You can collect your sheet 8 scripts and all other scripts that you have not taken already from the mathematics office (room 610, 25 Gordon street) early in the second term (January). Please e-mail me if you would like to know your grades or average.
Past Exam Papers
Solutions for past three years exam papers (department policy) are made available on the MATH 6103 Moodle page, click here. Note that the solutions are no longer made available at the maths office! Note that MATH6103 and MATH6500 exam papers are exactly the same, just the code on the front differs. You can find past exam papers online from the library website here.
- The ruberics are printed on top of the first page before question 1 in case you forget.
- The difference between MATH6103 and MATH6500: If you are doing MATH6103, you are sitting a non calculator paper. If you are sitting MATH6500, you are allowed to bring your calculator to the exam, not that it will help you.
- You are presented with 7 questions in the paper. Only the best 5 answers will count. You are encouraged to answer all 7 if you have time, if not, read the questions and pick the 5 questions you can answer best first!
- The exam is 2 hours long.
- There is no formula book or formula sheet. Make sure you revise properly!
Some good tips
- Get good rest the night before the exam and have a good meal to help you think clearly!
- Do not try to 'cram' anything half an hour or an hour before the exam. Relax, your subconcious knows more than your concious mind!
- Read all the exam questions properly before attempting to answer them. Explain your thoughts if you struggle to answer the question, you may gain some marks!
- Start every new question number (e.g. Q1, Q2 etc.) on a new page!
- Clearly label question attempted at the top of the page and on the front of the answer book
- Write clearly, starting a new equation on a new line, like we did on the board during lectures. Please don't try to cram everything within a few lines, ask for more paper if needed!
- Explain what you are doing where possible.
- Stay calm and good luck!
The revision class is scheduled for Wednesday 20th March 2013 at 1PM in Roberts 309.
In the meantime, if you have any questions feel free to e-mail me or if you would like to see me, send me an e-mail and we can arrange a time to meet.
Although I do not think you require a text book for the course, it can be a good idea to have one to refer to and try extra examples. Here are a few (in no particular order):
