# New Material

The material that was additional to previous years was:

- Closed Interval Method (note that Wills does define Critical points – however we define critical points on closed intervals and include the endpoints)
- First Derivative Test
- Asymptotes

Past paper questions on maxima and minima *on closed intervals* can (in general) be answered using the Closed Interval Method.

Past paper questions on maxima and minima on more general sets (including the entire real line) can (in general) be answered using the First Derivative Test.

Finally we use asymptotes to help in curve sketching.

Section 4 from Problems has examples of questions on this new material.

J.P. McCarthyKatelyn,

There are a set of tables attached to the exam paper. I will edit the above piece to show what these tables are.
