    My brain is dead, can you carry on with the du/dx bit? I just can't get it right. And I don't get the (0.5) before the INT
    OK, we have INT 2xsin6x

    Using the substitution u = 2x, 1/2du = dx and sin6x = sin3u

    So we now have INT 1/2 usin3u du = 1/2 INT usin3u

    Either you're damn good, damn patient, or you got damn good software
    My age keeps me patient, and I've got some good software too. That was a prog called MathType I just used - great for maths symbols etc.

    Hard!
    You'll need a good honours degree (good == 1st or 2.1) to keep the pace.
    I gave up in the 2nd year. Now I'm thinking about it again. At the moment I'm just revising my interest in maths and I'll see what happens then.
    If you want to do the MSc, chat to lots of others - students and tutors/lecturers. See what kind of work load you will meet - and also do you really need to do it!
    If you spend a couple of years doing a 2nd degree, you may lose out a bit in your career. Get lots of advice.

    Thanking you. I'm interested in the idea, I'll most probably take the BSc and run but if I find I really want to pursue it further I'll try. I know I won't need it as such but I may want it, I'll decide nearer the time.
