Exam Papers (all years)

Here I record only those courses that I have taught in recent years. 

Until September 2002 I taught three courses, each to a joint B.A./B.Ed. group of students. The grade for each course was made up from 25% for in-term assessment (some combination of a Maple laboratory test and/or 1-hour written paper), and 75% for a final 3-hour written paper. 

In Jan 2006 I acquired the facility to convert Word documents to Adobe pdf format, and I attempted to convert all my current Word notes to pdf format, starting with my then 2nd/3rd year BA course The Real Numbers and Cantorian Set Theory.

My 1st year course - on Maple/Calculus/Analysis - was for a whole year, and was taught at two lectures per week, together with supporting Maple classes in  small groups initially, and larger ones later in the year.

My 2nd year course - on Number Theory - lasts for half a year, and was taught at three/four lectures per week, together with supporting Maple classes.

My 3rd year course - on Number Theory and Cryptography - lasts for half a year, and was taught at three/four lectures per week, together with supporting Maple classes. Students took a 2-hour practical Maple exam at the end of this course, and a 3-hour written paper. 

Since September 2004 I taught four courses, the above 2nd and 3rd year courses, together with two half-year long courses BA only courses, jointly offered to 2nd and 3rd year students, in the second half of the academic year, alternating year on year:

BA course #1:    The Real Numbers and Cantorian Set Theory 

BA course #2:    Challenging Mathematical Puzzles and Problems
