### M208 - TMA03 now in draft

M208 - TMA03 has entered draft status which means that all six questions have been answered, all graphics done, all LaTeX done. What remains to be done are three full QA cycles.

P.S. How would you mark this?
If you have read a previous post about marking I am sure you thought I am paranoid with regards to receiving marks, I wrote something like "as low as possible on the tutor's interpretation band". But let me give you an example. Modified, of course. But you'll get the idea. Suppose we have a set with elements V = {1,2,3}. A function f: V->N has been defined as follows: v maps-to v^2. The question is give the function values of the elements of V. Answer: {1,4,9}. Is this answer correct? Well, I got 0 marks ( for similar question of course ). My question is: do you agree / disagree with the tutor? Or is it perhaps fair to give 25%, 75%, 90%, 99%? Mark it at M208 level. Or is the answer bloody well right? - What do you think? - I think you will be very surprised by the tutor's opinion.

Update.
{1,4,9} is a set. In a set the items have no order. So answer should be {1^2=1,2^2=4,3^2=9}. Right?

Mathematics: is it the fabric of MEST?
This is my voyage
My continuous mission
To uncover hidden structures
To create new theorems and proofs
To boldly go where no man has gone before

(Raumpatrouille – Die phantastischen Abenteuer des Raumschiffes Orion, colloquially aka Raumpatrouille Orion was the first German science fiction television series. Its seven episodes were broadcast by ARD beginning September 17, 1966. The series has since acquired cult status in Germany. Broadcast six years before Star Trek first aired in West Germany (in 1972), it became a huge success.)
