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 is next Friday 11 October 2019. I am happy so say that I can push the deadline out to 17:30 on FridayIf you don’t want to hand up your assignment in the Friday tutorial (or a class earlier that week), you can drop that afternoon to my office, A283.


The “your choice” split is working well and will continue.

We will also have an additional tutorial this coming Monday.

Tutorials are the most important thing in your learning.


Week 4

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

We also had a Concept MCQ on Chapter One on Thursday.

Week 5

We will have an extra tutorial on Monday. We will then look at more examples of simply supported beams before moving onto fixed-end beams.

Telegram App

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

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 MATH7019 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.

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.
