Semester 1 Course InformationAssessment
90% by exam at the end of Semester 2, 10% is based on coursework, 5% for each semester.
In each semester, there
will be one mark for handing in a
reasonable attempt at each of the four homeworks and one mark for passing a midterm online test. Here
"reasonable attempt" means that your
work, in the judgement of the marker, shows that you have engaged
seriously with the questions.
The semester 1 midterm online test is now closed.
Lecture notes
Here are the outline lecture notes for semester 1.
This version does not include the proofs or solutions to
examples. This material will be presented on blackboards in the lectures. I plan to make a full
version of the notes
covering this material available, chapter by chapter as we finish them.
So you will have a full set towards the end of the semester.
Note, however, that I expect to draw lots of graphs and diagrams on the blackboards in the lectures
and many of these will not be the notes. You are strongly encouraged to attend lectures and take
your own notes of the blackboard material, especially the graphs and diagrams.
Full notes up to the end of Section 2.4 . (This is where we are up to by Reading Week.)
Additional notes on "Characterising completeness of the real number line" (nonexaminable).
