## Assessment 1 – Results

I am starting corrections today and will get the results to you as soon as I can. I cannot give an accurate day at this stage: it could be Monday but just as easily could be a few days after this – I can’t make any promises.

## Assessment 2

Assessment 2 is on p.136. It has a hand-in date of Monday 26 November and we have already covered everything that will be asked and so you have over five weeks to complete the assignment.

## MicDrop Project

On Monday you will be sent a 15 minute survey that you will take on a mobile internet device — such as your mobile phone — during Monday’s lecture.

This survey is part of a larger project the Mathematics Department is undertaking — **Mathematics in Context: Developing Relevancy-Orientated Problems **— in an effort to improve our teaching.

If you do not have an internet ready device you may leave class early.

## Reading Break, etc.

Maths Classes will be going full steam ahead on Monday 22 October as well as Wednesday, Thursday, Friday 1, 2, 3 November. I will call the next two weeks by Week 7.

## Week 6

In Week 6 we finished looking at cantilvers and then summarised what we learnt about beams. We had one lecture as a tutorial but then looked at numerical approximations to solutions of differential equations that we cannot solve exactly.

After the storm last year I recorded some examples. If you missed some classes this week you could do worse than watch this cantilever example and this summary of beams to catch up

## Week 7

In Week 7 we will look at the Three Term Taylor Method and begin Chapter 3 on Probability and Statistics.

## Study

Please feel free to ask me questions about the exercises via email or even better on this webpage — especially those of us who struggled in the test.
