  • Booked on to M337 Complex Analysis
    on Aug 2, 2014
    After passing my two most recent exams with much better marks than I ever hoped for, I have decided to hit the big red button and go for the nuclear option for my next course - Complex Analysis M337 with the Open University. I think that this (apart...
  • Thank the Lord. I Passed!
    on Jul 24, 2014
    What a blogging hiatus, that has just been. Four months...  few! Four months seems an age; but I have remained silent during this time,  for two main reasons. Firstly, I found myself so deep into studying and really struggling for time to even...
  • Exam Revision - or - The Lack of it...
    on Mar 5, 2014
    Hmm, I really am struggling with the workload on these two courses.  I just feel like I am glossing over the books, in order to answer the TMA's - with no real hope of a deep understanding of the material at hand. Logic is fairly straightforward,...
  • TMA02 Results
    on Feb 8, 2014
    Okay,  I did much better than I had imagined.  I really felt that I had made a meal of the number theory paper; but after a last ditched attempt at two of the questions that I messed up; it all came good in the end. So, here are the results: Numb...
  • TMA's away, on time!
    on Feb 3, 2014
    Just a quicky! Both TMA's for M381 and M336 have now been completed and chucked in the post.  They arrived on the cut off date, with my tutor, so I await the results... The Number Theory TMA was a nightmare and I spent far to much time on it.  Ha...
  • 3yrs - Almost 200 Blog Posts - KBO
    on Jan 18, 2014
    Well, after a fast and furious Christmas where my studying actually stepped up a gear, to try and catch up; I have finally, almost got back to where I should be in my studies of groups and number theory. I have just this minute, put the finishing to...
  • TMA01 results in (Groups and Geometry).
    on Dec 17, 2013
    I just received back my results today for M336.  I scored 82% on this particular piece, which considering I messed up an entire question, probably was a bit of a let off! In brief, my geometry scored almost full marks apart from a few accuracy slip...
  • Relentless Studying - Fatigue - Mission Creep
    on Dec 11, 2013
    I feel absolutely exhausted this week. My work schedule combined with a study schedule that sees me studying for 3hrs before work in the morning, three hours after work and then 8hrs on all of my days off, is the lengths I am having to go to, just t...
  • TMA01 Results (Number Theory and Logic)
    on Dec 7, 2013
    Well, I received my results today for my first piece of coursework on this fiendishly difficult mathematics module. I am pleased to say that I scored 95% for the whole paper.  I managed to pick up 100% of the marks for the NUmber Theory section, bu...
  • A Welcome Group Theory Interlude
    on Nov 20, 2013
    I'm posting rather than studying at the moment.  Procrastination rules... I have to say that the fourth book of the Mathematics module Groups and Geometry with the OU, is a lovely rehash of some safe, comforting basic group theory.  I never though...
