## Week 12

We looked at the Winter 2021 paper for revision. It is in the back of the manual.

We will finish Q. 4 (b) early on Friday, and will have some tutorial time then for the final exam.

We had a tutorial on Tuesday… some students focused on Chapter 3, others did some Chapter 1 revision.

## Final Exam Preparation

Your preparation for the test is doing exercises. There is an awful lot of exercises in Chapter 1 to 4. I recommend in particular:

• Curve Fitting: p. 33, 48
• Probability and Statistics: p. 160, Q. 5-7; p. 179, Q (d); p.171, Q. 1-2; p.178, Q. 1-2
• Taylor Series, p. 134, Q. 1-4; p. 191, Q. 1-4; p. 207, Q. 2-3, 5-6

After Assignment 2, students are probably as prepared as they can be for Static Beam Differential Equations… but possibly no harm to do some refresher questions. They do require practise.

If you want feedback on study, please check your work against answers in the the manual, and/or email me your work with any questions.

• You don’t have to answer questions in order Q. 1, Q. 2, etc. If you know in advance the structure of the exam, you can decide in advance what questions you are doing first, second, etc. This is related to:
• Read questions carefully. Don’t glance at a question and go off writing: take a moment to understand what you have been asked to do.
• Don’t use tippex; instead draw a simple line(s) through work that you think is incorrect.

If you do have time at the end of the exam, go through each of your answers and ask yourself:

2. does my answer make sense? If no, write that on your script, and then try and fix your solution.
3. check your answer (e.g. if you are looking at something general, look at a special case; substitute your solution into equations; check your answer against a rough estimate; or what a picture is telling you; etc.). If your answer is wrong, write that on your script, and then try and fix your solution.

## Week 11

We will finished our look at at hypothesis testing. Then we will drove into Chapter 4. The second part of Chapter 4 was actually second year, MATH6040, material.

Our tutorial was focused on Chapter 3.

## Week 12

We will have a tutorial on Tuesday… probably focused on Chapter 3.

The feeling in the class is that we should do revision via an exam paper… rather than extra tutorials.

I would urge anyone having any problems with material that isn’t being addressed in the tutorial communication to use the Academic Learning Centre. If you are a little worried about your maths this semester you need to be aware of this resource. You will get best results if you come to the helpers there with specific questions.

## Assignment 2

Assignment 2 based on Chapter 2 is on Canvas now: Canvas —> MATH7019 —> Assignments. It is now due on the Monday of Week 10, 28 November.

## Week 10

We finished our look at sampling and then looked at hypothesis testing.

We had our tutorial on Tuesday. Many students continued working on Chapter 2, but some started looking at the normal distribution.

## Week 11

We will finish our look at at hypothesis testing. Then we will drive into Chapter 4. The second part of Chapter 4 is second year material.

Our tutorial will be focused on Chapter 3.

## Week 12

We will do our best to finish Chapter 4 early in the week so that we can have some revision.

The tutorial will probably also be focused on Chapter 3.

## Assignment 2

Assignment 2 based on Chapter 2 is on Canvas now: Canvas —> MATH7019 —> Assignments. It is now due on the Monday of Week 10, 28 November.

## Week 9

We looked at the normal distribution (more calculation focused), and then started looking at sampling.

We had only one tutorial, where most students were working on Chapter 2, for Assignment 2.

## Week 10

We will finish our look at sampling and then look at hypothesis testing.

As I write, we had our tutorial on Tuesday. Many students continued working on Chapter 2, but some started looking at the normal distribution.

## No MATH7019 class Friday 18 November (Week 9)

The Friday lecture will be preponed to Thursday 17 November at 10:00 in C212.

## Assignment 2

Assignment 2 based on Chapter 2 is on Canvas now: Canvas —> MATH7019 —> Assignments. It is due in two weeks.

## Week 8

Due to a technical issue the week started with two tutorials. We looked at Euler’s Method and then we started looking at Chapter 3, where we discussed some of the theory of probability, including random variables, events, mutual exclusivity, and independence.

## Week 9

We will look at the normal distribution (more calculation focused), and then start looking at sampling.

We will probably have only one tutorial (Tuesday).

## No MATH7019 class Friday 18 November (Week 9)

The Friday lecture will be preponed to Thursday 17 November at 10:00 in C212.

## Week 7

We finished looking at cantilevers. I think we actually had two and a half if not three tutorials.

## Week 8

Due to a technical issue the week has started with two tutorials. We have to finish Euler’s Method fairly rapid and possibly start Chapter 3.

## Assessment

Assignment 1 corrections are finally out. Assignment 2 based on Chapter 2 is on Canvas now.

## Week 6

I was sick on Monday and so students were directed to watch this video.

We had two tutorials and looked at fixed end beams in the other lecture.

## Week 7

We will finish looking at cantilevers. We will start looking at Euler’s Method on Friday. There will be two tutorials. Then ye will have your reading week.

## Assessment

Assignment 1 corrections are behind due to some personal circumstances. I aim to have these completed at some point in the reading week.

Assignment 2 may appear on Canvas at some stage this week.

## Week 5

We started looking properly at applications to beams: to simply supported beams.

We had two tutorials on Chapter 2: one on Tuesday and another on Friday.

## Week 6

We will have one or two tutorials and hopefully look at fixed end beams and maybe cantilevers in the lectures. Assessment 2 will also go on Canvas.

## Week 7

We will finish looking at cantilevers. We will start looking at Euler’s Method. There will only be one tutorial. Then ye will have your reading week.

## Week 4

We ploughed into chapter two. We did the mathematical background for Chapter 2

We had a final tutorial on Chapter one on Tuesday.

## Week 3

We looked briefly at correlation, before looking at models that are not linear but log-linear. We had two hours of tutorial time.
