### 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

### Lectures

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.

- Laplace’s Difference Equation (26 minutes)
- Mean Value Property (12 minutes)
- Laplace’s Difference Equation Examples (29 minutes)
- Laplace’s Equation Irregular Boundary (9 minutes)
- Calculating Heat Flux Density (7 minutes)

## Outlook

## Week 10

### Lectures

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

### Labs

We will do our last lab in Week 10.

## Assessment

This is provisional and subject to change.

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

## Study

Study should consist of

- doing exercises from the notes
- completing VBA exercises
