Topic Videos and Test Questions
All the test questions below were developed by Dr Martin Greenhow and his team at Brunel University London. (You can enter any name and any number like 123 for your student number. Also don’t need to give your email address, just enter a school where it asks for your email address.) You can do the test as many times as you wish as the numbers change every time you refresh the page.
There are also test questions from Newcastle University using Numbas and these were developed by Bill Foster and Christian Perfect.

In mathematics, there is an empty canvas before you, which can be filled without reference to external reality.
Mathematicians on Creativity by Peter Borwein
Hermann Schubert (1848 to 1911)
â€œâ€¦ the three positive characteristics that distinguish mathematical knowledge from other knowledge â€¦ may be briefly expressed as follows; first, mathematical knowledge bears more distinctly the imprint of truth on all its results than any other kind of knowledge; secondly, it is always a sure preliminary step to the attainment of other correct knowledge; thirdly, it has no need of other knowledge.â€
Hermann Schubert in ‘Mathematical Essays and Recreations’ 1898
This is a direct quote from ‘Mathematicians on Creativity by Peter Borwein
Test and Examination Papers in Linear Algebra
A good way to revise for examination is to try past examination papers. It is important that you attempt the paper without looking at the solutions. Even if you get stuck, it is better to have a go at the question and then at the end mark your paper. This is a much more effective way of learning because you will have an understanding of the material and now what is required of you. Of course, this is much harder but also more rewarding.
