Assignment 2

Assignment 2 has a hand-in date of this 24 April and a hand-in time of 17:30. Work handed in late will be assigned a mark of zero so hand in what you have on time. You can hand in your work in class or drop it to A283.

Befitting of the second semester of the award year of a major qualification, this is a difficult assignment. Some of the questions will stretch you more than the work you have done in tutorials. If you are having difficulties completing this assignment over Easter feel free to email me looking for help.

If you can handle what this assignment throws at you not only will you be in a good position for your final exam you will also be in a good position DSE3.

Also, you are in the award year of a major qualification: the Easter break isn’t a break.

Student Feedback

If you would like to submit anonymous feedback on this module/lecturer, you may take the do so here. This link will be open until May 11.

Week 10

We looked at systems of differential equations.

Weeks 11 & 12

We will look at double and triple integrals.

Week 13

We will go through last year’s exam on the board and then I will answer your questions if there are any. If there are none I will help one-to-one.

Test 2

Wednesday 26 April at 09:00 in the usual lecture venue. Based on Chapter 3, sample at back of Chapter 3.

Easter Revision

More than half the class has had poor attendance over the past fortnight. Frankly poor attendance at this time of the year is disastrous. Ye have a lot of work to do to get up to speed over Easter.

Those of us who have been attending also need to do some work to be properly prepared for the Week 10 Test. There are five sets of exercises in Chapter 3. Serious students should have at least done all the questions ‘up to the line’ and further revision is done by doing questions under the line.

Any student is welcome to email me questions during the Easter break.

Ye all have a tutorial the Monday before the Test where I recommend that ye look at the sample but without a body of work done you are going to be in danger for Test 2.

Catch-up

You will each of a catch up class. BioEng2B the Thursday of Week 12 (at 14:00 in B245) and BioEng2A the Monday of Week 13 (at 11:00 in B245).

We will be covering something that will be on an exam paper so attendance is vital.

Week 10

We started Chapter 4 by looking at integration by parts. We also looked at completing the square.

Week 11

In our two lectures we will look at some more completing the square and work.

Week 10

We looked at finite differences for the Heat Equation.

In VBA we implemented same.

Easter

You will receive regular correspondence from me over the next week or so such as sample VBA Assessment 2, sample 40% Written Assessment, sample solutions of both, better programs.

Some of you need to put in a serious effort to get yourselves up to scratch or you will fail this module. It is up to you to be organised and be keeping an eye on the email correspondence.

Feel free to email me any questions that you might have. If you put in the effort I will reciprocate.
