1. ### Delay Discrete Maths until 3rd year?

I would highly not recommend delaying it unless there is a reason to

Bump
3. ### Stationery Recommendations?

I recommend Muji's \$1.50 pens. They are really solid, I use the 0.38mm ones.
4. ### The Code Marathon.

The naive solution most 1917 student's would give would probably be sort it then take the median as you are doing. Just bare in mind in computing it is never the first solution that comes in mind that is the most efficient, you will learn this if you take further comp courses in unsw.
5. ### The Code Marathon.

That's understandable sorting is 2nd semester work. This is a solution, however this isn't the optimal one.
6. ### The Code Marathon.

You're solution assumes the middle elements (averaged) is the median, this is not the median.
7. ### The Code Marathon.

The array is unsorted, the median is not simply the average of two middle numbers.
8. ### The Code Marathon.

The optimal solution to Q2 requires knowledge of data structures and algos, usually a semester 2 class. But most of you guys are in 1st year 1st sem.
9. ### The Code Marathon.

1. Given a linked list, find the k-th element from the end, using only ONE single pass. For example, 1->2->3->4->5->X, the 0th element from the end is 5, 1st element from the end is 4 etc.
10. ### Questions about COMP2041 Software Construction

It's one of the easier COMP subjects and one of the most useful. The assignments will be a shell-perl/shell/python compiler that translates say perl -> python (or some other permutation). The second assignment is usually a website, when I took the course we did a website like "twitter" You'll...
11. ### First Year Mathematics A (Differentiation & Linear Algebra)

Re: MATH1131 help thread Have you had 1151 exam yet? How was it?
12. ### First Year Mathematics A (Differentiation & Linear Algebra)

Re: MATH1131 help thread Even in that case it's still better to do 1917 if you're concerned about marks. It's always better to do higher versions of any course at Uni if you're gunning for a solid mark.
13. ### First Year Mathematics A (Differentiation & Linear Algebra)

Re: MATH1131 help thread You're missing out on a wonderful way to see things leehuan is 1917 The courses is probably one of the most useful first year courses in UNSW.
14. ### First Year Mathematics A (Differentiation & Linear Algebra)

Re: MATH1131 help thread 1917 final exam is actually pretty hard if you're starting out on your first language.
15. ### First Year Mathematics A (Differentiation & Linear Algebra)

Re: MATH1131 help thread ^ Technically there is a minimum mark for MATH for higher version courses in second year.

17. ### First Year Mathematics A (Differentiation & Linear Algebra)

Re: MATH1131 help thread I think they have a certain mark requirement for your degree don't they from memory?
18. ### First Year Mathematics A (Differentiation & Linear Algebra)

Re: MATH1131 help thread If you need more past papers, not sure how long your book goes up to, I take the course many many years ago, I can scoop up some older 08-09-10 ones possibly if you need extra practice.
19. ### First Year Mathematics A (Differentiation & Linear Algebra)

Re: MATH1131 help thread COMP1917 student, should be having no trouble wif Maple!!
