[M373-1] status: started

Started ( unofficially ) on M373 today using the unit-1 course sample.

Unit 1 is called 'Introduction to Iterative Methods.' and is a repeat and continuation of MS221 B1 Iteration. The Newton Raphson method is also discussed which was part of MST121/MS221.

Proofs of theorems are given ( of course ) but questions on the exam will not be about proofs. The emphasis is on 'hands-on' calculation using computers where possible. Again, the use of MathCad is encouraged.

Haven't finished the unit yet, have to do more exercises.


  1. hi i follow you blog for the last year and i just enrolled in M208 can you give a rough idea how many hours work you put in each week

  2. I haven't recorded the time I spent on M208, so I can't say. It's a 60 point course, the average you are expected to put in is 16 hours a week during 8 months.

(Raumpatrouille – Die phantastischen Abenteuer des Raumschiffes Orion, colloquially aka Raumpatrouille Orion was the first German science fiction television series. Its seven episodes were broadcast by ARD beginning September 17, 1966. The series has since acquired cult status in Germany. Broadcast six years before Star Trek first aired in West Germany (in 1972), it became a huge success.)
