Part IA lectures on Computational Projects (CATAM)

[Link back to Computer-Aided Teaching of All Mathematics (CATAM)]

Materials for the Easter term 2017 lectures will appear here shortly.  There will be some small changes this year, but last year's materials (still available below) will give you an idea of what to expect.

All lectures will be held on Tues/Thurs at 10:00 in the Cockcroft Lecture Theatre (On click, map opens in new tab/window).

You may wish to right-click on the links below to save the files to your computer.  You will be prompted to log in via Raven.

Here we provide the materials used for the Easter term 2016 lectures along with the slides shown and the code demonstrated. You should be able to click on the lecture title to access a PDF file. There will be 1 PDF file for each topic (e.g. all the notes for Gaussian elimination are given by the link for lecture 5, even though we continued the discussion into lecture 6).
