AND TITLE Mathematics 1 CONVENOR(S)

QUESTION 1 Curve sketching: Spread of marks was very flat. The ratio of

polynomials sketch was done well, possibly because the method

is systematic. Part (c) was an odd function but many thought it

even.

QUESTION 2 Complex numbers: Generally very well-answered. Part (a)

almost always correct. Part (b) should be a one-liner using

Eulers formula, but a few took a page. Part (c) done well, again

a systematic method. Part (d) usually good but some forgot de

Moivres theorem.

QUESTION 3 Ordinary derivatives: Also generally very well answered.

QUESTION 4 Partial differentiation: First part answered well, but some

difficulty with obtaining critical points in the second part. The

number of critical points found varied from one to six! There

were five.

QUESTION 5 Integration: Integration by parts question didnt pose a

challenge, although some opted for the udv approach and took a

page when a couple of lines was all that was needed. Integration

by substitution was also fine, although often very messy. Use of

partial fractions was good.

QUESTION 6 Volumes and surfaces: Both parts of this question were drawn

from the problem sheets. Part (a) did have zero as the answer.

Part (b) was often poorly answered because an incorrect formula

for the area of the surface of revolution was quoted.

QUESTION 7 Series: The Taylor series and Binomial series parts were done

well. There seemed to be an exceptionally poor overall

understanding of the application and meaning of dAlemberts

test, although some found this part very easy. The LHpitals

rule question was also poorly answered by a sizeable minority

the detailed error features on this years problem sheet 0.

QUESTION 8 Fourier Series: Sketching was usually fine. My feeling is that

Fourier Series is perceived as being scary, when it is only the

application of a formula involving an integral. Moderate marks

overall, perhaps because this is the last topic of the semester.

QUESTION 9 Vectors: The most highly scoring question in the exam. This

question tests the standard vectorial manipulations and students

clearly know how to do these well.

Department of Mechanical Engineering

average. This was answered either very well (by some) or very

badly (by many). In the lectures I approached the ideas behind

such questions in a very pictorial manner, but it was clear that

this wasnt used in the question by very many at all, with

seemingly random formulae being applied. Very disappointing.

SUMMARY On the negative side, very many marks were lost because

algebraic manipulations went astray, often due to bad writing

habits. Formulae that I had earmarked and announced that

needed memorisation, such as the H-test for critical points of

surfaces or the area of surfaces of revolution, were misquoted.

On the positive side, my main aim for the paper was that should

have been of roughly the same standard as last years, but the

average was up by about 5% overall.
