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.

Assessment 1

Assessment 1 has been emailed to all of you.

Start ASAP.

The hand in date in Friday 11 October 2019. Work handed in late shall be assigned a mark of zero. The hand in time is presently 13:00 but this may be extended to later in that day.

Telegram App

For those who have already contacted me, I hope to have this set up for Monday.

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


The “your choice” split worked well last week and we will continue it this week.

You choose to attend either tutorial:

  • 11:00 in A243L
  • 12:00 in A213B
Tutorials are the most important thing in your learning.

Week 3

We had a tutorial for the Monday lecture — on linear least squares.

Then we finished looking at Chapter 1, and started looking at Chapter 2: Differential Equations — with a particular emphasis on Beam Equations.

Week 4

We will probably not have a tutorial on Monday, but instead plough into chapter two: we will hopefully start looking in particular at simply supported beams.

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 or in general, you need to be aware of this resource. As you can see the timetable is quite generous.

CIT Mathematics Exam Papers

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


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.
