Assignment 2

Assignment 2 has a hand-in time and date of 11:00 6 April. Assignment 2 is in the manual. You need to get on this prompto.

Week 10

On Monday we started the final chapter.

But then we will had three classes of tutorials on Laplace transforms… and four if you made the extra tutorial.

Week 11

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

The rest of the week’s classes will be tutorials on Laplace transforms and systems of odes.

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.

15% Test 2 on Chapter 3

This will now be held at 19:00 25 April. See Canvas for more information.

Week 10

With a focus on Chapter 3, we had an hour of tutorial on that, and then blasted into Chapter 4.

We did a review of differentiation and then looked at parametric differentiation.

Homework/Study

Homework/Study at this time should be concentrated on the Chapter 3 exercises.

There are exercises on pages 118, 123, 130, 134, 141, 150.

The more you put in obviously the better you will be at this stuff.

If you have somehow got to the stage that you feel you are fully prepared for Test 2 on Chapter 3, you could look at:

  • p.162, Q. 1-2
  • p.175, Q.1-3

with additional questions p.175, Q.4-7.

Week 11

We are going to have more tutorial time, I am going to print off copies of the sample test for ye (it is on Canvas under the Assignments button). If you want you can try the sample test during the week.

Then we are going to blast into related rates and implicit differentiation.

Week 12

We have Test 2 based on Chapter 3, and then we finish off Chapter 4 with partial differentiation and error analysis. 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.

Covid Disruption

We have had a very disturbed time with me catching the covid. DME2C are particularly badly hit. To help ease the situation, we will have a revision lab in Week 10 (VBA Assessment 2 is based on Labs 6 and 7).

Lab 8, which is examinable in the Written Assessment in Week 13, will now be held after Easter.

VBA Assessment 2

See Canvas for the assessment information.

MCQ League

This is currently in a mess. I would invite DME2C students do MCQ VI (below) and submit their answers here.

Week 8

We finished looking at boundary value problems (in particular Goal Seek) and began looking at partial differential equations by looking at Laplace’s Equation.

In VBA, DME2A and DME2B had Lab 6. We skipped Lab 5. DME2C were due to do Lab 6 on the Monday of Week 9 but my covid disrupted this. DME2C should have worked on Lab 6 before Friday 1 April:

Watch this (Links to an external site.) to start you off. Next attempt Lab 6 yourself. Just use Euler’s Method rather than any RK. If stuck, please watch this (Links to an external site.). Any questions please email.

Week 9

I was out with covid. Ye received the following instructions:

DME2 Lectures Tuesday and Wednesday

Watch this (Links to an external site.) and then this (Links to an external site.).

DME2 Lab 7

Watch this (Links to an external site.) to start off. Next attempt the lab yourself. If stuck, please watch this (Links to an external site.). Any questions please email.

Week 10

In lectures we will cover the final section, on the Heat Equation.

In the VBA Lab we will have a revision class. What you do in this class will depend on how much you have done independently in Week 9.

Week 11

In the lecture slots, I will do theory/calculation exercises from the notes.

In the VBA lab, we will have our second assessment.

Week 12

In the lecture slots, I will do theory/calculation exercises from the notes.

In the VBA lab, we will do Lab 8.

Week 13

In the 10:00 Tuesday class I will do theory/calculation exercises from the notes.

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.

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.
