M301: TMA02 - Results

After the tutorial on Saturday I spent a couple of hours re-wording some of my answers, as I wasn't that I had explained some of the theories well enough. This re-wording was a couple of hours well spent as I got my results back for the TMA last night and was very pleased with the marks.

M301: TMA03

TMA03 for M301 is now available. It comprises of 5 questions with each question worth 20 marks and correspond to an associated unit within block 3.

After initial scan through of the TMA it looks like questions 1 and 2 involve some Java coding.

Read the questions carefully.

For example with M301 TMA02 the questions Q5.i.b, Q5.ii.b and Q5.iii.b, are different to the question Q2.iii.b, in how they are to be answered. Q2.ii.b requires a screen dump, whereas the Q5's require an extract of the output and an explanation. I nearly got caught out by just doing screen dumps for the Q5's, luckily I spotted my mistake this early.

One to try at home!

Came across the following video on BoingBoing, which then lead me to Steve Spangler's Science Experiment website. I am certainly going to have to give this a go, and will report back the results.
