Hey my teacher was going thru some year 2 mechanics stuff with my class recently and he said that some of the integration questions that don't require your working out can be done by calculator only.

I want to know what the extent of this is? Like in a pure exam, would I be able to just type in the integration into a calculator and just get the 7 marks that question is worth without doing any working out (again doesn't explicitly say anywhere that it is required).

edit: (also please let me know if you have done this before and what the out come was)

No you wouldn’t get 7 marks for that. Even though on occasions you may not need working for a particular part of a question, you should always show working to be on the safe side. Definitely use your calculator to check your answers though.

What your teacher said feels a bit risky to me. Was their a particular example that they were talking about?

i mean that question was only like 2 - 3 marks so i guess that is worth putting straight into a calculator lol. I will not be taking the risk for those 7 marks though lol thank you for that
