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 including Partial Pivoting, which is required in the presence of rounding.

If you download the software package Maple (see the Student Resources tab at the top of this page), 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

We will do some more examples in class before giving you some opportunity to practise.

Assessment 1

Assessment 1 has a hand-in date of Friday 2 March (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.
