    I am feeling reasonably confident, this is one of my nicer modules. I need full UMS though, so that will be tough.

    I am also doing C4, M1, FP2, NM. I have already done FP3, D1 and M2 this exam season. Long way to go...
    Ah, good luck i'm sure you can get full ums! And good luck in your other exams, it will all be over soon lol...

    I'm taking up further maths next year so hopefully I won't have to retake any of this years exams alongside it

    Can't do proof at all. The jan 12 proof I don't understand like what does that even mean. 'prove or disprove: no cube of an integer has 2 as its units digit' ehhh?

    Oh wow. And there I was trying to throw algebra at it. great. I really am not good at proof :/ Thanks for that

    If it looks complicated it's probably not true, so you have to find a counterexample QED is Latin, "quod erat demonstrandum", meaning "which had to be proven (has been proved)". It's something nerds like me say

    The only bit I don't 'get' in C3 is the when you have two curves, and you're asked to calculate the area of the shaded region - do we just minus the two area?

    Jan 12 had a really tricky one where you had to use a rectangle - integral to find the area.

    Can anyone help?

    I did this paper a couple days ago! You only need one integration for both questions, the other areas you can work out geometrically as they are triangles and rectangles.

    The best proof is an algebraic proof. However you can also prove by exhaustion.

    That's the bit I don't understand, I couldn't figure out how a rectangle - integral would give the area.

    I'm assuming this is 9iv)

    Consider the line x=2, and the horizontal line that passes through Q. These lines (and the x and y axes) make a rectangle. f(x) and g(x) are inverse functions, so the same applies to g(x)

    So this unit is basically 70% Integration + Differentiation (Calculus)

    I really like questions like 'show that the exact area of the shaded region shown in Fig. X is bla bla'

    Because in the end you'll realise whether your steps were right / wrong

    Is there a quick way or rule to know when to use integration by substitution or by parts? Thanks

    If its one x term, sub.
    If there's more than 1, parts.
