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 9

We drove into Chapter 4, talking first about transforms, and then functions of several variables and partial differentiation. We started talking about at applications of partial differentiation to error analysis.

The tutorials were focused on Chapter 3 aka Test 2. There was some Chapter 4 tutorial time in lectures.

Week 10

We will finish looking at applications of partial differentiation to error analysis. Then we will look at parametric differentiation.

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

Week 11

We will hopefully finish Chapter 4 by looking at Related Rates and Implicit Differentiation.

The tutorials will be focused on Chapter 4.

Week 12

We will finish the manual and then start looking at the Winter 2021 paper for revision. It is in the back of the manual.

Students will receive one-to-one help in tutorial, but it will be up to students to decide what they want to look at; be it Vectors, Matrices, or Further Differentiation.


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