Feedback on the May 2019 exam is available on Blackboard.

My response to your Week 3 feedback forms is here.


Students will be required to use MATLAB occasionally and should know how to set up vectors, perform mathematical operations on vectors, write simple programmes and plot functions. If you are not confident with MATLAB don't panic. Demos will be given in examples classes and plenty of examples will be given in the lecture notes. Useful MATLAB resources and tutorials can be found on the web, including, HERE. An extensive range of MATLAB manuals are also available at the library.

Lecture Notes

Students should take their own notes in class. Pdf copies of my notes will be provided on Blackboard. These should be used alongside your own notes.

Example Sheets

There will be one examples class every TWO weeks. I will indicate below which questions you should attempt in which weeks.


The coursework deadline has now passed.

Exam resources and feedback

Tutorials will provide an opportunity for students' work to be discussed and provide feedback on their understanding. Coursework or in-class tests (where applicable) also provide an opportunity for students to receive feedback. Students can also get feedback on their understanding directly from the lecturer, for example during the lecturer's office hour.
