Test 1 – Results

Have been emailed to you,

Week 6

We finished Chapter 2 by looking at Determinants and Cramer’s Rule. Ye did an example in class, video here: Cramer’s Rule Example

The new material was recorded here.

We had about 90 minutes of tutorial time looking at Chapter 2.


How much time you put into homework is up to you: of course the more time you put in the better but we all have competing interests. I strongly recommend that you do some exercises every week. Please feel free to ask me questions about the exercises via email, or even better on this webpage.

I would invite you to look at the following exercises:

  • P. 73, Q. 1-4,
  • P. 77, Q. 2
  • P. 80, Q. 1-3
  • P. 86, Q. 1-4
  • P. 92, Q. 1-3
  • p. 102, Q. 1-6


  • P. 73, Q. 5
  • P. 80, Q. 5


  • P. 77, Q. 1
  • P. 80, Q. 4
  • P. 86, Q. 5-6
  • P. 102, Q. 7-10

In addition, you can hand up your work in class and I will have it correct for the week after.

Week 7

In Week 7 we will do a matrices Concept MCQ and then do a quick revision of differentiation.  If you want to look ahead here are two videos:

Then we will look at Parametric Differentiation.


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 want to try and do homework (see below) regularly.

Tuesday 17 March 2020, Week 8

This class is postponed to the same time and room, but Wednesday 18 March.

Test 2

Test 2, worth 15% and based on Chapter 3, will probably take place Week 11.


Please feel free to ask me questions about the exercises via email or even better on this webpage.

Academic Learning Centre

If you are a little worried about your maths this semester, perhaps after the Diagnostic Test or in general, I would just like to remind you about the Academic Learning Centre. Next week, some students will receive emails detailing areas of maths that they should brush up on. The timetable is here: there is some availability after 17:00 on Mondays and Tuesdays.
