Semester 2 Course Information
A good grasp of Semester 1 material is essential to understanding the module in Semester 2. This semester we will continue the study of analysis of functions of one variable, building on what you saw in Semester 1. Later on we will generalise to the study of functions of several variables.
Here is a summary of the material we will cover in semester 2, with a rough indication of how many lectures will be devoted to each topic.
TestThere was an in-class test in the Thursday lecture of week 1.
Important comment: The test questions are comparable to the "easy marks" part of the exam; you need to be getting pretty much all of these marks to pass the exam.
Lecture notesHere are the lecture notes for the whole of the semester. (Updated version 8 May 2017 - a couple of typos corrected since version of 3 April.)
This version contains the statements of definitions and results, but not proofs or solutions to examples. You are expected to attend the lectures and take your own notes of the proofs and the solutions to examples. (I expect to supply some version of this material in typed form eventually, but this is unlikely to contain everything that I explain in the lectures. In particular, pictures and graphs are important to aid understanding of the material. I expect to draw lots of these in lectures, but not to produce a printed version of them.)
Here is a fuller version of the lecture notes, with solutions to examples and proofs.
ExercisesHere is the complete set of exercises for the semester. (Version of 3 April 2017 - some typos corrected.)
These take place on Tuesdays (at 11 or 2) in weeks 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 and 12.
Week 2 class: we'll focus on the following problems: Chapter 1, Qs 1, 3, 4, 5, 6.
Week 4 class: we will go through Q2(b) from the test and then focus on Chapter 2, Qs 5, 3 4(a), (b), (d), 6.
Week 6 class: Chapter 3, Qs 3, 4 and 6.
Week 8 class: Chapter 3, Qs 11, 13. Chapter 4, Q1.
Week 10 class: Chapter 5, Q2, 5, 6, 8 (9, 11 if time).
Week 12 class: Chapter 6, Q3, 4, 5, 7.
Homework scheduleDetails of questions set and hand-in arrangements will appear here as the module progresses.
Homework 5 from semester 1 was Qs 83, 84, 88, 91 and 98. This was due in at the week 2 tutorials.
Homework 1 for this semester was Chapter 1, Qs 7, 8 and 9 and Chapter 2, Question 2. This was due in at the week 4 tutorials.
Homework 2 for this semester is Chapter 2, Qs 7 and 12 and Chapter 3, Q2. This is due in at the week 6 tutorials.
Homework 3: Chapter 3, Q5(a),(b), Q7 and Q10. This is due in at the week 8 tutorials.
Homework 4: Chapter 4, Qs 2,3, Chapter 5, Q1. This is due in at the week 10 tutorials.
No further homework for marking, but I suggest looking at Chapter 5 Q7, Chapter 6, Q1 and Q2 before the week 12 tutorials.
