Assessment Corrections

I cannot promise at this point when these will be completed. I am having a hardware issue at the moment which means that I might have to get the ball rolling for ye by correcting the Written Assessment first. Watch this space.

Week 8


Some theory background for Chapter 2:

Intro to PDEs and Laplace’s Equation (39 minutes)

The first part of this on finite differences is important for the rest of the semester. The second, a handwaving derivation of Laplace’s Equation. It should give you an idea of what a PDE is, should help consolidate some “thermo”-type stuff, but is theoretical background.

There is a longer, more in-person (old) version of the above material: Intro to PDEs (less than 20 minutes), and Derivation of the Laplace Equation (40 minutes).

Theory Exercises and Q & A

You might want to focus on labs that you didn’t get to look at yet (as well of course as Lab 6)

Week 9

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.


Week 10


Perhaps of the order of 1.5 hours of lectures on the Heat Equation. We will then be finished the lecture material.


We will do our last lab in Week 10.


This is provisional and subject to change.

  1. Week 6, 25% First VBA Assessment, Based (roughly) on Weeks 1-4
  2. Week 7, 25 % In-Class Written Test, Based (roughly) on Weeks 1-5
  3. Week 11, 25% Second VBA Assessment, Based (roughly) on Weeks 6-9
  4. Week 12, 25% Written Assessment(s), Based on Weeks 6-11


Study should consist of

  • doing exercises from the notes
  • completing VBA exercises
