## Timetable Issues

The Monday class has now been switched to Tuesday 2 pm in A243L.

This week, the Thursday 16 March 09:00 class will run until 10:00 and then we will cancel (not postpone, cancel) the 10:00-11:00 part of the class.

## 15% Assignment 1

All students have submitted. Because of the cyber attack I now have a mountain of corrections as everything got delayed into Week 7. Also we have exam papers to write this week. Thankfully as final year students originally to have submitted in Week 5, ye are first on my list to correct. Hopefully next week.

## Week 7

On Tuesday we had a final Chapter 2 tutorial with some Concept MCQ.

Then the rest of the class will be given over to partial fractions and then the inverse Laplace transform. We managed some tutorial time at the start of Thursday.

## Week 8

We will have lots of tutorial time on the inverse Laplace transform. This is a critical week for this module: please attend properly.

Depending on progress, we may start Section 3.5, full exam questions.

## Week 9

This should be a bumper week of Chapter 3 tutorials if we have finished Chapter 3. It will be in this week that we catch up as we will skip Section 3.6.

## Week 10

This will be a bumper week of tutorials so that you are in great nick to do Assignment 2 over Easter.

## Week 11

We will work on double integration and when we finish that section we will have tutorials.

## Assignment 2

Assignment 2 will have a hand-in time and date of 11:00 20 April. Assignment 2 is in the manual. Once we get someway into the examples on p.126 (probably Week 8) you should be able to make a start.

## Week 12

We will work on triple integration. When finished we will have tutorial time on that topic.

## Week 13, Review Week

We will go through an exam paper, answer questions, and have tutorial time as appropriate. The Monday is a bank holiday. This may or may not affect us.

## Timetable Issues

The Monday class has now been switched to Tuesday 2 pm in A243L.

The week after, we were due to to have a double tutorial, 12:00 sharp to 13:40 on Monday 13 March in A207. Then on Thursday we will not have a double class, but instead just have a 09:05-09:55 class. With the timetable change, and how lectures are progressing, **we will just cancel Thursday 16 March 10 am.**

## 15% Assignment 1

This has a revised deadline. Please see Canvas.

## Week 6

On Tuesday (Monday class was moved) we had some tutorial time on Chapter 2.

On Wednesday we finished Chapter 2 and then looked at The Engineer’s Transform” — the Laplace Transform.

On Thursday, in a double class, we did a survey, and then started looking at partial fractions.

Things are more serious now as we start Chapter 3. We must work hard on this material:

- because without doing so you could be very, very lost on 15% Assignment 2 (and 35% exam question), and
- because if you are going into Level 8 Structural Engineering it will be assumed that you are competent with the Chapter 3 material

## Week 7

On Monday (or perhaps Tuesday, pending timetable changes), we will have a final Chapter 2 tutorial.

Then the rest of the class will be given over to partial fractions and then the inverse Laplace transform.

## Week 8

On Monday, we are due to have a double tutorial.

The rest of the week will be focused on finishing Chapter 3.

## Week 9

This should be a bumper week of Chapter 3 tutorials if we have finished Chapter 3. It will be in this week that we catch up as we will skip Section 3.6.

## Week 10

This will be a bumper week of tutorials so that you are in great nick to do Assignment 2 over Easter.

## Week 11

We will work on double integration and when we finish that section we will have tutorials.

## Assignment 2

Assignment 2 will have a hand-in time and date of 11:00 20 April. Assignment 2 is in the manual. Once we get someway into the examples on p.126 you should be able to make a start.

## Week 12

## Week 5

On Monday we had very poor attendance (something we are trying to do something about) so the students present were invited to start work on Assessment 1.

On Wednesday and Thursday we drove further into Chapter 2, the method of undetermined coefficients for linear differential equations. We more-or-less have it all covered, but we need to see more examples.

## Week 6

We will have tutorial time on Chapter 2 on Monday, and probably only one more Chapter 2 tutorial slot.

Then we will finish Chapter 2.

Things will get more serious now as we start Chapter 3. We must work hard on this material:

- because without doing so you could be very, very lost on 15% Assignment 2 (and 35% exam question), and
- because if you are going into Level 8 Structural Engineering it will be assumed that you are competent with the Chapter 3 material

Chapter 3 is about “The Engineer’s Transform” — the Laplace Transform. We will look at the first shift theorem, and how the Laplace Transform interacts with differentiation. We will start looking at partial fractions.

## Assignment 2

Assignment 2 will have a hand-in time and date of 11:00 20 April. Assignment 2 is in the manual. Once we get someway into the examples on p.126 you should be able to make a start.

## 15% Assignment 1

This should be started ASAP. This has a provisional hand in time and date of 10:45 Thursday 2 March. Please see Canvas.

## Week 3

Well the cyber attack messed us up:

- Assignment 1 is pushed back one week.
- We will skip Section 3.6. Section 3.6 is possibly of use for those going into Structural Engineering, and so video lectures will be made available for those who are interested… but the material will not be examined.

## Week 4

We finished Chapter 1 on by looking at applications to temperature distribution, where the Jacobi Method is used to find approximate solutions to a diagonally dominant linear system.

*If you want a deep dive into the temperature of a plate stuff there is a post here which explains — in great detail — how the ‘iterations’ are actually physically meaningful.*

We had some tutorial time on Monday and again on Thursday, but as ye were doing so well we actually started Chapter 2.

## Gaussian Elimination Tutor

If you download Maple (see Student Resources), there is a *Maple Tutor* that is easy to use and will help you with Gaussian Elimination. Open up Maple and go to Tools -> Tutors -> Linear Algebra -> Gaussian Elimination.

## Week 5

Bar tutorials on Mondays, we are now going to push to complete Chapter 2 as soon as reasonable.

## Study

Please feel free to ask me questions about the exercises via email or even better on this webpage.

## Student Resources

## Week 2

We finished the Gaussian Elimination examples on Wednesday, and began to look at applications of linear systems to traffic and pipe flow (Thursday).

We had more than two classes of tutorials — Monday, a few minutes on Wednesday, and most of the Thursday double.

## Week 3

We will finish the Chapter 1 material and finish the week off with more tutorial time.

## 15% Assignment 1

Assignment 1 has a (provisional) hand-in date of Thursday 23 February (Week 5). More information on Canvas early next week once the class list has settled down.

## Week 1

We started the first chapter on Linear Algebra. Essentially, for us, simultaneous equations. We looked at Gaussian Elimination including Partial Pivoting, which is required in the presence of rounding. We looked at four examples, but had no tutorial time.

## Gaussian Elimination Tutor

If you download Maple (see Student Resources), there is a *Maple Tutor* that is easy to use and will help you with Gaussian Elimination. Open up Maple and go to Tools -> Tutors -> Linear Algebra -> Gaussian Elimination.

## Week 2

We will have tutorial time on Monday, then finish the Gaussian Elimination examples on Wednesday, and maybe begin to look at applications of linear systems to traffic and pipe flow.
