Question 1:
Did you do ‘Module 2’ at school?

Please skip to Question 2.
If you did ‘Module 1’ or neither module at school, it is natural that you are unfamiliar with some of the questions in the Revision Exercise. We urge you to spend the next few weeks to do some self-study on ‘Module 2’. The questions in the Revision Exercise suggest which area you should focus on.

Question 2:
How much time on average does it take you to get the answer of one question in the revision exercise?

Congratulations. You have learnt school mathematics well and have not forgotten it after the summer vacation. We believe that you will encounter very few problems in our level-1000 courses, as long as you treat the coursework seriously.

You may proceed cautiously to do some self-study on multi-variable calculus, and perhaps beyond. A good textbook is Fitzpatrick’s Advanced Calculus.

You may also be interested in the challenges offered by the First-Year Honours Scheme in summer 2017. For detail, please visit the webpage: First-Year Mathematics Honours Scheme 2016

This will help you prepare for the level-2000 courses, probably in the second year.

We suggest you spend some time over the next weeks to recall what you might have forgotten in school mathematics; this may help you a lot when the first semester begins. (At which questions in the revision exercise do you struggle? This suggests where you need do revision.)

You will not encounter too many problems in our level-1000 courses, provided you remember that as a full-time student, your priority is to study.

We are concerned that one or both of the things below has happened:

  1. You have forgotten some important mathematics over the summer.
  2. You may have missed out altogether some important mathematics that your school teacher should have covered.

You urge you to do some serious revision on school mathematics over the next few weeks, and pay attention in the level-1000 courses; otherwise you will have a lot of struggles.
