Tutorial Split

I am not sure what is going on with Leonard’s classes but I will be present this Friday and next Friday for tutorials in A243L (11:00) and A213B (12:00).

Assessment 2 — Results

These have been sent to you. Comments to follow.

Week 11

We had a tutorial dedicated to differentiation on Monday.

We tried to look at a Probability and Statistics Word Cloud on Wednesday. It was a disaster as my computer froze… anyway:


My answer: when A and B are independent.


My answer: Always


My answer: bell-shaped curve.


A difficult one. My answer: Every probability/area under a bell curve can be calculated by transforming the area to a z curve, and calculating the area ‘there’.


My answer: To infer things about the population, e.g. the population mean.


My answer: An interval that we believe the population mean is in (with a certain confidence).

On Wednesday and Thursday we had a look at more general Taylor Series: not just near a=0, before doing a revision of partial differentiation, and linking at error analysis.

Week 12

On Monday we will finish off Chapter 4 by looking at Error Analysis. We will then have over two and a half hours of tutorial time for lectures, and another tutorial on Friday.

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.
