DME2B Lab venue change and DME2C Lab Week 8

With the bank holiday, there will be no Friday DME2C Lab in Week 8. Instead I have scheduled:

  • Monday 13 March, IT1.2, 09:00-11:00

This will be Lab 6. We will be skipping Lab 5. It might be a little tricky in that we might not have loads of the theory done. This cannot be helped.

In any case, if students cannot make this important lab they can try and do the lab remotely using the Lab vidoes on Canvas.

DME2B’s lab is going to be in F2.11 for the rest of the semester. This is to facilitate another class whose software is in A285 but not F2.11.

Week 7

We (started) looking at boundary value problems (in particular the Shooting Method).

On Wednesday we had our first written assessment.

In VBA we had our first VBA Assessment

Week 8

We will finish looking at boundary value problems (in particular Goal Seek) and maybe look at partial differential equations by looking at Laplace’s Equation.

In VBA we will have Lab 6. We will skip Lab 5.
