Quiz 3 Results

Below find the results. You are identified by the last four digits of your student number unless you are excelling. The 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). The QPP is your Quiz Percentage Points. MPP is your Maple percentage points. GPP is your gross percentage points. One student didn’t write down their name for Quiz 3. They should email me.

Maple Labs

The Maple Lab takes place in C128.

The 15 individuals who responded to the poll and wanted to start at 18:00 (below) are guaranteed a spot in the early sitting. If there is space for more they can be accommodated, otherwise they have to start at 19:15 and do Maple at 20:55. Note there is a smaller class for the later Maple. If you are struggling with Maple you could consider switching to the later class to get more attention.

maple-split

The following is the proposed schedule for Weeks 3, 5, 7, 8, 10, 11:

Group 1 – Starts at 18:00 and Finishes at 20:50:

Wednesdays 18:00-19:05 – Maple Lab in room C128

Wednesdays 19:15-19:30 – Weekly Quiz in C212

Wednesdays 19:30-20.50 – Theory class in room C128

Group 2 – Starts at 19:15 and Finishes at 22:00:

Wednesdays 19:15-19:30 – Weekly Quiz in C128

Wednesdays 19:30-20:50 – Theory class in room C212

Wednesdays 20.55-22:00 – Maple Lab in room C128

In weeks where there is no Maple Lab, the quiz will take place from 19:00-19:15 sharp.

Assessment 1

The hand in date is 14:00 Friday 3 March. If you have the assignment completed on Thursday hand it to me in class otherwise drop it in A283. Work submitted after 14:00 on Friday 3 March will be assigned a mark of zero. Hand up whatever you have on time.

Week 4

We started work on Chapter 2 — the method of undetermined coefficients for solving linear odes.

Test 1

The 15% Test 1 will take place at 09:00 on Wednesday 1 March, Week 5, in B149. There is a sample test in the notes.

Week 4

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

As an application we solved matrix equations and linear systems.

Week 5

We will look at Determinants and their use in Cramer’s Rule.

Written Assessment 1

The first test takes place Tuesday 7 March at 09:00 in B242.
Here you can see type of questions which you will have to be able to answer in the first test.
The questions are divided into P, M and D:
  • P are pass questions and test your ability to implement methods and show basic understanding.
  • M are merit questions and test your ability to solve slightly harder problems as well as understand error.
  • D are distinction questions and test your ability on solve hard problems, generalised problems as well show a deeper understanding.
Your Test will have, roughly,
  • 30 Marks of P questions
  • 40 Marks of M questions
  • 10 Marks of D questions
See here for some worked examples.

Week 4

We spoke some more about Huen’s Method. We will also see how to handle second order differential equations.

In VBA we implemented Huen’s Method.

Week 5

We will introduce the full Runge-Kutta Theory.

In VBA we look at a second order system. We will use Euler’s Method and/or Huen’s Method.

Week 3

You worked on problems with partial pivoting and application and we looked at applications to temperature distribution, where the Jacobi Method is used to find approximate solutions to a diagonally dominant linear system

Week 4

We will start work on Chapter 2 — the method of undetermined coefficients for solving linear odes.

Week 3

We looked at the applications of vectors to work and moments. We began Chapter 2: Matrices.

Week 4

We will do some examples of matrix arithmetic and look at Matrix Inverses — “dividing” for Matrices.

Week 3

We finished our work on Taylor Series and used it to analyse the Euler Method, and improve the Euler Method to a Three Term Method.

We explained the problem with the Three Term Taylor Method and changed tack to look at Huen’s Method.

In VBA we finished off our Euler Method problem and some of us wrote a Newton Cooling programme.

Week 2

We finished looking at Gaussian Elimination. If you download Maple (see Student Resources), there is a Maple Tutor that is easy to use and will help you. Open up Maple and go to Tools -> Tutors -> Linear Algebra -> Gaussian Elimination.

We looked at Gaussian Elimination with Partial Pivoting — absolutely necessary if you are using decimal rounding.

We looked at applications to network flows: traffic and pipes.

Week 3

We will work on problems with partial pivoting and application and perhaps start looking at applications to temperature distribution.

Manuals

You will need to purchase the manual from the CIT Copy Centre beside the Student Centre (in the same room as where you get your photos taken for your student card). Note that this is a cash-free area so you will need to put the appropriate amount of funds on your student card.

The Copy Centre will be open until 19:30 the first and second weeks of the term but from next week goes back to normal opening hours — closing at 16:30.
