• Type 2

This type of question asks you to differentiate a given equation and then find the

gradient of the graph of the function at a given point. To do this, first

differentiate using the standard formula on the formula sheet and then substitute

in the x co-ordinate given.

and determine their nature. To do this you have to differentiate to find the

gradient and then find where the gradient is zero. Then differentiate again to

find

determining the nature of a turning point. i.e. look at the sign of the gradient just

before and just after the turning point, then use the following,

Sign of gradient Type of turning point

stationary point of inflection, this occurs when 0

n.b. 2 You can also differentiate fractional and negative indices, just use the same

standard rules.

• Type 4

This type of question asks you to find the equation of either the tangent or the

normal to a given equation at a given point. To do this, follow these steps.

Step 0: Sub the x value into the original equation to find the corresponding y

vaule. (You might be able to miss this step out if you already know from the

question what the y value is)

Step 1: Differentiate original curve.

Step 2: Sub in the x value. This gives you the value of m.

Stap 2(b): (Only do this step if trying to find normal.) Turn the gradient upside

down and change the sign.

Step 3: Write out y=mx+c but with your number value for m.

Step 4: Sub in the point to find the value of c.

Step 5: Write out y=mx+c with your values of m and c in.

• Type 5

If a questions asks if a function is increasing, must show it has a positive

gradient.

If a questions asks if a function is decreasing, must show it has a negative

gradient.

• Type 6 Proving a result

This type of question asks you to find the areas on graphs. Remember any area

under the x axis will come out negative. This means in many questions you will

need to divide the area up into sections and find each bit individually. Question

may ask for area between two curves, in this case subtract the two equations and

integrate the resulting function between the limits (normally found by finding

the intersection of the two curves. Finally remember the two formulae

∫

ydx

is the area between the curve and the x axis.

• Type 4

Given the gradient of a curve and one point one the curve, you are asked to find

the equation of the curve. To do this, you have to integrate the gradient function

and then substitute in the point to find the value of the unknown constant.

Sequences and series

formula as on formula sheet.

common ratio and the first term.

only contains one trigonometric function. This can be achieved using

trigonometric identities. i.e. If have 1

• Sketch the appropriate graph (either
