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% Test 2

The second 30% assessment takes place 6 pm Wednesday 25 November, and covers equivalence relations and Chapter 2. Relevant are the Week 3, 4 and 5 announcements on Canvas. Students who have been working on this material are in a good position and should be able to watch the Chapter 3 lectures while those who have not been working (i.e. doing and submitting exercises) are probably going to have to work on the Weeks 3-5 exercises.

Chapters 3 to 5 will be assessed in the final assessment in Week 10/11.

Zoom for Test 2

There will be two Zoom tutorials for Test 2 in Week 7:

  • Monday 23 November, 14:00
  • Tuesday 24 November, 14:00

The links have been sent via Canvas Mail. Students are invited to attend one or both tutorials where I will be answering student questions. The tutorials will be recorded.

Week 7


Schedule about two hours and 15 minutes to watch this hour and a half of lectures.


Any and all submitted work will receive feedback.

Make sure all work is properly labelled with page and question number. For the Week 7 exercises, the feedback will be given Wednesday 2 December.

If you want to or need to go back on previous exercises feel free to submit to whatever Weekly Exercises assignment is open on Canvas, but drop me an email when you do (unless you can wait until the day after the due date).

If you are up on everything thus far (and thus prepared for Test 2, try). Note there are not so many hints here as (most) of the answers are in the manual.

  • p.107, Q. 1-2
  • p.111 (complete the table up top)
  • p.114-15, Q.1-3
  • p.117-119, Q. 1-9.

Week 8

In Week 7 we will look at exponents and (maybe) logs.
