EDIT: The following tables will be attached to your exam paper:

I had considered drafting a sample paper for ye however on mature reflection I’ve realised that this is unnecessary. The main reason for giving a sample is to show the layout of the paper so there are no nasty surprises and because the exam layout will be the same as in years 2007 — 2010, there is no need for a sample paper.

New Material

The material that was additional to previous years was:

  1. Closed Interval Method (note that Wills does define Critical points – however we define critical points on closed intervals and include the endpoints)
  2. First Derivative Test
  3. 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.
