### Written Assessment 1 – Week 7

Next week’s Zoom will be Monday 15:00 instead of Tuesday.

25% Written Assessment 1, based on Weeks 1-5, so everything up to p.73.

It will be a one hour assessment, but I am going to give ye 15 minutes grace, as well as 15 minutes to upload. The test will run therefore from 09.30 to 11.00, Tuesday 9 March. It is open book — you can use your manual, any Canvas materials, as well as Excel/VBA.

The questions mentioned below are only a guide to the content not the actual questions.

40% of the marks will be numerical methods (Euler, TTT, Heun); finding approximations like p.34, Q.1-3, p.37, Q.1-3, p.48, Q.1-4 (non-Excel parts of Q.4), p.60, Q.4-7.

30% of the marks will be numerical analysis; understanding these methods and their errors like p.34, Q. 4, p.38, Q.4-6. p.49, Q.5-8,

15% will be neither; like p.17, Q. 1-2, p.40, Q.1-3, p.60, Q.1-3

15% will be Runge-Kutta, like p.72, Q.1-2.

Academic Dishonesty will not be accepted and suspected breaches, such as communication with others during the assessment, will be pursued in line with this policy (Links to an external site.)

## Week 7

### Lectures

Just a very short lecture (time is taken up by Written Test 1):

Goal Seek for Boundary Value Problems

## Week 8

I have linked here to last year’s videos but will be recording fresh videos. How different they will be I am not too sure.

We will look at Intro to PDEs (less than 20 minutes), and then watch the Derivation of the Laplace Equation (40 minutes).
