Maple Labs — Wednesday 27 April is a ‘Maple’ Night

Due to the large number of students attending the module MATH6038 Mathematics for Science 2.2, we now have to introduce a lab split. 

If your name is listed under February 2016, 17 Wednesday, 6.00 pm here (i.e. the first column), you should come in at 18:00. Otherwise come in for a 19:15 start.

The following is the proposed schedule for Weeks 11 and 12(test)

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

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

Wednesdays 19:15-20.55 – Theory class in room C214

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

Wednesdays 19:15-20.55 – Theory class in room C214

Wednesdays 20:55-22:00 – Maple Lab in room C128

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 12.

Week 10

We did a lot of work on probability — tree diagramsreliability block diagrams and the binomial distribution.

Week 11 – Maple Night

We will look at the Poisson distribution, 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. You have a sample Maple Test with solutions. The Maple Test will not include anything from Chapter 2.

Week 13 – Review

We will hold a review class on Wednesday 11 May in the usual room. First off, the layout of your exam is the same as Summer 2015 (in the back of your notes): do question one worth 50/100 and two out of questions two, three, four; each worth 25/100.

I will field any questions ye might have at this time and if there are no questions we will do this exam paper. The best possible thing for your study is to do this exam paper and then on Wednesday see how you got on.

Independent Learning: Exercises

You are supposed to be working outside of class and I am supposed to help you with this. Working outside of class means doing the exercises in the notes. Any work that is handed up will be corrected by me. Also you can ask me a question here on this site and I will answer it ASAP.

  • Tree Diagrams: P.93, Q.1-4
  • Reliability Block Diagrams: P. 98, Q. 1-3, 5, 7
  • Binomial Distribution: P.102, Q. 1, 3-5, 9-11, 13-14, 16, 17

These are good questions to look at — I am not saying that you should do ALL of them.

Maple Catch Up

A number of students have not handed in Maple work. If you want to catch up you have two options

  • download the Maple file from your email, do the exercises in Maple (either in a new worksheet or on top of the original file with the exercises), save the worksheet and email me the worksheet you were working on.
  • come in for a double Maple session on a ‘Maple’ night.
