Week 5

We almost finished Chapter 2 on Wednesday. We must do a little more in Week 6.

I was absent Wednesday AM but instead we have an extra class, tomorrow, Thursday 09:00 in B185.

We thus have two hours of tutorial time tomorrow Thursday. You will be allowed work on Assignment 1. If you are ready for Assignment 1 you need to start looking at the Chapter 2 exercises.

Assignment 1

Assignment 1 now has a hand-in time and date of 18:00 Thursday 27 February (Week 5). Submit in class tomorrow or to A283.

  • Work submitted after the deadline will be assigned a mark of ZERO. Hand up whatever you have on time.

Your Excel file must be submitted via CANVAS.

More information in the last two weekly summaries.

Week 6

We will finish off Chapter 2 on Monday and then have some tutorial time.

We will have a Concept MCQ Wednesday AM before cracking into Chapter 3, by looking at “The Engineer’s Transform” — the Laplace Transform.

Week 7 — Thursday

I need to change the class on Thursday 12 March from 10:00 in B212 to 09:00 in B185.

This 09:00 on Thursday is not intended to be a regular thing, but I need to change it in Week 7, apologies.

Assignment 2

Assignment 2 will have a hand-in time and date of 18:00 2 April: the Thursday of Week 10. Assignment 2 is in the manual. Once we get someway into the examples on p.123 you should be able to make a start.


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