Well, away tomorrow after work, anyway.
Q9 now done, I think with a thorough explanation of what’s going on, and some good insight bought into the bargain.
Just need to photocopy it all in case it disappears in the post.
I have had a quick skim read of ML 4-7, leaving 8 aside for now. It looks great – just what I hoped for.
Also had a quick skim through the remaining NT units – more great stuff in there.
I am very motivated to study this material, which is about as good an outcome as possible.
Hope everyone gets the TMA2 result they’re hoping for.
NT3 and NT4 seemed reasonable to read.
The NT assignment questions seemed quite removed from the material.
But they got chipped away little by little and, I confess, I have had to spend more time on them than I think I should have. But I have solutions which appear to work, to the detriment of my sleeping pattern.
ML2 and 3 – just lol.
After the first read of ML2, I felt like I did when I was 13 years old and introduced to the laws of logs by our old maverick of a maths teacher, whose name I cannot remember. I remember thinking they were black magic. I thought the same of the wizardry in ML2.
I re-read and the just lol diluted to lol. I even have lol written in some of the margins.
Re-read number 2 (so read number 3) changed lol to hmm.
And re-read number 3 (read number 4) changed hmm to ok, I follow everything they’re doing but still feel as though I’d crumble on these in an exam. (Right now, I would, so I guess I need to structure many hours for revision). Consider this a note to future self 🙂
I did enjoy the uncountably infinite sets and coding mcgubbins though.
ML3 was less of a testicle ache as there was some computation to do. But then it descended into the depths of hell halfway through and I still (after four reads) find myself being poked by the fiery stick of mathematical hades.
To that end, Q1-8 of TMA2 are done and I still have Q9 to go and, maximally, three days to do it in, unless I choose to deliver my TMA in advance of its cut-off time by some as yet uninvented distance portal.
The logic side of M381 is, so far, nothing at all like I expected it to be. It looks like it turns a corner soon though. I shall be waiting for it as I’ve had enough of this particular street.
