Well that took a lot of work. Computing all the cayley tables took a fair while. I found quite a lot of the group theory stuff pretty interesting but could just not get my head around Permutation Conjugation, so that questions a bit of a wing and a prayer for some marks. Don’t think I’ve done as well as TMA01, but it should rate a pass.
Overall I’ve had mixed feelings about GTA. Groups and sets are obviously very useful and a huge topic, but at the same time it’s not always obvious exactly where things are going. Also found the reliance on Audio materials for some of the key assessed bits was very annoying. I’d have preferred a couple more concrete examples for conjugation for example.
I’ve started reading through the material for Linear Algebra and it’s looking more like my sort of thing, though a lot of it does look like it’ll be revision from MS221 with just some extra depth. Hopefully I can pick up some more slack on this one as I’m a little too close to the timetable for my liking (like to have a couple of weeks in hand just in case any real life incidents crop up).
