You are advised to to spend seven hours per week on MATH6055. This should comprise of however long it takes to watch the lectures, and then the rest of time should be spent emailing questions, doing exercises, and catch-up/revision.

30% Assessment 2

The second 30% assessment takes place in Week 7 (week of 23 November), and covers equivalence relations and Chapter 2.

Week 5

Lectures

Schedule about an hour and 40 minutes to watch this 68 minutes of lectures.

Exercises

If you submitted Week 4 work on Canvas, read the feedback I gave you. If I recommend trying questions again, etc., do so.

Any and all submitted work will receive feedback.

This includes work submitted late, or work emailed to me. It is easiest for me however if work is:

  • Submitted on Canvas to Reading Week Exercises
  • Properly labelled (page number and question)

Try

  • p. 66, Determine which of Graphs 1-10 are trees.
  • p.70-73, Q. 1-6 (Eulerian Cycle = Eulerian Circuit).

If you have completed these exercises as well as the Week 4 exercises (all relevant for Assessment 2), you can look at the following:

  • p.79, Q. 1-4
  • p.82-83, Q. 1-4

Harder Exercises

  • p.79, Q. 5-6

You can (carefully) take photos of your work and submit to the Week 5 Exercises those images on Canvas before midnight Tuesday 17 November for feedback.

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 5

In Week 6 we will complete Chapter 3: Functions.

Zoom

The number of student submitting work for feedback has reduced from 24, to 19, to 12.

I am not going to lay on additional supports when so few students are engaging with the current learning opportunities.

Only nine students have had their say on this. If you want to have your say on this please fill in this survey (Links to an external site.)

One student has remarked that they would like some Zoom time for Q&A and I have done this for the first assessment.
