Tutorial Split

See my email of 12 November regarding the Friday tutorial split for the rest of the semester.

Tomorrow we go back to the normal room of A213B for the 12:00 tutorial.

Assessment 2 — Corrections

Hopefully I can get these to ye within the week. I have some ‘man flu’ at the moment but hopefully that goes away.

Week 10

We had an extra tutorial on Monday. Most people concentrated on the Sample Question 3s on Probability and Statistics.

We finished off Chapter 3 — and spoke about the Bad and Good and Bad News — before we began Chapter 4 with a Revision of Differentiation and had a look at Maclaurin Series.

Oh: one thing — I never told ye what a p-value was (Sample Paper I Q. 3 (c) B ii.). It is the same as the level of significance, the probability of making a Type I Error… the answer is 5%.

Week 11

We will have a tutorial dedicated to differentiation on Monday.

We might look at a Probability and Statistics Concept MCQ on Wednesday.

On Wednesday and Thursday we will have a quick look at more general Taylor Series: not just near a=0, before doing a revision of partial differentiation.

Week 12

On Monday we will have yet another extra tutorial.

We will finish off Chapter 4 by looking at Error Analysis, including rounding error. We might have time on Thursday for an additional tutorial.

Week 13

The exam is on the morning of Friday Week 13 which means that I cannot give ye (Friday) tutorials in Week 13.

In the lecture slots (Monday, Wednesday, Thursday), I will go through Q. 1-2, 4 of Sample Paper I. Then I will answer any questions. If there are none I will help one-to-one. Usual class times and locations.

Any remaining time can be given over to tutorials, including questions about Q. 3 of Sample Papers I and II.

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.

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