Your timetable is wrong in the naming of this module. MATH6040 is Technological Maths 201 and not Technological Maths 2. You did Technological Maths 2: MATH6015, last year.

Test 1

Test 1, worth 15%, takes place from 16:00 to 16:50 sharp, Monday 14 October in the Melbourne Hall (rows I-K). I have emailed your 15:00-16:00 lecturers so that they will leave you plenty of time to get to the Melbourne.

There is a sample on P.46 of the notes to give you an idea of the length and layout only.

Almost everything in Chapter 1 is examinable. Additional practise questions may be found by looking at past exam papers (usually vectors are Q. 1, sometimes Q. 2).

You will want to be familiar with all the concepts in the Vector Summary, P. 42-45.

Week 4

We finished looking at the applications of vectors to work and moments and began Chapter 2: Matrices. We did some examples of matrix arithmetic. Here find a note that answers the question: why do we multiply matrices like we do?

We also did a Concept MCQ to summarise Chapter 1.

Week 5

We will look at Matrix Inverses — “dividing” for Matrices. This will allow us to solve matrix equations. We will look at linear systems, and possibly determinants.

If you join you will have have consented to be a member of this group. This group is supposed to be like a WhatsApp group but with some added privacy.

You should be able to leave whenever you want. If you feel this is working well for you, invite more colleagues.

You can ask anything you want about MATH6040 in the group. I recommend using photos to highlight exercises or your efforts, etc. As the best way to learn is to teach, ideally other students in the group will answer questions. Every morning I will answer unanswered questions.

It is good to put some humanity into everything we do, but do not even approach the line of inappropriateness. Keep things professional please.

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.


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

CIT Mathematics Exam Papers

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