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.

Test 2

Test 2 is booked for the Tuesday of Week 11:

29/11/202218.00-19.00MATH6040Technological Maths 20155A – C

See Canvas —> MATH6055 —> Assignments, for more information, including sample tests (although note all those questions can be found in the Chapter 3 exerices).

Week 8

We will look at more applications of integration, to centroids and centres of gravity. We started Chapter 4 with a revision class on differentiation.

Week 9

We will drive into Chapter 4, talking first about transforms, and then functions of several variables and partial differentiation. We should be able to look at applications of partial differentiation to error analysis.

The tutorials will be focused on Chapter 3. We might get some tutorial time on Chapter 4 in lectures.


We will complete Chapter 4 over Weeks 10 and 11. The tutorials in Week 11 will be focused on Chapter 3/Test 2, but Week 11 and possibly Week 12 will be focused on Chapter 4. Week 12 lectures will be revision.


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