Please find a provisional plan for Weeks 9-13. I do not yet have any certainty around assessment. At this time it is my intention to deliver week-on-week up to 19 April, and then have three weeks of review after this. Of course all plans are provisional in the current environment.

Week 9 to Sunday 29 March


If you have not looked at the Week 8 material you should do so now.

A very short lecture as I want you to devote a lot of time doing exercises this week:


You will be recommended to spend the remainder of your MATH7021 time, c. 6.75 hours working on the p. 133-8 exercises. Start with:

  • p.133, Q. 1-10

When you feel you are comfortable with the material please begin Assignment 2 on p.167.

Otherwise continue with:

  • p.137, Q. 11-18

You can (carefully) take photos of your work (with questions labelled neatly) and submit to the Week 9 Ungraded Tutorial Work those images on Canvas before midnight Sunday 29 March. After 09:00 Monday 30 March I will download all student work and reply with feedback.

If possible, submit the images as a single pdf file. To do this, select all the images in a folder, right-click and press print. It will say something like How do you want to print your pictures? Press (Microsoft?) Print to PDF. If possible choose an orientation that has all the images in portrait.

Do not hesitate to contact me with questions at any time. My usual modus operandi is to answer all queries in the morning but sometimes I may respond sooner.

Assignment 2

You are now able to begin Assignment 2 on p.167. My advice for the moment, for MATH7021 at least, is to focus at this time on learning rather than assessment. If you have gotten to grips with Laplace Transforms, doing Assignment 2 is as good a learning task as any. I am sorry that I cannot be more definitive than that at this stage. As soon as I have more information I will let you know.

Week 10 to Sunday 5 April


Perhaps of the order of 1.5 hours of lectures on Systems of Differential Equations.


Same as Week 9.

From this point on there is little point making advance plans for Tutorials.

Week to Sunday 12 April


Perhaps of the order of 2 hours of lectures on Double Integrals.

Week to Sunday 19 April


Perhaps of the order of 2 hours of lectures on Triple Integrals.

Week 11 to Sunday 26 April


I will go over the Summer 2019 Exam Paper. This video may be of the order of 3 hours.

Monday 27 April to ?

It is my intention to continue providing learning support for you.

Undetermined Coefficients

Only those of us who finished Assignment 1 early got much tutorial time with Chapter 2. I will hope that we will get more tutorial time on Chapter 2 at a later date, but until then, I have developed the following for you to practise your differentiation which you need for Chapter 2 here:


  • p.86, Q. 1-5
  • p. 91, Q. 1-7
  • p. 86, Q. 6
