In your Canvas announcements you will see that I have laid out a provisional plan for the remaining assessment.

We have now covered all the material, and my focus at this time is to support your learning through the remaining assessment.

If you have completed the learning tasks, and submitted Labs 6, 7, and 8, you should be in a good position to complete the remaining assessment.

However if this is not the case for you, it is not too late to get on top of all the material.

The first assessment will take place 11:00 Tuesday 14 April 2020 and is based on Lab 6. The other assessment are provisionally set for 28 April (based on Lab 7), and 12 May (based on Lab 8). The following plan is designed around these. 

Especially if you have put in the hours over the last three weeks (inclusive), the demand on your time in terms of MATH7016 is now greatly diminished, but this plan also allows those who have not yet had a chance to engage in remote learning to begin. 

Keep in mind at all times:

“Any and all work, submitted at any time, will receive feedback.”

“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.”

Final MCQ

If you have watched the Week 10 lectures, you should be able to do the final MCQ, MCQ VIII.

Submit your answers here before 09.00 Wednesday 8 April.

Easter Week 1 to Sunday 12 April

Catch Up

If you have not yet done so, undertake the learning described under Week 8 here. You may submit your Lab 6 to the UNGRADED Lab 6 Revision assignment on Canvas.

This ‘assignment’ has a due date of Easter Saturday. I have chosen this date so that you receive your feedback two days before the assessment.

Revision

If you have already conducted this learning, and submitted a Lab 6 either back before 23 March, or after, I would invite you, if necessary, to take on board the feedback I gave to that submission, and resubmit a corrected version for further feedback.

Theory

If you feel like doing even more theory work on top of this, consider looking at the following exercises:

  • p.59, Q. 1-3
  • p.90, Q. 1-3

These can be submitted to UNGRADED Lab 6 Theory Exercises by Easter Saturday and will receive feedback Easter Sunday. 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.

Tuesday 14 April, Easter Week 2: Assessment Based on Lab 6

This test is worth 20% and will become available at 11:00 Tuesday 14 April, at which point you may download the student-number-individualised question paper.

You will be asked to write a program. The assessment runs from 11:00 to 12:30. The assessment is designed to be completed in 45 minutes, and there is a very generous 15 minutes allocated to submitting your work to Canvas. There is an additional 30 minutes grace period due to the remote nature of this assessment. Therefore you have until 12:30 to submit your work on Canvas. You can use the 90 minutes however you want but no submissions will be accepted after 12:30.

The remaining plans are provisional.
