No MATH6040 classes Friday 18 November (Week 9)

The Friday lecture will be preponed to Monday 14 November at 13:00 in B190. I appreciate this is not a good slot for all students, so I will point towards a video lecture that can partially substitute for it.

The Friday tutorial will be moved to Tuesday 15 November at 13:00 in B240.

Week 7

We finished talking about completing the square and introduced integration by parts. Integration by parts comes from running the product rule of differentiation backwards. We also looked at applications to work.

Week 8

We will look at more applications of integration.


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.
