What a fortnight this is/will continue to be!

Assessments at university in these two weeks include:

Heat Transfer – an assignment that’s not worth much in terms of grade percentages but needs to be done and will end up being over 20 pages long.

Engineering & the Environment (it’s not really a hippy environmental subject at all, but a general subject introducing a number of subjects that one can choose as electives the next year. It includes vibrations engineering, acoustics, noise control and some leftie stuff like eco-friendly design…). I have an assignment here too analysing a coffee maker from raw materials through production and use.

Mechatronics II – an assignment writing a program to control a X-Y plotter to write a letter of the alphabet.

Latin & Ancient Greek – study for a test this coming Friday. Includes present tense verbs; nouns in nominative, accusative, genitive, dative, ablative and vocative cases; adjectives; adverbs; questions; and negatives.

History of Modern France – a tutorial presentation and an essay. The tute presentation is on anti-clericalism in the 19th Century under the Third Republic. The essay is a historiographical essay comparing the perspective of two books written at least 20 years apart. The topic I have chosen here is Church and State in France from 1890 to 1914.

Needless to say it’s a broad range of assessments in a range of subjects which keeps me keen.
