# i love maths, who else got an A watch

Chain rule, yes. Nice and easy. I can't stand product rule though...

And I'm doing P6 as part of AS Further Maths, along with M1 and S2. Somehow I don't need to do P4 and P5. Don't ask me I'm a bit tipsy...
P6 is a 'stand alone' module that doesn't need knowledge of P4/5 -apparently.

Maskall, yes you're very good. Now I shall ask you some questions that will test your knowledge on Differentiation.

1) Differentiate y=(7x-4)^4 by first principle.

2) Differentiate y= (((5x+2)^3+6x^2)^1/3)/(9x^3-2)+6x-9*(6x+2)^1/3

Did anyone ask you for your module results? They're ok, do you want a medal?

they are impressive but boasting isnt good!
6. And neither is not answering the question when asked and just coming up with some numbers.

Yeah, that's what I was told when I was doing AS Further Maths (cos we were gonna do P4 and P6 and 1 applied, but didn't and did 2 applied instead). Although, looking at the stuff in P6 (Edexcel), it seems you might need a little knowledge of P4/P5 (like for Argand diagrams - P4 complex numbers and hyperbolic functions, which are in P5).

Why don't you answer my questions first.
9. I love maths inside out, but one thing I dislike about maths is the rivalry, especially on this forum. All these people giving there ums marks, they don't mean anything because there all either marked up or marked down. I can't be bothered competing with maths, as long as I can do it and I know that I can do it I feel that I don't need to prove it to anyone.

Very true. It doesnt get much better at Uni, I'm afraid.

Some people will try to turn everything into a willy waving contest...which is quite sad as they're usually the people with the least to wave :|

product rule?

thats just the same thing! you just do chain rule more than once then times stuff together and simplify everything!

???

hows is that?

saying that i didnt find GCSE that easy is boasting?
19. (Original post by mathematician)
thts cos u aint got the mind for it
too inteligent for ppl like u,
And you haven't got the mind for many other things I bet, doesnt make it so you aren't 'too intelligent' .

So, Mr 'I'm fantastic at Maths' , how about you give me some of your intelligent insight into exactly the foundations of maths are?
