The second half of this course (weeks 7--12) will be given by
Dr Jonathan Fraser, who has his own course materials page.

## Course Text

All students are expected to acquire a copy of

## Week 6 Test

Here are the
solutions for the 2015
test, and some feedback on how it went will be available soon.
Your marks are now visible on My Manchester, and you can reclaim your
papers from your feedback supervisors.

## Problem Sheets

Problems for work in Feedback Classes are listed below. Answers
(including partial attempts!) should be submitted for
marking. Handing-in procedures and weekly deadlines should be
negotiated directly with supervisors, who may (or may not) wish to
focus on starred questions. Throughout this initial semester, marks
are awarded for effort, rather than accuracy.

**
Students are responsible for ensuring that they are properly prepared
by downloading these pages well in advance of the relevant week. The
time and place of each supervision class (with name of supervisor) will
be posted on the 1st year notice board at the start of the semester.

Week 6 is reading week.

Solutions will be posted after sufficient time has elapsed for the
problems to mature in students' minds!

## Examinations

The January 2015 examination will be of the same format as the previous three years; namely answer 5/5 in part A, and 3/5 in part B.

Here is the January 2014 examination paper, and here are the
solutions.

Here is my part of the
January 2015 paper, with solutions and my
feedback.

## Lecture Notes

Here are my handwritten lecture notes for each of the first five weeks, to be
posted at the end of the week. They approximate what I write on the board, but
will not be very helpful to students who have not attended. Everything they
contain is also in the course textbook, where thorough explanations are given;
the text should be thought of as the *fully detailed* course notes!
