The proof of last proposition of Lecture 16 (pp. 63-64 on visualiser slides), the proof of the
first theorem of Lecture 17 (p. 65) and the proof of the Proposition on finding roots of
Lecture 18 (p.69) are non-examinable, due to adverse weather conditions.
You just need to know the statements.

After the Easter break we have two lectures on rules and compass constructions (mostly non-examinable),
and then start revision and past exam papers.
