This ‘Test’ does not go towards your grade, but allows me to give you some feedback on where you are in terms of material you have seen before that will be used in this module.

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.

Week 2

We continued working with the dot product and then introduced the cross product.

Week 3

We will look at the applications of vectors to work and moments. We might begin Chapter 2: Matrices.


Please feel free to ask me questions about the exercises via email or even better on this webpage.
