Extra Tutorial

There will be another extra tutorial in room B180:

  • 13:00-14:00, Tuesday 29 March, Week 10

Assignment 2

Assignment 2 has a hand-in time and date of 11:00 6 April. Assignment 2 is in the manual. You should now make a start on this.

Week 9

The week started badly with myself getting the covid. You were instructed to watch this:

Systems of ODEs (Links to an external site.).

My colleagues Dr Mark Hartnett and Declan Manning covered the four tutorials and hopefully ye learned plenty in those.

Week 10

On Monday we start the final chapter.

But then we will have three classes of tutorials on Laplace transforms… and four if you can make the extra tutorial. Students who are ready for Assignment 2 (due Week 11) can start working on systems of equations.

Week 11

On Monday we will work on double integration. If needs be we will finish this material on Wednesday.

The rest of the week’s classes will be tutorials.

Week 12

On Monday we will work on triple integration. If needs be we will finish this material on Wednesday.

The rest of the week’s classes will be tutorials.

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.

Covid Disruption

My covid enforced absence on Monday was very unfortunate because it meant that ye lost out on possibly an hour of tutorial time for Test 2, which was scheduled for Week 11 (3 April).

I have decided that the best course of action is to postpone Test 2 until Week 12 (24 April), and try and get as much tutorial time into Weeks 10 and 11 on Chapter 3… and then you will also have Easter to work prepare for Test 2.

This isn’t a great strategy, because I would have liked ye to work on Chapter 2 over Easter, but I actually think we got some good time spent on tutorial on Chapter 2, so I think I am happy for us to pursue this plan.

15% Test 2 on Chapter 3

This will now be held at 19:00 24 April. See Canvas for more information.

Week 9

Ye were instructed to watch:

Homework/Study

I would strongly recommend completing the following:

I would invite you to try

  • p.134, Q.1-5

  • p.150, Q.1-3

Additional exercises p.135, Q.6-7, p.142, Q.5-7, p.151, Q.4-5

Please feel free to ask me questions about the exercises via email. In addition, you can hand up your work in class and I will have it correct for the week after.

Week 10

We will have tutorial time on Chapter 3 up until he break and then we will blast into Chapter 4.

Week 11

Depending on how much Chapter 3 tutorial work we get done in Week 10, we might have tutorial time up to the break again and then more blasting of Chapter 4.

Week 12

We have Test 2 based on Chapter 3, and then we finish off Chapter 4. We will have no tutorial time on Chapter 4.

Week 13

We will have revision by doing the Summer 2019 paper at the back of the manual.

Week 9

We will look at some applications of integration:

We may or may not have additional tutorial time.

Outlook

We will start Chapter 4 in Week 10, and Test 2, on Chapter 3, will be in Week 11. A sample test 2 will appear in Week 9. To make Test 2 easier you will be prompted in what technique (tables, manipulation (inc. complete the square), w-substition, parts) to use. This will not be the case in the final exam.

Week 7

We started with a Chapter 2 Concept MCQ.

We started Chapter 3, on Integration. We worked on material that is technically revision from last semester… but because of the rushed nature of MATH6012 I didn’t expect students to be very competent in the material… but actually it seems ye knew more than I had hoped. It is material that is important for Level 7.

We had 45 minutes of tutorial time.
