No classes Friday 21 October

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.

We did a quick revision of integration and anti-differentiation, and then looked at the specific manipulation of completing the square.

Week 7

We will finish talking about completing the square and introduce integration by parts. Integration by parts comes from running the product rule of differentiation backwards.


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.
