Week 10

We did a lot of probability — reliability block diagrams, the binomial distribution, the Poisson distribution.

Those who missed the class I recorded some of it here.

Ironically I recorded the same lectures in 2016 as you can see here.

 

Week 11 – Maple Night

We will look at the normal distribution and talk about sampling.

In Maple we will look at Binomial and Poisson random variables.

Week 12 – Maple Test

We will speak about sampling in more detail and also introduce control charts.

The Maple Test will be open book. You have a sample Maple Test with solutions (*the first with(Statistics) should be with(LinearAlgebra)). The Maple Test will not include anything from Chapter 2.

Assignment 2

Assignment 2 has a hand-in date of 17:00 23 April: the Monday of Week 11. Assignment 2 is in the manual, P. 149..

Week 10

The Monday lecture was another tutorial on the P.116 exercises. In the Wednesday lectures we worked on systems of differential equations. In the Thursday lecture we worked on systems of differential equations exercises.

In the Wednesday tutorial we continued with the full Laplace Transform questions.

Week 11

In the Monday and Wednesday lectures we will make a start on the final chapter by looking at double integrals.

In the Wednesday tutorial we will work on the p. 163 and p. 182 exercises. This work will continue on Thursday.

Week 10

We looked at finite differences for the Heat Equation. This completes the examinable written material.

In VBA we implemented same.

Week 11 — 2nd 20% VBA Assessment

In the 09:00 class we will have a revision session, geared towards the 20% VBA Assessment 2. This will look at the 20% VBA Assessment 2 Tutorial Sheet It might therefore be a good idea to go through this before next week.

In the 12:00 class we will have a revision session, geared towards the 40% Written Assessment 2. This will look at the 40% Written Assessment 2 Tutorial Sheet It might therefore be a good idea to go through this before next week.

Formulae will be provided in the VBA 2 Assessment.

To understand how your student numbers generate constants (see below) see this VBA Test 2 from last year (do not read this as a sample – it included e.g. the Heat Equation which you will not be examined on (in VBA) and the Laplace’s Equation might be slightly simpler than what ye will have).

See last week’s Weekly Summary for the Format of the VBA Assessment 2.

Assignment 2

Assignment 2 has a hand-in date of 17:00 23 April: the Monday of Week 11. Assignment 2 is in the manual, P. 149.

Assignment 1

Here are some comments. If you were absent today and want to view your submission next week please email me.

Week 9

We said a few things about damped harmonic oscillators on Monday and the rest of the week was spent working on the p.116 exercises.

Week 9

We made a good start on probability, talking about random variables, independence, mutual exclusivity, conditional probability, and tree diagrams.

You can read about the child paradox here.

Week 10

We will have a lot of probability to do — reliability block diagrams, the binomial distribution, the Poisson distribution.

You have a sample Maple Test with solutions (*the first with(Statistics) should be with(LinearAlgebra)). The Maple Test will not include anything from Chapter 2.

We do not have enough probability done to have a Maple Lab until…

Week 11 – Maple Night

We will look at the normal distribution and talk about sampling.

Week 12 – Maple Test

We will speak about sampling in more detail and also introduce control charts.

The Maple Test will be open book and you will have already received a sample test with solutions.

Week 9

We finished talking about Laplace’s Equation and started talking about the Heat Equation.

In VBA we looked at finite difference methods for Laplace’s Equation. This completes the examinable VBA material. The Heat Equation that we cover in Week 10 will not be examinable. 

Week 10

We will look at finite differences for the Heat Equation. This completes the examinable written material.

In VBA we will implement same.

Linear Algebra: 20% Test

Results pending: along with a copy of the marking scheme and perhaps some further comments.

 

Week 8* Snow Day Catch Up [28 March]

In this class we finished off the chapter on statistics. This can be viewed here.

We also did Maple Lab 4. A little help on setting this up can be viewed here.

Week 9

We will begin delving into the chapter on Probability.

Assignment 1

Results have been emailed to you. Here are some comments. I will bring them with me to class in Week 9 and you can have a look at them then.

Assignment 2

Assignment 2 will have a hand-in date of 17:00 23 April: the Monday of Week 11. Assignment 2 is in the manual, P. 149. Once we get someway into the examples on p.105, you should be able to make a start.

Week 8

In our three lectures we drove into Section 3.4 in the hope that if you so wish to do so, you can complete (or almost complete) Assignment 2 over Easter.

Week 9

I will say a few things about damped harmonic oscillators on Monday and the start of Wednesday and then give you some more time to work on exercises.

VBA Assessment 1 – Results

Have been emailed.

Written Assessment 1 – Results

I would hope to have these with ye early next week.

Week 8

We continued our look at Finite Differences for differential equations, including Laplace’s Equation.

In VBA we looked at the shooting method (and Goal Seek) and finite differences for boundary value problems.

Week 9

We will continue our look at Laplace’s Equation.

In VBA we will look at Laplace’s Equation.

Assessment

The following is the proposed assessment schedule:

  1. Week 6, 20% First VBA Assessment, More Info Below
  2. Week 7, 20 % In-Class Written Test, More Info in Week 5
  3. Week 11, 20% Second VBA Assessment, More Info in Week 9
  4. Week 12, 40% Written Assessment(s), More Info in Week 10

Study

Study should consist of

  • doing exercises from the notes
  • completing VBA exercises

Student Resources

Please see the Student Resources tab on the top of this page for information on the Academic Learning Centre, etc..

*These starred week numbers are one behind CIT’s week numbers. This is because of the snow.

Linear Algebra: 20% Test

Results should be released next week along with a copy of the marking scheme and perhaps some further comments.

Week 7* [21 March]

We had the Linear Algebra Test.

We continued working on statistics by looking at frequency distributions.

Week 8* Snow Day Catch Up [28 March]

In this class we should be able to finish off the chapter on statistics. This segment of the class will be recorded and published on YouTube.

We will also do Maple Lab 4
