Additional information

The course program, how we work on the course, and the contents of the math course, can be found in the Mathematics compendium (Part 1) which can be downloaded from Itslearning. Mathlab will be held four times: you are welcome to come ask questions, work on the exercises, and get help. The timetable is available in the Mathematics compendium (part 1). The Statistics compendium (Part II) will be available on Itslearning when the statistics part of the course begins. Attendance on the lectures and practice exams is warmly recommended - and for many a necessity for passing the course - but not mandatory.
