See the Week 2 Summary for more.

Week 3

On Monday, we looked at applications to temperature distribution, where the Jacobi Method is used to find approximate solutions to a diagonally dominant linear system. We had about ten minutes of tutorial time.

To understand more what is going on watch the following video, which shows how the approximations to the solution iterate:

On Wednesday we had two tutorials on Chapter 1, including a second Concept MCQ.

On Thursday we started work on Chapter 2 — the method of undetermined coefficients for solving linear odes.

Week 4

We will continue our work on Chapter 2 on Monday and Wednesday AM, then we will have two tutorials Wednesday PM and Thursday.


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