MAS114 (Numbers and Groups), Semester 1

Welcome to MAS114! Here’s some official information.

If you have questions, please email me.


80% of this module mark will be assessed by a single exam at the end of the year (May or June). 20% will be the online tests (see below for details).

You need to pass both to pass the module!

Online tests

These can be found at this link.

They’re released weekly on Tuesday at 11am, due in the following Monday at 11am.

Lecture materials so far

I am making online video lectures available. These are from last year (on Kaltura), and so some things will not coincide perfectly with this year, including the gaps between the lectures, and the length of my hair.

Class sheets so far

These sheets are what you will work on in the tutorial classes (on Thursdays or Fridays, depending which group you’re in).

Most tutorial classes are in person, but there is an online one (on Thursday at 4pm) for people unable to make it to Sheffield, on Blackboard.

Homework exercises, and solutions so far

These files contain the homeworks: hand them in (in person, or by whatever other arrangement your class tutor prefers) at your tutorial each week (starting in week 2). These are an important part of learning how to write mathematics! Please hand in handwritten work if you can; please only type it up if there is no alternative.

You’re welcome to do the challenge problem each week, but are not expected to! Hand in the challenge problem on a separate sheet of paper. Here’s the homework:
