Content and material
Test one solutions
, a marking scheme will be up shortly.
As promised, here is the cover sheet
for test one.
Old tests (with solutions) are below.
At this stage it is intended that Test 2 will be held in the Monday lecture of week 12, that is Monday October 4th from 10.00-10.50am. Provision will be made for any student who is not on campus.
The formula sheet that will be provided with Test 2 is here: 2021T2 Test 2 Formula Sheet
Here are three previous exams (only the relevant parts for Test 2 are shown). This is more revision material for Test 2.
A practice test will appear on blackboard (via the left-hand menu link or otherwise) closer to the assessment period.
There is no textbook for Engr 123.
Detailed lecture notes will also be posted on the course homepages from week to week.
See the course outline for an overview.
To expand on the official assessment notes in the Course Outline, here is how your percentage mark is calculated, on which your final grade is based:
Assignments 25%, Labs 25%, Discrete Test 25% and Stats Test 25%.
In addition, there are two final (blackboard) tests, one for Discrete and one for Stats. Each of which can overwrite 5% of the associated sit-down test mark.
Videos Of Lectures
We record all lectures to video. To see videos of lectures, please follow the blackboard link in the menu to the left.
The Mathematics Help Desk is a good place]] to come and ask questions if you are having trouble understanding tutorial and/or assignment questions, or material covered in lectures or in your extended reading. You are welcome here any time.
Dr Howard Lukefahr
will run evening workshops, details under the people section.
There is more help available from Vic's Student Support. They will help you with ENGR123, and they can also help advise on study habits and how to pass courses. Take a look at their website:
You may not be able to solve these problems initially, but we'll build up skills to make them accessible.
