Course MaterialsPlease let me know if you need materials in a different format because of a disability.
- Notes (with gaps to complete in lectures):
- Exercises: Sheet 0 - Sheet 1 (these will also be given out in lectures, Sheet n usually on or before Monday Week n)
- Solutions: coming soon!
- Syllabus and Recommended Textbooks: see the MATH10202 Unit Specification
Video podcasts of lectures are available, but these are intended as an additional resource and not a core part of the course or a substitute for attendance at lectures. The format of the lectures will be tailored to those present in the room, not to the recording, and I make no guarantees about the quality or reliability of the recordings. If you do wish to use the recordings they can be found here.
Timetable / Support
We have four hours of lectures per week: Monday 11:00-13:00 and Wednesday 13:00-15:00. All lectures will be in Chemistry G.51 and will have a short break in (approximately) the middle.
In addition to lectures you will have a one-hour Feedback Supervision every week, on either Tuesday or Wednesday - see your personal timetable in the Student Portal, or if you know your supervision group number you can work it out from this timetable. The supervisions are your main opportunity for support and feedback on your work, and attendance is compulsory. The supervisions in Week n will look mainly at Exercise Sheet n-1; you should arrive at the supervision having looked at all exercises on the sheet, and bring a copy of the sheet with you.You are also welcome to speak to me after any lecture, to contact me with any queries, or to come along to my weekly office hour. My office hour in Semester 2 of 2018-19 is generally 11:30-12:30 on Wednesdays during teaching weeks; it may sometimes be necessary to vary this - any changes will be announced here, so please check before making a special journey. My office is room 2.137 in the Alan Turing Building. (Outside my office hour, I'm afraid other responsibilities mean that I can usually only see students by appointment.)
