This page contains information, electronic copies of the handouts, and data sets for the MATH1712 module.

The following links provide pdf copies of the handouts from the lectures.

- homework 1 (deadline 12th Feb), solutions, and tutorial notes
- first practical (deadline 19th Feb)
- homework 2 (deadline 26th Feb), tutorial notes
- homework 3 (deadline 11th Mar)
