The manuals are available in the Copy Centre (at a cost of €15). In my opinion the sooner ye purchase them the better, but ye will certainly need them by Week 4.


The official line is that BioEng2A have their tutorial, BioEng2B have their tutorial, and SEE2 have a tutorial, but it is too big, so “The SEE2 excess go to (the) BioEng2B (tutorial)”. I think we have a better set up by allowing all students attend whatever tutorial they want:

  • Wednesday 12 pm in B180 (the official SEE2 tutorial slot),
  • Wednesday 3 pm in B260 (the official BioEng2A slot)
  • Friday 1 pm in B260 (the official BioEng2B + “SEE2 excess” slot)

I think SEE2 students can make all three and BioEng2 students can make two every week, and three some weeks. A number of students have asked can they attend more than one tutorial a week. As long as I can keep getting around to everyone to give one-to-one teaching I am happy with students attending more than one tutorial.

If it happens that the above plan doesn’t work, and some tutorial(s) is too big, I will have to think again.

The most important thing in your MATH6040 world is to attend tutorials regularly.

Test 1

The test will be the Tuesday evening, 11 October, of Week 5. See Canvas (MATH6040 —> Assignments) for further details.

Week 2

In Week 2 we spoke about vector products: the dot product and the vector product.

Week 3

In Week 3 we will Chapter 1, and the material for Test 1, by talking at the applications of vectors to work and moments

Test 2

Test 2 is provisionally booked for the Tuesday of Week 12:

06/12/202218.00-19.00MATH6040Technological Maths 20155A – C

However, this is too late, it should be Week 11, but the Melbourn Hall is provisionally unavailable in Week 11.

When the timetable system is back up and running again I will try and book a large IT room for this test, and I will also try and wing us into the Melbourn for 29 November.

So Test 2 is 99% going to be Tuesday 29 November but just in case I have booked the Melbourn for 6 December. This will be finalised by Week 9.
