## Week 1

We covered Lagrange interpolation and did the theory — and first example — for Least Squares curve fitting.

## Week 2

We will continue talking about Least Squares curve fitting. We might aim to have two tutorial classes.

## Assessment 1

Assessment 1 has a provisional hand-in week of Week 5. Once the class list is established I can send on the student-number-personalised assessment.

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 ith specific questions.

## Outlook

Assignment 3 is up on Canvas and I hope to have Assignment 4 available quite soon. There is about an hour and a half of new material here (well, it is actually more-or-less MATH6040 material) and that is the lectures completed.

• Week 11: Finish Assignment 3, watch all the Chapter 4 lecture material, and then try Chapter 4 exercises. Assignment 4 (20%, based on Chapter 4) will appear at some point.
• Week 12: No new lecture material nor exercises. Will have daily Canvas assignments for students to get next day feedback on Chapter 4 exercises
• Week 13: Finish Assignment 4 for Tuesday 22 December.

## Assignment 2 – Results

It is my intention to have your results out by the end of the Week 10.

## Week 11

### Lectures

About an hour and a half here:

If you want a slightly slower re-introduction to partial differentiation I go over it a bit slower here (along with some more examples – this is from MATH6040).

### Exercises

• p. 171 (revision of partial differentiation)
• p.176 – 177, Q.1-5. Additional exercises p.177, Q.6.

You can (carefully) take photos of your work and submit to whatever Canvas Exercises ‘Assignment’ is open.

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.

## Week 12

Revision/Working on Assignment 4. Will have daily Canvas Exercise Assignments for feedback.

I put few lectures (and no new exercises) into Week 7 but there are lots of lectures here and lots of new exercises. The faster you can (well-complete) Assignment 2 the better and it leaves a possible plan like (again I recommend 7 hrs per week… but managing your time is a difficulty for you to solve).

Green is coming up to Assignment 2, Orange to Assignment 3, and Red to Assignment 4

• Week 8: Complete Assignment 2 and watch as much Week 7 and Week 8 lectures as possible. If ahead of things try some Week 8 exercises.
• Week 9: There will not be as much lecture material, but we will finish Chapter 3. Finish watching the Weeks 7-9 lectures and give time to the Weeks 8 and 9 exercises.
• Week 10: Assignment 3 (20%, based on Chapter 3) will appear. If you have done the exercises from Week 8 and 9 you will be able to attack this. There will be some Chapter 4 lecture material and exercises.
• Week 11: Finish Assignment 3, watch all the Chapter 4 lecture material, and then try Chapter 4 exercises. Assignment 4 (20%, based on Chapter 4) will appear.
• Week 12: No new lecture material nor exercises. Might have daily Canvas assignments for students to get next day feedback on Chapter 4 exercises
• Week 13: Finish Assignment 4 for Tuesday 22 December.

## Assignment 2

Assignment is on Canvas, and has a deadline the end of this week 8, Friday 20 November.

## Week 8

### Lectures

A lot here: you probably need three hours to watch these two hours and 22 minutes of lectures:

### Exercises

• p. 134, Q. 1-7
• p. 142-3, Q. 1-4

• p. 134, Q. 8-9
• p. 143, Q. 5-6

You can (carefully) take photos of your work and submit to the Week 8 Exercises.

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.

## Week 9

We will look at Hypothesis Testing.

I recommend continuing to aim for seven hours per week of MATH7019 but you may want to continue working on Chapter 2/Assignment 2 material before viewing the Week 7 lectures. There are no exercises for the Week 7 lectures.

## Assignment 2

Assignment 2 is now available. It has a deadline the end of Week 8, Friday 20 November.

## Week 7

Your focus at this time should be on Assessment 2: this includes catching up on Chapter 2 lectures and exercises, which were front-loaded into the Week 6 announcement.

### Lectures

Not much here: 48 minutes which can be watched in about 70 minutes.

### Exercises

Same as Week 6.

You can (carefully) take photos of your work and submit to the Week 7 Exercises.

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.

This is being released early so that those who want to work on the Chapter 2 material and get ahead for Assignment 2, perhaps during Reading Week, may choose to do so. At the time of writing I have not decided when Assignment 2 will become available but all relevant lectures have been recorded here.

There is more than 7 hours learning tasks to get through here: realistically this learning will take place primarily over three weeks:

• (For those getting ahead) Reading Week (26 October to 1 November)
• Week 6
• Week 7 (only a little bit of new material)

Again the target/recommendation is 7 hours per week (subject of course to your own time management around other modules, etc.).

## Assignment 2

I had said that I would make Assignment 2, based on Chapter 2, available the morning after Assignment 1 is due. Instead I have made available, via the Week 6 announcement, the rest of the Chapter 2 material.

I will make Assignment 2 available sometime around the end of week 6, Monday of Week 7. It has a deadline the end of Week 8, Friday 20 November.

## Week 6

### Lectures

There is a lot of video here: two hours and 20 minutes… about three and a half hours of time… but the last video can be kept perhaps for Week 7 (9 – 15 November), and Week 7 is going to have very little video.

### Exercises

There are a lot of exercises here. You might consider using the Reading Week to get a little ahead of this work.

You must understand that:

Any and all submitted work will receive feedback.

This includes work submitted late (i.e. Week 4 exercises submitted in Week 5), or work emailed to me. It is easiest for me however if work is:

• Submitted on Canvas
• Properly labelled (page number and question)
• Ideally work that you know is correct (i.e. matches answer in the manual) not be submitted for feedback.

If you are completed the earlier Chapter 2 exercises, and/or feel confident watching the above video, you could look at:

• p. 99, Q. 1-9 (mixture of simply supported and fixed ends)
• p.107, Q.1-8 (mixture of simply supported, fixed ends, and cantilevers)
• p.121, Q. 1-4 (maybe just use Euler’s Method at this time).

You can (carefully) take photos of your work and submit to the Week 6 Exercises.

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.

## Week 7

There will be little new material in Week 7 as you will need time to focus on Chapter 2 with Assignment 2 due in Week 8.

We will begin Chapter 3 on Probability and Statistics. We will look in particular at Mutual Exclusivity and Independence.

## Zoom

Unfortunately when I sent the survey about Zoom, I had not yet “submitted” the Canvas feedback on the Week 3 exercises, and so students opinions might not have been fully informed… at the moment one in three respondents to the survey say they “need Zoom time”, but some of them have not yet submitted to Canvas so… If you want to have your say on this please fill in this survey (Links to an external site.)

This difficult topic will be considered by me again, perhaps after the Reading Break.

You are advised to to spend seven hours per week on MATH7019. This should comprise of however long it takes to watch the lectures, and then the rest of time should be spent emailing questions, doing exercises, completing assignments, and catch-up/revision.

## 30% Assignment 1

With a deadline of 23.59, Friday of Week 5, 23 October for Assignment 1, you must consider time management. Perhaps it might be a good idea to watch lectures, and then spend the rest of your MATH7019 time on Assignment 1.

In the context of this assignment I use the term Originality of Presentation and this video explains what this means.

As the video also explains two files must be submitted:

• a single *.pdf report consisting of your written answers as well as appropriate Excel content. Ideally the Excel work for Problem A near the written work for Problem A, etc.
• an Excel file

Ordinarily I assign late work a mark of zero. As explained in the video my strong recommendation is that you submit what you have done on time. Submitting late is only going to cause backlogs in your other modules.

## Week 4

You are advised to to spend seven hours per week on MATH7019. This should comprise of however long it takes to watch the lectures, and then the rest of time should be spent doing exercises, emailing questions, and submitting work. Also catching up on material we have already covered, and doing exercises. At the time of writing, tutorials consist of you emailing questions and getting feedback on submitted work, but this is subject to change.

### Lecture

Schedule about two and half hours to watch these 104 minutes of lectures. I recommend about 50% extra time as you will want to pause/rewind.

### Exercises

You need to schedule about four and half hours to work on this week’s exercises.

Do not hesitate to contact me with questions at any time. My usual modus operandi is to answer all queries in the morning.

• p. 72 (instructions) for p. 73, Q. 1-5
• p. 89, Q. 1

You can (carefully) take photos of your work and submit to the Week 4 Exercises those images on Canvas before midnight Sunday 18 October. The intention would be that after 09:00 Monday 19 October someone (I am going on two weeks paternity leave at some stage) will download all student work and reply with feedback.

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.

## Week 5

We will then look at more examples of simply supported beams before moving onto fixed-end beams.

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 ith specific questions.

## Assessment 1

Assessment 1 has a provisional hand-in of the end of Week 4, start of Week 5. Once the class list is established I can send on the student-number-personalised assessment.

## Week 3

You are advised to to spend seven hours per week on MATH7019. This should comprise of however long is recommended to watch the lectures, and then the rest of time should be spent doing exercises, emailing questions, and submitting work. At the time of writing, tutorials consist of you emailing questions and getting feedback on submitted work, but this is subject to change.

### Chapter 1 Lectures

Schedule about an hour and a quarter to watch these 51 minutes of lectures. I recommend about 50% extra time as you will want to pause/rewind.

Here are Chapter 1 slides if you have not purchased or printed off the manual.

### Chapter 1 Exercises

You need to schedule about two and a quarter hours to work on these exercises.

• p.41, linearise.
• p.49, Q.1-7.

### Chapter 2 Lectures

Schedule about an hour and a quarter to watch these 54 minutes of lectures. I recommend about 50% extra time as you will want to pause/rewind.

### Chapter 2 Exercises

You need to schedule about two and a quarter hours to work on these exercises.

• p. 59, Q. 1-2.
• p.65, Q.1-3.

### Information for Exercises

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. I am not sure exactly what will happen with these questions while I am on paternity leave… hopefully someone will take these questions for you.

You can (carefully) take photos of your work and submit to the Week 3 Exercises those images on Canvas before midnight Sunday 11 October. The intention would be that after 09:00 Monday 12 October someone (I am going on two weeks paternity leave at some stage) will download all student work and reply with feedback.

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.

## Week 4

We will plough into Chapter 2, looking at simply supported beams.
