Transposition Project – Survey

With regard to TRANSPOSITION (pages 86-97 of the manual), please fill out this survey.

Transposition Project – Part II

October 14 you took a quiz as part of the Transposition Project that the Mathematics Department is undertaking in an effort to improve our teaching.

You will have another 15 minute quiz on Monday.

If you do not have an internet ready device, or did not do the first quiz, you may leave class early.

Thank you again for your participation.

Test 2

Test 2, worth 15% of your final grade, based on Chapter 3: Algebra, and will take place on Tuesday 3 December in the usual lecture venue of D160.

The sample is to give you an idea of the length of the test. You know from Test 1 the layout (i.e. you write your answers on the paper). You will be allowed use a calculator for all questions.

I strongly advise you that, for those who might have done poorly, or not particularly well, in Test 1, attending tutorials alone will not be sufficient preparation for this test, and you will have to devote extra time outside classes to study aka do exercises.

Exercises on Canvas

If you go into Canvas, and go into MATH6055 and the ‘Algebra’ unit, you might see online practise questions for Test 2.

Week 10

We worked with logarithms and started a quick look at Examples of Functions (which we needed Algebra to talk about).

Week 11

On Monday we will finish the Examples of Functions mini-chapter before starting the final chapter, the easy chapter, on Network (Graph) Theory.

Week 12

We will finish our study of Graph Theory by looking at Eulerian graphsHamiltonian graphs, and Dirac’s Theorem.

The Test is on Tuesday.

Week 13

We will have two review lectures on Monday and Tuesday in the usual times and venues and tutorials as normal.

We will go through the MATH6055 Winter 2018 paper, and then I will answer your questions if there are any. If there are none I will help one-to-one. Usual class times and locations.

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.

Study

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.
