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 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.

Assessment 1

Assessment 1 will have a hand-in date of Thursday March 3 (Week 5) and has been given out.


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