    Be careful of expressing your love for Maths in public, it's often considered taboo. I was considered quite weird for calling Differential Equations sexy on a STEP lecture, let alone anywhere else...
    Hmm. I'm surprised!

    Not necessarily; just because you're doing STEP doesn't mean you're not allowed preferences! DE's are one of my preferred topics but this isn't true for everyone - the only constant is that nobody likes vectors. :lol:
    I mean, I didn't think one would be considered weird amongst other mathematicians for liking a certain part of maths unless no one else liked DEs are all

    What's so bad about vectors? Are STEP vector questions really weird or something?

    I suppose dislike of vectors comes hand-in-hand with dislike for Geometry.

    Can anyone tell me how to get a reduction formula for this integrand?

    Yet another C2 thing I'm unsure about. I'm getting worried!

    Hmm, what's there to be unsure about? Seems pretty straightforward imo.

    STEP vector questions are just generally poorly done, possibly because they're not taught particularly well at A Level and below. They can also be aimed a bit too high at times.

    That's the thing though - I don't dislike geometry, although a lot of STEP candidates do. I do tend to avoid vectors questions more than any other topic though.

    Find the term without x. So a number, not an unknown.

    What's the coefficient of the term when it's x^0 or 1.

    Its better if you get some sleep and rest now as you don't want to be tired for your exam. Also if you find something you can't do now then it'll just stress you out so its best if you don't do anymore, just have a look at the proof before you go in and best of luck for tomorrow, you'll ace it!
