**Draft submission due: Friday 9 September

Final submission (worth 15%) due: Friday 14 October

See over the page for further instructions

**1. This question is intended to embed our techniques with planes into a physical scenario.
**

(a) Find the longitude, latitude and altitude of your home, H, of a building on campus of

your choice, B, and of your favourite place in Perth, P (see notes 1 and 2 below).

(b) Let x, y and z be variables measuring in the east, north, and upwards directions, respec-

tively. Find both the vector equation and the cartesian equation of a plane that passes

through H, B and P . Explain your method as you work through it.

(c) Find a vector equation describing where your plane from (b) intersects sea level, z = 0.

(d) How far is Rottnest Island from your plane?

(e) Comment on the the results you have found: do they make sense physically? What are

some possible limitations or assumptions in what you have done?

**2. This question is intended to guide you through some independent research of integrals.

(a) Not every integral can be evaluated analytically. For example, e−x dx cannot be

expressed in terms of elementary functions.

(i) Write down what (if anything) you already know about this integral. Do some

research to learn something about it that you didn’t know before, and write a brief

explanation as though you were explaining it to someone else in the class.

(ii) Consider each of the techniques of integration we have learnt, and explain why they

do not work for this integral — you can do this in words, or by attempting to apply

the technique and showing where they fail, or some combination.

(b) Find or create another integral that also cannot be solved by the techniques of integration

we have covered. Select a region of integration, and consider the definite integral.

(i) List the integral, and justify why our known techniques cannot solve it.

(ii) Investigate a method of numerical integration (see note 3 below) and apply it to

your definite integral, explaining the method as if you were explaining it to a peer.

You do not need to graph the exact function for this purpose, but you will need to

calculate its value at specific points to approximate the integral.

(iii) Discuss the error involved in your approximation: how can it be estimated from the

numerical integration, how can it be calculated, and how could it be improved?

Note 1: The following website may help: www.gps-coordinates.net Convert all units to kilometres,

making the assumption that one degree of longitude or latitude corresponds to 100km (an over-

simplification, but helpful for the numbers). Round the first two coordinates to the nearest kilometre.

Note 2: If your favourite place in Perth is Rottnest Island, please choose a different place.

(and if your favourite place in Perth is a building on campus, you need to get out more . . . )

Note 3: Numerical integration is also called “approximate integration”. The textbook §7.7 covers

three methods: the Midpoint Rule, the Trapezoidal Rule, and Simpson’s Rule. You can choose one

of these, or any other one you can find. Please cite all references used.

students must excel in the following: • apply a valid method for solving each problem • demonstrate all methods thoroughly Method 4 marks • explain why each integration technique does not work • explain a technique of numerical integration • demonstrate correct algebraic manipulations • perform accurate numerical calculations Accuracy 4 marks • present correct and complete final answers • demonstrate strategies for verifying accuracy • show clear understanding of the questions and context • clearly explain all work and reasoning Communication 5 marks • cite references for all external sources • present work clearly and neatly • respond thoroughly to feedback following draft • use correct mathematical notation in all instances Notation 2 marks • clearly define all variables introduced TOTAL: 15 marks . or handwritten (and scanned).g. for feedback only. due Friday 9 September.

This will allow for electronic feedback to be sent back to you directly.

The process will consist of three phases: 1. Draft submission. communication and notation.
