Week 12 In class test
Each project report is worth 15%.
There will be a marks for the correctness of the mathematics, marks for the quality and clarity of presentation and a group mark.
The group mark is 1/4 average mark for your group (only for those students who have attended the classes).
Group presentation is worth 5%.
In class test is worth 35%.
For the projects and presentation you’ll be in group with 5 or 6 other students.
Group times and rooms are given on the MATH10001 website.
You’ll be working with a postgraduate facilitator.
Working effectively with other people is a very useful skill.
There are several packages thatcan be used to produce mathematical text.
Most professional mathematicians use LaTeX. To find out more see the online course at
Or you can use Microsoft Word. This has an in-built Equation Editor that can be used to construct mathematical expressions. See the MATH10001 website for more details.

to other cases?
x2 + y2 = z2 ?
What about x3 + y3 = z3 ?
Some problems that are very easy to state still haven’t been solved.
Every even number greater than 2 can be written as the sum of two primes.
4=2+2, 6=3+3, 8=3+5, 10=5+5, 12 = 5+7, 14=7+7, 16=3+13, …
