Continuous Assessment Summary

The results of the individual components of the CA are lower down — in particular Quiz 11.

Unless you won or came second in the league, you are identified by the last four digits of your student number. QPP is your QPP out of 20, MM are your Maple Marks out of 100 (Maple is worth 10% so say 80% gives you 8 Marks for your final grade). GPP is your Gross Percentage Points for CA (out of 30). PP is your Passing Percentage for the final paper — what you need on the final paper to pass. Finally FP is your First Percentage — what you need on the final paper to get a first: 70%.

Week 12

In Week 12 we finished off all but the last example. Then we spoke about applications — especially to damped harmonic oscillators.

Week 13

In Week 13 we will go over the exam paper after p.152. We haven’t done Q.1(b) and 2 (c) in the same way so I will have alternative questions.

The word on the Academic Learning Centre is that although the evening session perhaps might have been made exclusive to evening students, the fact of the matter is that they are not.

My departmental head suggested that if a group of ye want to get an improvement in your ALC experience, that ye should email questions to catherine.palmer@cit.ie in advance of the session. Dr Palmer said that this will allow her to more easily help ye.

Study

Please feel free to ask me questions about the exercises via email or even better on this webpage. Anyone can give me exercises they have done and I will correct them. I also advise that you visit the Academic Learning Centre.

Continuous Assessment Details

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 — now this includes missed quizzes — before I was doing the best non-zero but now I am including the zeros if a zero is in your best eight), MPP is your Maple Percentage Points for the biweekly lab, MT your mark on the Maple Test and MM your Maple Marks (as a percentage). GPP is your Gross Percentage Points (for best eight quizzes and Maple). Most of the columns are rounded but columns 11 & 12, for quizzes 10 & 11, are correct — as is GPP.
