Mathematics Exam Papers

These are not always found in your programme selection — most of the time you will have to look here.
