Students can find their tutorial groups at the tutorials web page.

- Just drop in to J12 Hicks, or book an appointment. I'm generally fairly free on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesday and Friday afternoons, but welcome any students. You can email me to check whether I'm available, or with any questions.

Printed lecture notes will also be placed on MOLE, which will also contain scans of the handwritten lecture notes.

Problems and solutinos will be put on MOLE.

**General information**:

- There will be six problem classes in Weeks 1, 3, 5, 7, 9 and 11.
- Each Problems Class after Week 1 will have a short multiple choice quiz testing basic knowledge and understanding of material covered in the preceding two weeks.
- The quiz will be marked as a Pass or a Fail. To obtain a Pass, you will need to get at least 60% of the questions correct. Each pass counts as 1 mark out of 60 towards overall assessment.

The course was rewritten completely in 2015–2016; prior to this, the course was essentially taught as two separate 10-credit chunks, but with a single exam. The material has been merged into (hopefully) a more unified whole. Older papers are available online; the material is very similar, and so it is likely that many questions from past papers will be suitable practice questions for this year also.

Some older papers and solutions are on MOLE.
