Lecturer: Neil Strickland

- There will be a total of 15 problem sheets, marked out of 10. I will add the best 8 scores for each student over the whole year, to give a mark out of 80.
- There were a total of 12 quizzes, marked out of 4. I will add the best 5 scores for each student, to give a mark out of 20.
- I will add the above two scores and divide by 5 to give a coursework mark out of 20.
- There will be a final exam worth 80 marks, and the score will be added to the coursework score to give a mark out of 100. The exam will be open book, and designed to take about an hour and a half to do. As I do not have experience of setting open book exams, the calibration may not be very good, but I will do what I can, and obviously everyone will be in the same boat. In any case, although the exam will be designed to take 90 minutes, you will have a full 24 hours to complete it.

The plan for the last few weeks of the module is as follows. I will assume that before Easter, everyone watched the videos and/or read the notes up to the end of Section 17 (Chain complexes and homology).

Week 7 (20/4-24/4) | Section 18 | The chain complex of a simplicial complex |

Week 8 (27/4-1/5) | Section 19 | Chain homotopy |

Section 20 | The Snake Lemma | |

Week 9 (4/5-8/5) | Section 21 | The Mayer-Vietoris Theorem |

Section 22 | Subdivision | |

Week 10 (11/5-15/5) | Section 23 | Simplicial approximation |
