Handouts and other documents

Course work

Regular question sheets will be issued. With the exception of the (optional) prize problems, solutions should be handed in to me at the appointed time (shown on each sheet) for marking. The assignments form an essential part of the learning process but do not form part of your formal assessment. The question sheets will be available here as they are issued. Coursework is due in at the end of the Thursday lecture in Teaching Weeks 2, 4, 6, 8 and 10. (Note here that Teaching Week 1 of Autumn Semester is the second week of term.)

G13MTS Assessment

Assessment will be by means of a two and a half hour examination in January. There will be five questions, and your best four answers will count. If you answer four of the questions perfectly, then you will obtain full marks. Please note that no calculators will be permitted in the examination. Should a resit examination be required in August/September it will take the same form as above (five questions, best four answers count, no calculators).
You may find it useful to look at the exam papers for G13MTS from previous years, but note that the syllabus has changed this year. Nevertheless, the style of question is likely to be similar to those in the exams in the years when Dr Feinstein previously taught G13MTS: 1997-8, 1998-9, 1999-2000 and 2003-4. Please note that the format of the exam changed to its current form (best four questions from five) between 2000 and 2003
