The format of the exam and the arrangements for taking it will be as in 2020-21. You can find the 2020-21 exam and solutions below. There will be 7 questions of varying lengths, all compulsory. Some questions will ask you to state definitions or results from the notes, or reproduce proofs from the notes. However, most questions will instead ask you to solve problems, which will often require some creative modification of the methods explained in the notes. There is a separate document with more details.
|PDF download||HTML version|
Both versions of the notes contain links to various interactive demonstrations (described below) and videos.
The HTML version is new. It should be better than the PDF for viewing on a phone, or for reading with a screen reader. I would welcome any comments on either of these use cases.
I strongly recommend that you should attend lectures in person if possible. If you cannot do that, I primarily recommend that you work from the notes and embedded videos and demonstrations, but you may also want to look at the 2020-21 lecture recordings. There is also a lecture progress page where you can see which sections of the notes have been covered in lectures.
