“Any and all work, submitted at any time, will receive feedback.”

“Do not hesitate to contact me with questions at any time. My usual modus operandi is to answer all queries in the morning but sometimes I may respond sooner.”

25% Integration Test

60 minute, 25% Further Integration Test, 19:30 Tuesday 12 May 2020

This test will examine Chapter 4. A Summer 2020 paper was written, and this test will comprise of Q. 4 from that exam. The question comprises 25% of that exam, and that translates to 30 minutes of exam time. I will extend this to 45 minutes and allow 15 minutes to upload. 

Here is video based on Q. 4, on p.226 of your manual.

The material for this test was covered in Week 10, Easter Week 1, and Easter Week 2 (lectures and exercises).

If you have any further questions on these topics, I am answering emails seven days a week. Email before midnight tonight to be guaranteed a response Monday 11 May. I cannot guarantee that I answer emails sent on Monday (although of course I will try).

10% Vectors Test

60 minute, 10% Vectors Test, 19:30 Tuesday 19 May 2020

This test will re-examine Chapter 1. A Summer 2020 paper was written, and this test will comprise of Q. 1 from that exam. The question comprises 25% of that exam, and that translates to 30 minutes of exam time. I will extend this to 45 minutes and allow 15 minutes to upload. 

Here is a video based on Q. 1, on p.222 of your manual.

Chapter 1 Exercises may be found on:

  • p.29
  • p.39
  • p.46

You can submit work for feedback by midnight Saturday 16 May to Vectors Exercises on Canvas. After this, email before midnight Monday 18 May to be guaranteed a response Tuesday 19 May. I cannot guarantee that I answer emails sent on Tuesday (although of course I will try).

 

It is my advice to try and find 7 hours per week for MATH6040, and spend that time on it, working your way down through the learning in this announcement.

Keep in mind at all times:

“Any and all work, submitted at any time, will receive feedback.”

In your Canvas announcements you will see that I have laid out a provisional plan for the remaining assessment.

There is a lot of information and tasks in this announcement but that is to account for the fact that people have got more or less work done on MATH6040 up to now. Work your way down through this announcement. It is my advice to try and find 7 hours per week for MATH6040, and spend that time on it. You may want to put extra time into the Matrices Test.

Now that all the material is covered, I am focusing on supporting your learning.

The first assessment will take place 19:30 Tuesday 14 April 2020 and is based on Chapter 2: Matrices. More information below. The other assessments are provisionally set for 28 April (Chapter 3), 12 May (Chapter 4), and 19 May (Chapter 1). The following plan is designed around these.

It is my advice to try and find 7 hours per week for MATH6040, and spend that time on it. Work your way down through this announcement. If you do not get all the tasks done, that is no problem, the plan is designed so that you can catch up in time (e.g. there will be no new material in Weeks 11, 12, or 13).

I am trying to cover all the material by the end of Easter, and then we can focus on supporting your learning for the remaining assessment. Depending on your circumstances, it might make more sense for you to to get learning front-loaded, or do the remaining learning (all based on Chapter 4), a little closer to the Chapter 4 assessment. Personally, I think keeping up with the learning as it comes is the way to go, but this might not be possible for you.

If you have been engaging with the learning tasks, great, however if this is not the case for you, it is not too late to get on top of all the material and the plan below is designed for such students

The first assessment will take place 19:30 Tuesday 14 April 2020 and is based on Chapter 2: Matrices. More information below. The other assessments are provisionally set for 28 April (Chapter 3), 12 May (Chapter 4), and 19 May (Chapter 1). The following plan is designed around these.

Please find a provisional plan for Weeks 10-13. I do not yet have any certainty around assessment although we are working hard to make a plan. At this time it is my intention to deliver week-on-week up to 19 April, and then have three weeks of review after this. Of course all plans are provisional in the current environment.

Week 10 to Sunday 5 April

If you have completed the tasks outlined in the Week 9 Summary you can now begin on the below.

Lectures

There are about 82 minutes of lectures. You should schedule 2.25 hours to watch them and take the notes in your manual. You need this extra time above 82 minutes because you will want to pause me.

The first two videos are based on this post.

I recorded a lot of this material before in a live lecture: press here to watch live version (84 minutes). Watch the above videos or the live lecture.

One more video that is actually Chapter 3 material (and the recording was a little messed up so no live writing):

Do not hesitate to contact me with questions at any time. My usual modus operandi is to answer all queries in the morning but sometimes I may respond sooner.

Tutorial

Ideally you need to work about 4.75 hours to work on the following exercises.

Exercises:

  • p.178, Q. 1-13 (These questions are revision exercises)
  • p.184, Q. 1-5

Harder Exercises:

  • p.184, Q. 7-9

Additional/Revision Exercises:

  • p.184, Q. 6

You can (carefully) take photos of your work (with questions labelled neatly) and submit to the Week 10 Exercises those images on Canvas before midnight Wednesday 8 April.

If possible, submit the images as a single pdf file. To do this, select all the images in a folder, right-click and press print. It will say something like How do you want to print your pictures? Press (Microsoft?) Print to PDF. If possible choose an orientation that has all the images in portrait.

After 09:00 Wednesday April 9 I will download all student work and reply with feedback.

Do not hesitate to contact me with questions at any time. My usual modus operandi is to answer all queries in the morning but sometimes I may respond sooner.

If you want to submit earlier week exercises at a later date that is no problem as long as questions are labelled neatly. Any and all submitted work will receive feedback.
