First Year results

Got a 2:1 out of my first year! Not bad... I think I averaged around 65%. Although first year doesn't actually count for anything towards the degree it still helps to move onto bigger and better things!

Vectors and Matricies

For some reason vectors and matricies are very hard to get my head around....

Vectors - probably because they make no sense when you draw a 2D representation of a 3D plane or collection of planes or whatever. Especially because I can't draw.

Matricies - It's easy to learn methods to work out determinants and all the rest of it, but how are you supposed to fully understand them when they're just a collection of numbers without any application or use currently known to us?!?!?!?!?! I know they are used for things, but without knowing what, I know that I just won't remember all the formulae and techniques for manipulating them. Because my brain doesn't work on memorising equations then mindlessly putting in values..... anyway we'll see.....

The eight aims of university

Since I'm not really too sure about what to write for my first blog, I'll note down the 8 aims for my time at university that we were asked to write about in the first lecture....

1) Gain plenty of knowledge about all types of Engineering before deciding what I want to specialise in.

2) Achieve well throughout the course - or at least achieve the best I am capable of!

3) Get friends for life.

4) Get involved with plenty of social circles.

5) Learn from others and listen to their different perspectives on situations.

6) Become known and respected.

7) Learn how to be creative and use my knowledge to innovate

8) Take the first steps towards my ultimate goal: To solve the energy crisis
