I am emailing a link of this to everyone on the class list every week. If you are not receiving these emails or want to have them sent to another email address feel free to email me at jpmccarthymaths@gmail.com and I will add you to the mailing list.

Test 2

The second test will be on in Week 11. That is Wednesday 9 April February at 12:00 in B228. Ye can find a sample here.

It is vital that ye have a look at all the additional notes as well as perhaps section 3.3.2

Week 9

In the tutorial we looked at finding the Laplace transform of  the solutions of differential equations and also we did some inverse Laplace Transforms.

In lectures we started line integrals.

Week 10

In the tutorial we will look at doing full Laplace transform questions. On Thursday we will do the sample test. On Wednesday we will finish off the line integrals.

Week 11

In the tutorial ye can look at slightly harder full Laplace transform questions that require the first shift theorem.

Exam Format

Five questions do four:

Q. 1 — a question on each chapter.

Q. 2 — questions on chapter 1

Q. 3 — questions on chapter 2

Q. 4 — questions on chapter 3

Q. 5 — questions on chapter 4

As in this sample.

Academic Learning Centre

Those in danger of failing need to use the Academic Learning Centre. As you can see from the timetable is quite generous. You will get best results if you come to the helpers there with specific questions.

Math.Stack Exchange

If you find yourself stuck and for some reason feel unable to ask me the question you could do worse than go to the excellent site math.stackexchange.com. If you are nice and polite, and show due deference to these principles you will find that your questions are answered promptly.

Maple Online & Wolfram Alpha

If you are subscribed to CIT MathsOnline you will have free access to the mathematical software package Maple:

Self-enrolment for Maths Online

1.           Log into Blackboard Learn

2.           Click on the Courses tab button at the top of the screen. Go to Course Search and type Maths Online in the box.

3.           Once you’ve found the course, click the non-credit-course button and click on Enrol. This should take you to the Self Enrolment page.

4.           Your Access Code is mathsonline (lower case, no spaces).

5.           After you’ve finished click Submit. You should now see a message that says your enrolment was successful.

Once you’ve enrolled, no go back to the Blackboard home page and click on the Maths Online button: it should be under an Academic Learning Support Tab. You can download Maple by selecting the Mathematical Software tab in the left hand column and following the instructions under the Maple item. Click Maple text to start.

I myself am not a Maple expert but ‘grew up’ with another mathematical software package MathematicaMathematica powers the “computational knowledge engine” WolframAlpha. Go on ask it a question!

Additional Notes: E-Books

If you look in the module descriptor, you will see there is some suggested reading. Of course I think my notes are perfect but if you can look here, search for ‘glyn advanced modern engineering math’ you will see that the library have an E-Book resource.
