### The Saga goes on – Still Picking My 3rd Year Modules

So…... I’m not sure anymore.
Went to the first Consolidation lecture today and found out I only need to do 57 CATS of Maths this year SO I’ve decided to thin down my maths and look elsewhere for interesting and most importantly EASY modules.

Here’s the list of definites so far:

Term 1:
MA397 – Consolidation – 15 CATS
MA3E5 – History of Maths – 15 CATS

Term 2:
MA228 – Numerical Analysis – 6 CATS
MA3F2 – Knot Theory – 15 CATS
IE420 – Problem Solving – 12 CATS
PX261 – Mathematical Methods II – 7.5 CATS

which is 69.5 CATS and only 51 of List A Maths.

So my options are

Term 1:
1 or 2 from
*MA390 – Topics in Math Bio – 15 CATS
*MA3F1 — Introduction to Topology – 15 CATS
*MA3G0 — Modern Control Theory – 15 CATS

which takes me nicely to 66 CATS of Maths and 85.5 Overall (If I do just 1 of these 3).

Then my other options are

Term 1:
PX268 – Stars – 7.5 CATS
ES3C9 – Fundamentals of Fluid Mechanics for Mechanical Engineers – 15 CATS
(Which was suggested by the Consolidation Tutor although it may not be this module exactly)

Term 2:
PX269 – Galaxies – 7.5 CATS
PX270 – C Programming – 7.5 CATS (I think this is pretty much a definite)

so if I take C Programming I have 93 CATS so need really 27 more which can be either 2×6 CATS and a 15 or 2×7.5 and a 12 or any combination really. I can overcat slightly if needs be so taking Fluid Dynamics still leaves me with either both stars and galaxies to do or I need to find 12 CATS from somewhere. Possibly from The Business School.

Nearly there (I hope)

1. Somone has also suggested

Term 2:
PX264 – Physics of Fluids

and I can’t do the Fluid Dynamics courses that were listed by my consolidation tutor (ES30A, ES30B and ES30D) so if I still want to do Fluid Dynamics it’ll have to be ES3C9 which is “Fundamentals of Fluid Mechanics for Mechanical Engineers” which I think is it’s replacement.

I think I’m going to drop Modern Control Theory after missing the first lecture and struggling with a friends notes for an hour or two. It also clashes with at least 3 other things I’m doing so I guess it’sbest dropped. That leaves one more of HoM, ItT and TiMB to drop. depending on the lecturer for Topics in Math Bio it could be that or Topology (after my poor performance in Metric Spaces last year).

I am determined to get them picked and my timetable sorted out by the time I head off the cricket social on Wednesday

2. Hi,

I failed Metric last year but was convinced to go to Intro to Topology by friends and I’m glad I did, we had a really good lecture and you seem to go over a lot of the metric stuff again so I’d say at least give it a try.
