In theory (see Learner Workload) you are supposed to spend seven hours per week on MATH7021: my recommendation is that you watch the lecture material, then spend whatever other time you have for MATH7021 on exercises. It is up to you to decide when you complete learning tasks and timetable yourself. There are four hours of MATH7021 slots on your timetable that you can use if you want.

Week 2


You should need about two and half hours to watch these

Gaussian Elimination IV (34 minutes)

Gaussian Elimination V (14 minutes)

Linear Systems: Traffic Flow (30 minutes)

Linear Systems: Pipe Network (22 minutes)

How much time you put into homework is up to you: of course the more time you put in the better but we all have competing interests. Please feel free to ask me questions about the exercises. 

  • p.30, Q. 1-11 (you might have some of these done in Week 1)
  • p.42, Q. 1-3
  • p.48, Q. 1-3
  • Additional Exercises, p.33, Q. 12-22

Submit work for Canvas feedback by Monday 8 February for video feedback after Tuesday 9 February. Ideally you don’t submit work that you are certain is correct, but instead submit work you need help and feedback with. 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.

Week 3

We will finish Chapter 1 and make a start to Chapter 2.
