Things are definitely getting more difficult now folks. I am happy with the work a lot of ye are putting in but from now on everyone will have to work hard if they want to succeed. The good news is that Easter might provide extra time to put into Chapter 3.

Week 8


Two sections of Chapter 3:

If you are interested in a very “mathsy” approach to curves you can look at this. I have live video of some of the above material here.


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. Please feel free to ask me questions about the exercises. 

When you are finished with the material for Test 2 (Weeks 4-6) you can try:

  • p. 120, Q. 1-3
  • p. 128, Q. 1-5 [Note these exercises are interleaved – there are questions here from earlier sections in Chapter 2]

Additional Exercises: p. 121, Q. 4-7, p. 130, Q.5-7

Submit work for Canvas feedback by Sunday 21 March for video feedback after Monday 22 March.

Week 9

We will look at partial differentiation and its applications to error analysis.

Looking further ahead, a good revision of integration/antidifferentiation may be found here.
