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.


The manuals are available in the Copy Centre and are required for Monday’s lecture.

Week 2

We looked more at sets and set identities and looked at truth tables.

Week 3

In Week 3 we will look at the Laws of Sets and move onto Cartesian Products and Relations.

Telegram App

I am exploring the possibility of setting up a classroom group chat that would have the functionality of WhatsApp without having your phone number made public.

If this is something you might be interested in, please download the Telegram app and set yourself up with an @ handle.

We might talk about this again next week.

Quick Test: Academic Learning Centre

I would urge anyone having any problems with material that isn’t being addressed in the tutorials to use the Academic Learning Centre. If you are a little worried about your maths this semester, perhaps after the Quick Test (emails about the Quick Test will be sent on Monday) or in general, you need to be aware of this resource.

The timetable can be viewed here. You will get best results if you come to the helpers there with specific questions.

Assessment 1

There will be a 15% In-Class-Test in Week 6. Probably the Tuesday 14 October. Expect notice and a sample test about two weeks in advance.


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.

Student Resources

Please see the Student Resources tab on the top of this page for information on the Academic Learning Centre, etc.
