I take the online test? See instructions here.
like my tutorial time. Can I swap? You can only swap if you have an actual clash, or can find
someone to swap with. Otherwise the numbers will go wrong.
I missed the lecture. Can you give me the notes? If you miss a lecture it's your responsibility to catch up. You
should first try and fill in the gaps in the printed notes yourself,
then ask a friend who was at the lecture. If you are stuck you can ask
in a tutorial or come to my office hours.
Do we have to learn the proofs for the
exam? You need to be able to
prove things in the exam. This doesn't necessarily mean learning proofs
off by heart - it's better to understand the proof and remember the
main idea of it, and then work out the proof logically yourself. People
who try to learn proofs off by heart often write down something very
similar to a proof, but crucially wrong.
When will the solutions to the past
exam papers become available? Not
The notes are too chatty for my liking
- can you make some less chatty ones for us? No.
then I applaud you, but you
should make them yourself.
When will the solutions to exercises
become available? They become available
every week after the tutorials, at the link below, where it says
"booklet of lecture notes, exercises and solutions".
Will the resit exam have the same
format as the normal exam? Yes. I hope you won't be resitting it.
etc Note that some of these links will not open until the relevant
time (eg homework solutions).
My YouTube channel "TheMathsters" has many videos relevant for
It can be found here. Relevant topics covered by videos so far include:
Sets: including logical statements
Functions: including injectivity and surjectivity
Numbers: including divisibility and Euclid's algorithm
I aim to keep adding videos, and will
accept requests for new videos!
The exam format changed this year as two modules (MAS105 and MAS175)
For a sample paper in the new format, please see Dr Marsh's page for
Semester 2 here.
Here are two past exam papers from MAS105.
Note that their relevance is rather limited as the format of the exam
has changed so much.
Also the material in the old MAS105 was not quite the same as Semester
1 of MAS114.
