# Getting to Cambridge: STEP by STEP! watch

'innit. I'm putting a break on STEP till I'm done with FP3, so... I've got a few more pages and I'll be done with the whole of integration.
Oh yeah, 'cause you are doing one STEP paper a day right? I've been doing one question a day for months now (I think) so I don't think I need to stop now. You could do one question a day as well, if you want. It will probably only take you 20-30 minutes, haha!

Nah, I do one STEP paper a week. Like I said, my work ethic is shite.

because i want to go there and this thread is making me cringe
You probably won't meet your offer for Warwick anyway tbh, not sure why you're worried.

Took me far too long to spot the trick. Anyways, this requires two bouts of integration, the first one yields, with and :

Now, we bash it with IBP again, this time with and which gives us:

Clever bit:

So:

as required. Lovely.
Bravo! Now, show that this implies that

where are polynomials in of degree < 2n+1 with integer coefficients.

Hence, show that is irrational. Hint: put and by assuming that show that

is an integer that tends to zero as

Just kidding, looks lovely, prime procrastination material.
6. Update:

I've put away Greg's problem/extension for a bit, I'm far too groggy to think through it properly. In any case, I think I've finished the integration chapter in FP3, I just need to work through a few more exercises now.
7. love the title, and inspirational back story. Must take some time to read through the 9 pages.

Good luck! (not that you'll need it...)

Woot! Thanks. Good to have you onboard.

Brilliant.

That's still a question a day... and you know what they say... a question a day keeps Warwick away

Nice problem

Well... not really. I do the STEP paper in one go, so nothing for 6 days then 7 questions in one day.

and you know what they say... a question a day keeps Warwick away

Nice problem
Have you done it?
13. Update:

I'll do a proper update one of these days, with a nice long blog post. Anywho, think I'm going to get my FP2 June 2011 mock going now. Wish me luck!

15. FP2 Mock (June 2011):

So let's do some analysis (the boring kind, not the maths kind):

Total time: 59:20 Total raw: 75 Total UMS: 100

Q1: inequalities. Took longer than I should because I did it in two different ways to check my answer. I'll need to improve my speed here. 9:32
Q2: Taylor series solutions to DE's took far longer than I should have fixing a silly mistake. 6:05
Q3: Easy first order DE, happy with my time. 3:45
Q4: Telescoping sums, easy, took me longer than I'd like because I work slowly to avoid silly mistakes, it was an easy one as well, need to cut down on my time. 7:22
Q5: Complex loci, my solution was far longer than need be, not pleased at all. 10:07
Q6: Polar co-ordinates, mildly enjoyable. Did well on this one. 07:03
Q7: Easy C3 stuff, took me long because I graphed to see if I got all my solutions. 8:07
Q8: Easy second order DE, surprised I didn't make a silly slip, pleased with my time. 07:04

All-around, I think I did okay. Certainly lots of space for improvement with regards to my timing issue.

I raped

tl;dr for y'all.

You're welcome
