    Hi all,

    I'm a first year student in engineering, my grades have been fine so far (on average 60-70%) but this final Mathematics assignment is worth 60% of the overall module. There's eleven questions, all based on completely different topics, and even though I've been to most of the lectures and seminars I am finding this assignment more challenging than those before, if not impossibly difficult. At the very least, I want to pass, but I'm struggling to believe that I will manage that.

    What can I do? I hope I haven't been too vague, I'm not in a great mood as you might imagine.

    Two suggestions:

    (i) Talk to your personal tutor or director of studies or equivalent. See if they can offer any advice.

    (ii) Post a question on here and see if we can get you started.

    I would speak to someone about the questions. Maybe ask some friends or a tutor for some help.
    If you cant do it by yourself then thats the next best option for you.

    Don't post any questions on here if this work counts towards your degree. It would be classed as cheating.

    Thanks for your suggestions everyone. I've emailed my course tutor about it, hopefully she can give me a helping hand. I struggled with Maths (with Mechanics) for some time at A-Level, so my confidence has taken a bit of a knock. Engineering Maths is still challenging, but I was comfortable with the three previous assignments (worth 10% each).

    Indeed it won't be possible for me to share questions, but the general areas in which I need a bit more practice tend to be related to mechanics or statistics - circular motion and forces, De Moivre's theorem, standard deviation and first/second order differentials.
