Things are getting very serious now as we start Chapter 3. If you are not putting the time into MATH7021 on Chapter 3 you are going to find yourself way behind and digging yourself into a hole. You have to find regular time to work on Chapter 3. It is my intention to have two hours of Chapter 3 every week until we finish it, and then there are going to be some time where you will be doing Chapter 3 exercises. It is absolutely vital that you put this time into Chapter 3:

  1. because without doing so you could be very, very lost on 35% Assignment 3, and
  2. because if you are going into Level 8 Structural Engineering it will be assumed that you are competent with the Chapter 3 material

Week 6

Lectures

You could need three hours to watch these two hours of lectures:

Exercises

You should work on Chapter 4. Make sure to properly (page and question) label any submitted work.

Submit work for Canvas feedback by Monday 8 March for video feedback after Tuesday 9 March. 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.
