COMP1C are required to purchase an academic manual for MATH6055. This contains all the lecture notes and exercises for the module. The lecture notes contain gaps that we fill in during class. I will have notes for you for the first week but after that you must purchase the manual: the sooner the better.

The manuals can be purchased from Reprographics\Copy Centre beside the Student Centre. Note that this is a cash-free area so you will need to put the appropriate amount of funds — €14.10 — on your student card (here). 

With all the materials (including worked examples, summaries, etc) it comes to 222 pages and provides a comprehensive resource for this module.

I will be writing in various colours, so maybe  a four colour pen would be useful.

Week 1

After listening to me go on about the importance of mathematics to your programme we started the first chapter on Sets and Relations by looking at some number sets. We saw something new with the concept of the power set of a set.

Week 2

In Week 3 we will look at the Laws of Sets and move onto Cartesian Products and Relations.
