15% Assignment 1

Should probably be underway by you. This has a (provisional) hand in time and date of 11:00 Thursday 24 February. Please see Canvas.

There is one typo in Problem F:

…but you need to ask yourself is it worth your time to keep going for the sake of one mark (out of 62 out of 35%) that is 0.56 percentage points towards your final grade.

It should ne 15% and 0.24 percentage points.

Gaussian Elimination Tutor

If you download Maple (see Student Resources), there is a Maple Tutor that is easy to use and will help you with Gaussian Elimination. Open up Maple and go to Tools -> Tutors -> Linear Algebra -> Gaussian Elimination.

Week 4

I spoke on academic integrity for Assignment 1 (see also Canvas information) but was not yet able to do the Chapter 1 “concept MCQ” (hopefully Wednesday in Week 5).

We drove into Chapter 2, the method of undetermined coefficients for linear differential equations. We more-or-less have it all covered, but we need to see more examples.

We had only 25 minutes of tutorial time — on homogeneous second order differential equations on Thursday.

Week 5

We will move to finish Chapter 2. Any remaining classes will be given over to tutorial time on Chapter 2.


Please feel free to ask me questions about the exercises via email or even better on this webpage.
