You are currently browsing the category archive for the ‘MATH7021’ category.

You have to put regular time to work on Chapter 3:

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

You need to finish off Chapter 2 and Assignment 2 ASAP (only worth 15%) and then get cracking on Chapter 3.

Week 7

Lectures

You could need three hours to watch these 115 minutes lectures:

Exercises

You need to finish off Assignment 2 and then start looking at Chapter 3 Exercises:

  • p.105
  • p.115, Q. 1-5

Additional Exercises: p116, Q.6-7

Submit work for Canvas feedback by Monday 15 March for video feedback after Tuesday 16 March.

Outlook

Week 8 we are going to finish off the material for Assignment 3.

Then in Weeks 9 and 10 you spend all your time doing Chapter 3 Exercises/Assignment 3. This is actually four weeks with the Easter break — and it is my intention to continue providing learning support throughout the Easter break.

Weeks 11 and 12 are given over to Chapter 4.

Assignments

35% Assignment 1 on Chapter 1 — due end of Week 5, 28 February.

15% Assignment 2 on Chapter 2 — due end of Week 7, Sunday 14 March

35% Assignment 3 on Chapter 3 — due end of Week 11, Sunday 25 April will be released when ye have enough material to complete

15% Assignment 4 on Chapter 4 — due end of Week 13/14/15, (7/14/21 May) tbd

Student Resources

Things are getting very serious now as we start Chapter 3. If you are not putting the time into MATH7021 on Chapter 3 you are going to find yourself way behind and digging yourself into a hole. You have to find regular time to work on Chapter 3. It is my intention to have two hours of Chapter 3 every week until we finish it, and then there are going to be some time where you will be doing Chapter 3 exercises. It is absolutely vital that you put this time into Chapter 3:

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

Week 6

Lectures

You could need three hours to watch these two hours of lectures:

Exercises

You should work on Chapter 4. Make sure to properly (page and question) label any submitted work.

Submit work for Canvas feedback by Monday 8 March for video feedback after Tuesday 9 March. Ideally you don’t submit work that you are certain is correct, but instead submit work you need help and feedback with. 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

We will crack further into Chapter 3.

Assignments

35% Assignment 1 on Chapter 1 — due end of Week 5, 28 February.

15% Assignment 2 on Chapter 2 — due end of Week 7, will be released Sunday 28 February

35% Assignment 3 on Chapter 3 — due end of Week 11, will be released when ye have enough material to complete

15% Assignment 4 on Chapter 4 — due end of Week 13/14/15, tbd

Students… I am an idiot… it appears I accidentally overwrote the Week 5 announcement. 

The lectures for Week 5 are here, here, and here.

In theory (see Learner Workload) you are supposed to spend seven hours per week on MATH7021: my recommendation is that you watch the lecture material, then spend whatever other time you have for MATH7021 on exercises, and assignments if you are ready for them. It is up to you to decide when you complete learning tasks and timetable yourself. There are four hours of MATH7021 slots on your timetable that you can use if you want.

Week 4

Lectures

You should need about two hours to watch these

Exercises

How much time you put into homework is up to you: of course the more time you put in the better but we all have competing interests. You might want to complete Assignment 1, or submit more Chapter 1 exercises for feedback, before doing Chapter 2 exercises.

  • p.62, Q. 1-2
  • p.70, Q. 1-7

Submit work for Canvas feedback by Monday 22 February for video feedback after Tuesday 23 February. Ideally you don’t submit work that you are certain is correct, but instead submit work you need help and feedback with. 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 finish Chapter 2.

15% Assignment 2

Based on Chapter 2, should be available some time in Week 4, for submission in Week 7.

Please feel free to ask me questions about the exercises via email. I answer emails every morning seven days a week.

As soon as I send this I am putting the finishing touches to your first assessment — it might be here by tomorrow, Wednesday 3 February.

Week 3

Lectures

You should need about two hours to watch these

Temperature of a Plate: Jacobi Method (34 minutes)

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.

Intro to Method of Undetermined Coefficients (24 minutes)

Method of Undetermined Coefficients: Theory (24 minutes)

Exercises

How much time you put into homework is up to you: of course the more time you put in the better but we all have competing interests. Please feel free to ask me questions about the exercises: you may want to put time into the Week 1 and 2 exercises if you did not do so previously.

In theory (see Learner Workload) you are supposed to spend seven hours per week on MATH7021. We have voted for the OFFLINE model: my recommendation is that you watch the lecture material, then spend whatever other time you have for MATH7021 on exercises. It is up to you to decide when you complete learning tasks and timetable yourself. There are four hours of MATH7021 slots on your timetable that you can use if you want.

Week 1

Lectures

We had one hour of Live Zoom. This should be recorded in “Zoom” on the left there. Updated annotated notes.here 

You should watch this hour and 23 minutes of lecture video this week:

Gaussian Elimination I (33 minutes)

Gaussian Elimination II (23 minutes)

Gaussian Elimination III (27 minutes)

Exercises

How much time you put into homework is up to you: of course the more time you put in the better but we all have competing interests. Please feel free to ask me questions about the exercises. 

It might be the case that you need to see more examples (in Week 2 lectures… probably available by Friday evening) before attempting these. On the other hand, if you can do these already you are in a great position in MATH7021.

I hope to have Assignment 2 corrected and the marks communicated to you within 48 hours. That is a hope not a promise.

Many of you only submitted Assignment 2 late in the day and need to find at least (in my opinion) 7 hours per week to catch up on the other material.
