No classes Friday 21 October

The Friday 21 October lecture in B188 is cancelled (not postponed).

The BioEng2B tutorial at 13:00 on Friday 21 October is brought forward to 13:00 on Tuesday 18 October in B240.

Test 1

Results are released with remarks in a Canvas announcement.

Week 5

We finished on matrices, with Cramer’s Rule. In the second Tuesday lecture we had some tutorial time and on Friday we had Concept MCQ on Matrices before doing some revision of integration.

Tutorial time was spent looking at Chapter 2, especially Cramer’s Rule.

Week 6

For most students, Chapters 1 and 2 are easier, but Chapter 3 is the most important part of MATH6040 for third year, so it will have a big focus.


In Week 7 we will add two further techniques of integration to your arsenal. In Week 8 we will look at some applications. We will start Chapter 4 in Week 9, and a sample test for Test 2, on Chapter 3, will appear in Week 9.


The most important thing in your MATH6040 world is to attend tutorials regularly. See here for more, including times and venues.


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

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.

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.
