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.
