The Geotech Tutorial Groups are determined by whether or not you are taking MATH7021.

If you are taking MATH7021 your Geotech tutorial is Wednesday 12:00 and you attend the 14:00 MATH7021 class in A243L.

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. We were a little disrupted by snow on Wednesday, effectively costing us 0.5 – 1 hours.

Week 2

We will finish the Gaussian Elimination examples on Monday — then have some tutorial time — and then Wednesday pm begin to look at applications of linear systems to traffic and pipe flow.

Assignment 1 – Warning

Assignment 1 has a hand-in date of  Friday 1 March (Week 5). More information next week.


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