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.

Some comments on common mistakes.

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.


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.
