### Syllabus

Differentiation â€¢ understand the gradient of a curve at a point as the limit of the gradients of a sequence of chords â€¢ use the derivative of xn, lnx, ex, sinx, cosx, tanx and constant multiples, sums/differences of these â€¢ find gradient of a curve at a point â€¢ find equation of tangent/normal to a curve at a point â€¢ use the product and quotient rules â€¢ use the chain rule to differentiate functions of the form f(g(x)) â€¢ understand that a derivative gives a rate of change â€¢ find the second derivative of a function â€¢ understand and be able to use the relationship dydxdxdy1= â€¢ find the first derivative of a function which is defined parametrically â€¢ find the first derivative of a function which is defined implicitly â€¢ use logarithmic differentiation â€¢ locate stationary points and distinguish between maxima and minima (by any method) Integration â€¢ understand integration as the reverse of differentiation; integrate xn (including n =âˆ’1) ex sinx cosx sec2x together with sums/differences and constant multiples of these â€¢ recognise integrands of the form kf â€˜(x)/f(x) and kf(x)f â€˜(x) and integrate â€¢ integrate expressions requiring linear substitution e.g. sin(ax+b) and double angle formulae e.g. cos2x â€¢ use integration to find a region bounded by a curve and two ordinates or by two curves â€¢ recognise where an integrand may be regarded as a product and use integration by parts to integrate â€¢ integrate rational functions using partial fractions â€¢ integrate simple functions in parametric form â€¢ use the mid-ordinate rule, the trapezium rule and Simpsonâ€™s rule to obtain approximate values for definite integrals â€¢ apply integration to find volumes of revolution about the x-axis, centroids of uniform laminae, mean and rms values of functions Differential Equations â€¢ formulate a simple statement involving a rate of change as a differential equation â€¢ find by integration a general form of a solution for a differential equation in which the variable are separable â€¢ use initial condition(s) to find a particular integral Vectors â€¢ know difference between a scalar and a vector â€¢ use vector notation to locate points in 3 dimensions â€¢ add, subtract and multiply by a scalar â€¢ use unit vectors, position vectors and displacement vectors â€¢ find modulus of a vector â€¢ calculate scalar product and use to find angle between two vectors and to show that vectors are parallel or perpendicular â€¢ calculate vector product, interpret as area of a parallelogram and as a vector perpendicular to two others
