No lecture on the Friday of week 12.

Lecture notes

Material will be posted here as the course progresses. If you have any questions regarding the online notes please contact me.

Problem sheets

Material will be posted here as the course progresses. You are expected to attempt ALL questions, not just the starred ones. The star is to indicate which questions will fit into a one-hour small-group supervision class discussion.

Solution sheets

Material will be posted here as the course progresses.


The coursework is now available on the `Blackboard' page for this course, as an online multiple-choice quiz. There are 7 questions, giving a total of 10 marks, which contribute 5 percent to the final mark of this course. It must be completed within 60 minutes of starting the test and cannot be returned to later. There is no negative marking. The test must be completed by 5pm on 18th April.

The results are available via blackboard and the questions will be discussed in the Tuesday class of week 12.


Weekly feedback is provided via the Supervision Feedback classes. It is important that you engage with the weekly problems material and these classes. The coursework in-class test also has (online) feedback available once the test deadline has passed, the content will also be discussed in one of the lectures for additional feedback.

Getting started

This course makes heavy use of vectors, solution of ordinary differential equations and complex numbers. You will struggle to pass this basic material, all of the content of MATH10121 (Calculus and Vectors), and the first half of MATH10222.
You do not need to have done any `mechanics' courses before taking this part of MATH10222, this course is quite different from the usual A-level mechanics material. You do not need to buy a textbook for this course.

Getting help

All students have small-group feedback classes for this class. As a first point of contact, ask your supervisor for help with any problem sheets or concepts. If you cannot resolve your problem in this way, feel free to discuss it with me at the end of a lecture, email me for an appointment, or come along to my office hour during the semester.
