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.

Week 1

We started the first chapter on Linear Algebra. Essentially, for us, simultaneous equations. We looked at Gaussian Elimination — and saw the case of infinite solutions.

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.

Week 2

You will work some more on Gaussian Elimination before we started looking at Gaussian Elimination with Partial Pivoting — absolutely necessary if you are using decimal rounding

Assessment 1

Assessment 1 will have a hand-in date of Friday March 3 (Week 5). Expect to see the assignment next week.


Please feel free to ask me questions about the exercises via email or even better on this webpage.
