Test 1

Results and Marking Scheme have been emailed to you.

Test 2

On Chapter 3, is planned for 5 pm (not 4 pm) Monday 25 NovemberPlease contact me if this poses a problem for you.

Outlook

For most students, Chapters 1 and 2 are easier and you will want to do well on them. Things are going to get a little harder for the rest of the semester and you will need to attend class regularly and prepare well for Test 2.

You have already been recommended to use your Reading Week:

If you plan on doing some work on MATH6040 over the Reading Week, may I recommend looking at Chapter 2 exercises:

P. 95, Q. 1 (find b only), Q. 2-4
P. 85, Q. 1
P. 80, Q. 1-4
P. 84, Q. 1-2
P. 64, Q. 1-4 (remember BEMDAS — AD^T = A(D^T) not = (AD)^T)
If you are happy with these look at the differentiation revision: p.103, Q.1-2
You can email me at any time if you have any questions.

Week 7

We started Chapter 3 with a review of differentiation followed by a look at Parametric Differentiation.

Here are two videos if you missed this material:

We mentioned briefly the Reuleaux Triangle and it’s use in the “Harry Watt Square Drill Bit”. See here for an animation of how this works.

Week 8

We will finish looking at Related Rates and then look at Implicit Differentiation. If you are interested in a very “mathsy” approach to curves you can look at this.

Test 2

On Chapter 3, is planned for 5 pm (not 4 pm) Monday 25 NovemberPlease contact me if this poses a problem for you.

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.

Study

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.

Student Resources

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