Assignment 1 – Results

Last year the results were not made available until Week 8. I will do my best to have them to you comfortably before Week 8.

Week 6

We had an Undetermined Coefficients Tutorial on Monday.

Tuesday, we started looking at “The Engineer’s Transform” — the Laplace Transform. We looked at the first shift theorem, and how the Laplace Transform interacts with differentiation. We started looking at partial fractions.

We had our Undetermined Coefficients Concept MCQ on Thursday. This showed up serious deficiencies in our ability to carry out differentiation. I may or may not come up with some interventional material.

Week 7

We will continue looking at partial fractions and the inverse Laplace Transform. If we can finish Section 3.3 (doubtful) we will have tutorial time.

Assignment 2

Assignment 2 will have a hand-in time and date of 12:00 8 April: the Monday of Week 11. Assignment 2 is in the manual, P. 164. Once we get someway into the examples on p.123 you should be able to make a start.

Gaussian Elimination Tutor

If you download Maple (see Student Resources), there is a Maple Tutor that is easy to use and will help you with Gaussian Elimination. Open up Maple and go to Tools -> Tutors -> Linear Algebra -> Gaussian Elimination.

Study

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

Exam Papers

These are not always found in your programme selection — most of the time you will have to look here.
