How many questions can you answer in this question paper? TRANSFORMS&PARTIAL DIFFERENTIAL


I can't complete my Engineering course since I failed in 2 subjects. Below is one of them (MA2211 - TRANSFORMS AND PARTIAL DIFFERENTIAL EQUATIONS). How many questions can you answer in it?

If I don't reply to you, it's NOTHING PERSONAL. It's my ANXIETY.

My Engineering Course is 3 years (its actually 4 years but I joined 2nd year directly since people who completed a diploma course are allowed to).

There will be 2-semester exams per year. Each semester has like 5 Subjects. So, 10 subjects/exams per year.

If a student fails any of the subjects then he/she has to rewrite it along with the exams on the newer subjects in the following semester.

My 3-year course ended in 2016. I had failed in like 22 subjects on the course end.

But even the students who finished their 3-year course (but failed) can still appear and write exams for their failed subjects for every 6 months for the next 3 years.

I was attending the exam until 2019. Got passed in those 20 subjects. But can't pass in 2 of them. So much frustration.

Oh I could answer all of them alright. Just not correctly.

It depends on how I am allowed to answer them.

If I am allowed to answer them with this post, then I can answer all of them right now.

Differential equations is definitely used as one of the filters in engineering courses. It pretty quickly sifts people who never really grasped the basics of calculus and algebra.

That said, Fourier transforms aren't terribly difficult. In fact, by the time you get Fourier transforms you're happy to see something that's going to make your life easier. Just make sure you understand algebra and calculus. To be fair if you're American we're notoriously bad at teaching math, and our math literacy is well below what's considered to be proficient. We also have a culture where not knowing basic math skills like algebra is acceptable and just means "ur not one dem nerds".

Yeah, it is one of the hard subjects in the course. But its not that hard for the people who loves maths.

The real "math people" are the people who choose math as their major. To everyone else it's just a tool.

That's my point of view as an engineering student. I view math as an appliance.



To answer OP, most of those questions went right over my head. I believe I can answer a few of them but I would have to do quite a bit of review first.

What is the most important thing you can be doing right now, and why aren't you doing it?
Training is nothing! Will is everything! The will to act.
Often a 80% plan executed right away is better than a 100% plan executed later.
You think that's air you're breathing now?

Quite difficult questions. I probably wouldn't give up either
