Week 8

As you will see below there is a lot of lecture material. It might be wise to break your learning into Exponents and Logarithms, and spend 3.5 hours on each. Start the clock running on Exponents, after you watch those lectures spend the rest of the 3.5 hours doing exercises on them, and then repeat the trick with logs.

That would be ideal but the good news is that we have all but finished the lecture material, there won’t be too many lecture videos in Week 9, there will be none in Week 10, and so there will be scope to catch up. However you will be better off keeping up as you will need time to revise Chapter 3 Functions also.

You can always submit whatever work you want to whatever is open on Canvas at the time (but please label properly with page and question number).

Week 9

We will complete the mini-chapter on examples of functions. You will spend the rest of the time revising Chapters 3 and 4 (i.e. doing exercises).

Week 10

There will be feedback on submitted exercises Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.

I plan that we will have a number of Zoom tutorials (these are provisional):

  • Tuesday 14:00
  • Tuesday 15:00 C-X only
  • Wednesday 12:00 C-Y only
  • Thursday 12:00

There is a small chance that we will also have Monday 14:00 Zoom but will not know until closer to the day.

Week 11

The final, 40% Test 3 on Functions and Algebra will take place (provisionally) at 18:00-19:30 (perhaps with additional upload time) on Monday 21 December. There will be no more feedback on submitted exercises but there might be a 14:00 Zoom before the final Test.

30% Test 2 – Results

My aim would be to have these for you before Wednesday 9 December.
