Example Sheets

Such material as is available for some specific DPMMS courses (example sheets, lecture notes and so on) has been gathered here. Some courses have more material, others less.

Example sheets (and other info) for courses offered by DAMTP appear on the DAMTP example sheet page.

To post example sheets on these pages please email pdf file to giving course name and Tripos part in the subject line.

Part IA

Courses in Part IA of the Mathematical Tripos on the Faculty web site.

Part IB

Courses in Part IB of the Mathematical Tripos on the Faculty web site.

*from 2019 courses combined to form Analysis and Topology.

Part II

Courses in Part II of the Mathematical Tripos on the Faculty web site.

Part III (MMath/MASt)

Not all DPMMS Part III courses have a page. The courses change significantly from year to year, so do not expect information from previous years to be relevant. 

Details about current lecture courses can be found in the Guide to Courses in Part III of the Mathematical Tripos

Current students can also access information via the Part III Academic Support Moodle
