With the bank holiday, there will be no Friday DME2C Lab in Week 8. If any DME2C student wants to keep up with the MCQ league they can submit their answers to MCQ V (below) here:

## Week 8

We will finish looking at boundary value problems (in particular Goal Seek) and maybe look at partial differential equations by looking at Laplace’s Equation.

In VBA we will have Lab 6. We will skip Lab 5.

## Week 9

Section 2.1

Lab 7. DME2B’s lab is going to be in F2.11 for the rest of the semester. This is to facilitate another class whose software is in A285 but not F2.11.

## Week 10

Section 2.2

Lab 8 (material examinable in final assessment)

## Week 11

Finish Section 2.2 and then tutorial time

VBA Assessment 2 in the lab slots

## Week 12

Tutorial-like class in the Tuesday lecture. If DME2C are not able to attend any of the Tuesday labs, there will be no labs.

## COMP1B-Y tutorial in Week 8

In Week 8, Thursday March 16, the COMP1B-Y tutorial will be held at 10:00 in A243L rather than 11:00 in C128.

## Quiz 3

We will have Quiz 3 20 March at 3 pm in the usual lecture venue. It will be based on argument and inference.

## Week 8

I was sick for Monday’s lecture. We will catch up on this in time.

We spent the Tuesday and Wednesday lectures, and the tutorial, on argument and inference.

Argument and inference is difficult: and we will be spending all week trying to get a better handle on it.

## Week 9

We will have Quiz 3 20 March at 3 pm in the usual lecture venue. It will be based on argument and inference.

Argument and inference is difficult: and we will be spending all week trying to get a better handle on it.

## 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.

## COMP1B-Y tutorial in Week 8

In Week 8, Thursday March 16, the COMP1B-Y tutorial will be held at 10:00 in A243L rather than 11:00 in C128.

## Week 7

We started talking about argument and inference. We had additional tutorial time again on Tuesday and our 20% on Wednesday evening.

## Week 8

Argument and inference is difficult: and we will be spending all week trying to get a better handle on it.

## Week 9

We will have Quiz 3 20 March at 3 pm in the usual lecture venue. It will be based on argument and inference.

## DME2B Lab venue change and DME2C Lab Week 8

With the bank holiday, there will be no Friday DME2C Lab in Week 8. Instead I have scheduled:

• Monday 13 March, IT1.2, 09:00-11:00

This will be Lab 6. We will be skipping Lab 5. It might be a little tricky in that we might not have loads of the theory done. This cannot be helped.

In any case, if students cannot make this important lab they can try and do the lab remotely using the Lab vidoes on Canvas.

DME2B’s lab is going to be in F2.11 for the rest of the semester. This is to facilitate another class whose software is in A285 but not F2.11.

## Week 7

We (started) looking at boundary value problems (in particular the Shooting Method).

On Wednesday we had our first written assessment.

In VBA we had our first VBA Assessment

## Week 8

We will finish looking at boundary value problems (in particular Goal Seek) and maybe look at partial differential equations by looking at Laplace’s Equation.

In VBA we will have Lab 6. We will skip Lab 5.

## Week 8

Finish Section 1.10

Lab 6 (we will skip Lab 5)

## 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.

## 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:

1. because without doing so you could be very, very lost on 15% Assignment 2 (and 35% exam question), 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 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

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.

## Week 6

We worked hard on second order differential equations. We did some small revision for Written Assessment 1. We only briefly glossed over Runge-Kutta methods, focusing more on the case studies rather than the actual methods.

In VBA we worked on Lab 4.

## Week 7

We will start looking at boundary value problems (in particular the Shooting Method and Goal Seek) on Tuesday, and have Written Assessment 1 on Wednesday.

The Lab will be given over to the VBA Assessment.

## DME2C Lab 13 March, Week 8

With the bank holiday, there will be no Friday DME2C Lab in Week 8. Instead:

• Monday 13 March, IT1.2, 09:00-11:00

This will be Lab 6. We will be skipping Lab 5. If students cannot make this important lab they can try and do the lab remotely using the Lab vidoes on Canvas. It might be a little tricky in that we might not have loads of the theory done. This cannot be helped.

• completing VBA exercises

## 20% Test in Week 7

There will be a 20% Test based on the material we covered in the first five weeks.

• Wednesday March 8th, 6-7pm, Melbourn Hall

For those enrolled on Maths Online, there are some videos here. Please let me know if this link does not work.

## Week 6

On Monday we continued working on logic, doing more examples with logical equivalence. Either simplifying compound propositions, or showing that two compound propositions are logically equivalent. On Tuesday, we had a tutorial-lecture, looking at p.41. I also gave out the following table. On Wednesday we started talking about argument and inference.

In tutorials you worked on p.41 also.

## Week 7

We will do more argument and inference. We will have additional tutorial time again on Tuesday.

## COMP1B-Y tutorial in Week 8

In Week 8, Thursday March 16, the COMP1B-Y tutorial will be held at 10:00 in A243L rather than 11:00 in C128.

Week 9: 2.5% Quiz 3

Week 12: 2.5% Quiz 4

## 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:

1. because without doing so you could be very, very lost on 15% Assignment 2 (and 35% exam question), 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

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.

## Study

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

## Quiz 2

The second 2.5% quiz will be 15.05 pm (SHARP), Monday 27 February in B217. The quiz will be projected on the screen, and you will write your answers on a sheet I hand out at the start of class.

The quiz will be bases on sections 2.1, 2.2, and 2.3. You will need to know what a proposition is, you will need to understand the basic logical connectives $\neg,\vee,\wedge$ (but not the material implication nor biconditional). You will also need to be able to complete and construct truth tables.

## 20% Test in Week 7

There will be a 20% Test based on the material we covered in the first five weeks.

• Wednesday March 8th, 6-7pm, Melbourn Hall

## Week 5

We continued working on logic, defining the logical equivalence of compound propositions $p$ and $q$ by:

• when $p\leftrightarrow q$ is a tautology, we say that $p$ and $q$ are logically equivalent, and we write $p\equiv q$

We had a whole collection of “laws of logic”, which are common logical equivalencies. Your idiot lecturer has some typos here that we will correct on Monday (after Quiz 2). Like with the laws of sets, we can use these laws of logic to simplify compound propositions. Another question type is to show that two compound propositions are logically equivalent, $p\equiv q$. We can use these laws of logic, or show using truth tables that $p\leftrightarrow q$ is a tautology.

On Tuesday, we had a tutorial-lecture, looking at p.36. In tutorials you worked on exercises (p.36, 41).

## Week 6

We will do more simplifying using laws of logic (after Quiz 2). We will have more tutorial-lecture time on Tuesday. Then we should start argument and inference on Wednesday.

## COMP1B-Y tutorial in Week 8

In Week 8, Thursday March 16, the COMP1B-Y tutorial will be held at 10:00 in A243L rather than 11:00 in C128.
