Ye have a test Wednesday 08/12/10. Please find attached a Sample

I will not be providing solutions to this sample. If you want solutions please attend the tutorial and ask me to do a question from the sample test.

Everything covered between Test 1 and the end of the year (01/12/10), *except applied maximum/ minimum problems and some of curve-sketching* (i.e. everything up to definition 4.5 in Wills’ notes MS2001. ) will be examinable. Essentially everything we did from Week 5 to this Monday 22/11/10 inclusive.

Question 1 (a) will have the same format as the sample, Question 1(b) will be taken from the exercise sheets, Question 2 from a past exam paper, and Question 3 will be on definitions & theorems (presented in class and also in Wills’ notes.

ThomasHey,

Will you be giving us the formulae for the product and quotient rules, or do we need to learn them off?

Thanks

J.P. McCarthyThomas,

I would have thought ye would have known them by now?

In an exam situation you will probably have access to tables, and they do have the formulae. However, for this test what is examinable is actually

morethan the formulae. You need to know the full details of the theorem (Proposition 4.1.4) rather than the formulae alone. e.g. Q. 1 (a) doesnotask you to differentiate the functions; it asks youwherethey are differentiable; at what points does exist. The formulae may suggest where exists, but only the full statement of Proposition 4.1.4 gives the whole story.For Q. 1(b) and 2 of this sample paper the formula for the quotient rule is not required.

J.P.
