Test 1

The test will be on the TUESDAY of Week 5 at 11:00 in B214.

We will have an extra tutorial for all students at 17:00 on Monday in B240 where I will go through the sample and answer any questions.

Week 4

We looked at how to do matrix multiplication and did some examples of matrix arithmetic. We looked at Matrix Inverses — “dividing” for Matrices.

Week 5

We will see full examples of 3×3 inversion using the Gauss-Jordan Algorithm and then look at Matrix Equations.

Week 6

I will be away in Week 6 (9 – 13 March) so you have no maths that week.

We will have catch up classes on Tuesdays at 14:00 in C236 in Weeks 8, 9 and 10. That is an extra MATH6040 lecture on

Continuous Assessment

You are identified by the last four digits of your student number unless you are winning the league. The individual quiz marks are out of 2.5 percentage points. Your best eight quizzes go to the 20% mark for quizzes. The R % column is your running percentage (for best eight quizzes), MPP is your Maple Percentage Points and the GPP is your Gross Percentage Points (for best eight quizzes and Maple). The first two columns are rounded figures but the third, for quiz three, is correct.

The solutions to the last quiz may be found in the notes.

The test will be on the TUESDAY of Week 5 at 11:00 in B214. I am afraid that Tuesday at 14:00 was not possible.

Continuous Assessment

Firstly an apology: question two on Quiz 2 was not in the Question Bank and I am sorry about this. Having said that, if you could do the other Integration by Parts questions, you should certainly have been able to do that one also. You really, really shouldn’t be learning off questions without understanding — it won’t serve you in the long run — the exam questions aren’t coming from a bank. Having said all that it was still unfair (and unintentional) so to make up for it we will have 11 quizzes rather than 10 (and still best out of eight). As far as I can see this is the fairest resolution.

Below find the results. You are identified by the last four digits of your student number unless you are winning the league. The individual quiz marks are out of 2.5 percentage points. Your best eight quizzes go to the 20% mark for quizzes. The R % column is your running percentage (for best eight quizzes), MPP is your Maple Percentage Points and the GPP is your Gross Percentage Points (for best eight quizzes and Maple).

We will look at the applications of vectors to work and moments. We might begin Chapter 2: Matrices.

Test 1

The test will be in Week 5. Ye will be given a sample test in the coming weeks.

Manuals

The manuals are  available in the Reprographic Centre and must be purchased as soon as possible.

Parameter Problems

As discussed in class, please read this clarification for the case of two parameters.

Repeat Students — particularly EXAM ONLY

There have been some changes made to MATH7021

– The chapter on Curve Fitting from MATH7021 has been moved into MATH7019

– In the Linear Algebra Chapter, the Jacobi & Gauss-Siedel Methods have been thrown out. Applications of linear systems to network flows and the heating of plates have been added.

– Second Order Linear Ordinary Differential Equations have been moved from MATH7019 and are now studied as in MATH7021

– The Chapter on Laplace Methods has been unchanged

– Line Integrals have been removed from MATH7021 and instead there will be a greater emphasis on double and triple integrals.

To find out the exact syllabus please consult the module descriptor.

Manuals

The manuals are  available in the Reprographic Centre and must be purchased as soon as possible.

Week 2

We had some time to do solve some Linear Systems ourselves and then we looked at some applications to network flow.

Week 3

We will look at Cramer’s Rule and Partial Pivoting.

Assessment 1

Assessment 1 will have now a hand-in date of Friday March 6 (Week 5). Expect to see the assignment this coming week (Week 3).

Week 6

I will be away in Week 6 (9 – 13 March). I am proposing that we have FIVE hours of classes in Weeks 4, 5 & 7, 8 although this is yet to be confirmed.

Tutorials

Tutorial for Group A: Mondays at 14:00 in E4

Tutorial for Group B, Building Services & Building Energy: Thursdays at 14:00 in B245

Week 1

We began our study of Chapter 2, Vector Algebra. We looked at how to both visualise vectors and describe them algebraically. We learned how to find the magnitude of a vector, add them and scalar multiply them. We spoke about displacement vectors and introduced the vector product known as the dot product.

Week 2

We will continue working with the dot product and then introduce the cross product.

Test 1

The test will be in Week 5. Ye will be given a sample test in the coming weeks.

Week 6

I will be away in Week 6 (9 – 13 March). I am proposing the following:

  • we have one tutorial for all students in Week 5 before the test… perhaps I go through the sample?
  • one extra lecture in Week’s 7 and 8
