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
