It is my advice to try and find 7 hours per week for MATH6040, and spend that time on it, working your way down through the learning in this announcement.

Keep in mind at all times:

“Any and all work, submitted at any time, will receive feedback.”

“Do not hesitate to contact me with questions at any time. My usual modus operandi is to answer all queries in the morning but sometimes I may respond sooner.”

Week 11

Matrices Test

Great job everyone.

Revision for Differentiation Test

You must now start thinking about the Differentiation Test. As outlined in an announcement:

PROVISIONAL 60 minute, 25% Further Differentiation Test, 19:30 Tuesday 28 April 2020

This test will examine Chapter 3. A Summer 2020 paper was written, and this test will comprise of Q. 3 from that exam. The question comprises 25% of that exam, and that translates to 30 minutes of exam time. I will extend this to 45 minutes and allow 15 minutes to upload. 

If you have not already done so, you should watch the Week 8 and Week 9 lectures, and also look at the video for the derivative of inverse sine. Also here is video of me doing the Differentiation exam question on p. 224-224 of the manual.

If you have not done so already, you are advised to do Differentiation exercises in the manual. These can be found on p. 111, 123, 128, 136, 151, 157; and you will want to be comfortable with all the material in the Chapter Summary on p.160-1.

Any revision on differentiation may be submitted on Canvas to Differentiation Revision Exercises 1 by Sunday 19 April, or Differentiation Revision Exercises II by Saturday 25 April.

If possible, submit the images as a single pdf file. To do this, select all the images in a folder, right-click and press print. It will say something like How do you want to print your pictures? Press (Microsoft?) Print to PDF. If possible choose an orientation that has all the images in portrait.

Further exercises may be found under the CIT Exam Papers portal, under MATH6040, under MATH.

Catch Up

If you are prepared for the Differentiation assessment, my recommendation is do as much catch up as you can on Week 10, Easter Week 1, and Easter Week 2. The Easter Week 2 exercises may be submitted up to 22 April, and any work other work you do can be submitted via Canvas email.

If possible, submit the images as a single pdf file. To do this, select all the images in a folder, right-click and press print. It will say something like How do you want to print your pictures? Press (Microsoft?) Print to PDF. If possible choose an orientation that has all the images in portrait.

Week 12 to 3 May

Provisionally, the 25% Differentiation Assessment will take place on Tuesday evening.

If you have any further questions, I am answering emails seven days a week. Email before midnight Monday 27 April to be guaranteed a response Tuesday 28 April. I cannot guarantee that I answer emails sent on Tuesday (although of course I will try).

After this you will be invited to catch up on integration (Week 10, Week Easter 1, Week Easter 2). Here is video based on Q. 4, on p.226 of your manual.

Week 13 to 10 May

Focus on integration.

Week 14 to 17 May

Provisionally, the 25% Integration Assessment will take place Tuesday evening 12 May. After this you will be invited to do revision on Vectors. Here is a video based on Q. 1, on p.222 of your manual.

Week 15 to 24 May

Provisionally, the 10% Vectors Assessment will take place Tuesday evening 19 May.
