INDUCTION!!!! ALL THAT INTEGRATION!!!! EVEN FUNCTIONS! WTF!

Looking at the paper, 20 marks are for integration based questions. IMO, that's INSANE.

I cant believe SQA have such huge variations, in the difficulty level. My teacher told me the paper was ridiculous, guess tha makes me feel better.

Someone needs to explain to sqa what exams are. They are suppose to test your knowledge at a MODERATE level.

Not suppose to trick you in every other question and leave you gobsmacked in general

if q13 was the induction one then i think i got that right

i binned my paper on the techers desk so if someone can type it up ill give you the correct answer

whos the 90-100 marks guy

what a geek

there had to be one! Who ever thinks they got that is well sad.

Nothing!!!!!!!!

i jus feel as though ive wasted a year at school!!!!! what were the grade boundaries for last year?

plus how did u do that question i + 1/1+i.

damm that last question was off putting

you never know mate

someone might have got lucky with the qs they revised

guess so

the last question was SAD

Nothing!!!!!!!!

The square matrices A and B are such that AB=BA. Prove by induction that

for all integers n=>1.

Nothing!!!!!!!!

well i think i got about 53% at the most and i was 1 mark off an A in the prelim

my teacher, a former setter of the Ah paper said it is the hardest paper he has ever seen, way harder than the 2002 paper where the pass marks were as follows

A - 66%

B - 53%

C - 41%

so i hope they drop again for this year and i should get a good B

yeh thats where I got it from. Where was the de moivres theorem or binomial theorem - asymtotes why couldnt it have been heres the equation you figure out the rest instead of heres the values you work out the trest yourself

cool, i didnt realise they pushed them down that much

the last question of what I got of it relies this rule.

where does that rule come from?

From higher:

Rearranging gives the form.

so there is no half x in it?

Nothing!!!!!!!!

that must mean they will drop the pass mark

The Gaussian Elimination Qu had an infinite number of solutions as

x=1

y=z+2

z=y-2

of something like that

x=1

y=z+2

z=y-2

of something like that

That was a paper from HELL

But if you look carefully it's not that bad coz it was possible to do it, Q17 simplifies neatly if you are careful with b) then it's fine..

Should Gaussian be x=1 and y=2z+1 ?

Anyway here are my results:

1. ... can't be bothered to write it down

2a) 1/((2+x)(1+x)^(.5))

2b) (-3lnx)/(9x^2)

3. z=.5 - .5i

Arg(z)= -pi/4

|z|= .5(2)^(.5)

4. dy/dx = (1-y)/x

d2y/dx^2 = (2y-2)/x^2

5. 2^1/3

6. 3ln|x^4-x^2+1| +C

7. a) Proof by induction

When you get to a certain stage it was like 3(k^2+k) or sth anyway you have to do another proof that k^2+k is divisible by 2, then it works

b) counterexample - 2

8. y = sinxe^(-x)

9. x = 1

y = 2z +1

10. T = 60C (??)

11. dy/dx = -1/(1+x^2)

12. ... this was the simpliest one

13. Proof by induction.

14. a) Odd

b) = 2xsinx + 2cosx - (x^2)cosx + C

c) - 4 - (2^(.5))((pi^2)/16)-(pi/2)-2)

15. Plane 2x + y - z = 3

Q (0, 2.5, -.5)

Distance: ((14)^(.5))/2

16. a) r= (x+1)/(x-2)

b) Sn = -(1/3)x(x+1)(1-((x+1)(x-2))^n)

c) for x < .5

S to infinity = x(x+1)/(-3)

17. Just be careful, integration by parts a couple of times and it works.

Anyone had these results?

cheers

They're gonna lower the grade boundaries anyway.

take care

Stupid question = do you lose marks for not doing graphs on the graph paper provided?

Roll on ze gap year !!
