Week 6

The storm cost us one lecture. Please watch this cantilever example and this summary of beams to catch up. Wednesday, we looked at Euler’s Method in the morning and had an extra tutorial in the evening.

Week 7

In Week 7 we will look at the Three Term Taylor Method and begin Chapter 3 on Probability and Statistics.

 

Assessment 2

Assessment 2 will be handed out on Friday but doesn’t have to be completed until the Monday of Week 11, giving you more than five full weeks to complete it.

Study

Please feel free to ask me questions about the exercises via email or even better on this webpage — especially those of us who struggled in the test.

Week 5

In Week 5 we finished looking at simply supported beams. We then looked at fixed end beams and cantilevered beams.

Week 6

In Week 6 we will summarise what we learnt about beam and look at numerical approximations to solutions of differential equations that we cannot solve exactly.

Assessment 1

Assessment 1 has been emailed to all of you. The hand in date is, tomorrow,  17:30 Thursday 12 October 2017. I will be in A283 from 10:00-12:00 and 13:00-17:30. Work handed in late shall be assigned a mark of zero.

Week 4

In Week 4 we started looking at simply supported beams. We had a tutorial instead of a lecture Wednesday morning.

Week 5

In Week 5 we might finish looking at simply supported beams and have a look at fixed end beams.

Week 3

In Week 3 we finished Curve Fitting and started the second chapter on Differential Equations — with a particular emphasis on Beam Equations.

Week 4

In Week 4 we will start looking in particular at simply supported beams.

Week 2

We finished talking about linear least squares curve fitting. We spoke briefly about the Pearson correlation coefficient, and we began talking about fitting curves/models that aren’t of the form

Y=a\,\theta_1(X)+b\,\theta_2(X)

Week 3

In Week 3 we will continue talking about these non-linear models.

Manuals

The manuals are available in the Copy Centre. Please purchase ASAP.

Tutorials

Tutorials, which are absolutely vital, start next week.

Week 1

In week one we spoke in general terms about curve fitting. We introduced Lagrange Interpolation and started talking about Least Squares curve fitting.

Week 2

In Week 2 we will continue talking about Least Squares Curve Fitting.

There are a number of ways of explaining why you cannot divide by zero. Here are my two favourites.

Any Set of Numbers Collapses to a Single Number

How old are you? Zero years old.

How tall are you? Zero metres old.

How many teeth do you have? Zero.

How many Superbowls has Tom Brady won? Zero

Yep, if you allow division by zero you only end up with one number to measure everything with.

Week 12

We looked at sampling and hypothesis testing.

I sent you a very important email about your continuous assessment marks. Please read it.

Week 13

We will go through last year’s exam on the board and then I will answer your questions if there are any. If there are none I will help one-to-one. Usual class times and locations.

Week 11

We looked at the BinomialPoisson and Normal Distributions.

Week 12

We will look at sampling and hypothesis testing.

Assessment 2

Assignment 2 submissions to be left on my desk in A283 by 18:00 on Monday. I should be in the room 09:00-10:00, 11:00-13:00 and 14:00-15:00.
There are four other lecturers in this office so hopefully somebody will be there if you come outside this time. There is a class at 13:00 on Monday in A213B into which you can also drop your submission.
 
I do want a print out of the Excel work and please email the Excel work to me also.

Work submitted to A283 after 18:00 on Monday 21 November will be assigned a mark of zero. Hand up whatever you have on time.

Catch-Up Class

At the moment we are down 2.5 hours due to a number of missed classes. We will make one hour up on Tuesday 22 November at 16:00 in B180.

Week 10

We applied what we learnt to error analysis.

Week 11

We will start the last chapter on probability and statistics. We will look at the BinomialPoisson and Normal Distributions.
