2 EXAMINATION 1 Short-answer questions (40 marks)
Questions are to be answered without the use of technology and without the use of notes Time Limit: 15 minutes reading time 60 minutes writing time

3 EXAMINATION 2 Part I: Multiple-choice questions
22 questions (22 marks) Part II: Extended response questions: 58 marks Time limit: 15 minutes reading time 120 minutes writing time

4 Examination Advice General Advice
Answer questions to the required degree of accuracy. If a question asks for an exact answer then a decimal approximation is not acceptable. When an exact answer is required, appropriate working must be shown.

5 Examination Advice General Advice
When an instruction to use calculus is stated for a question, an appropriate derivative or antiderivative must be shown. Label graphs carefully – coordinates for intercepts and stationary points; equations for asymptotes. Pay attention to detail when sketching graphs.

6 Examination Advice General Advice
Marks will not be awarded for questions worth more than one mark if appropriate working is not shown.

7 Examination Advice Notes Pages
Well-prepared and organised into topic areas. Prepare general notes for each topic. Prepare specific notes for each section of Examination 2. Include process steps as well as specific examples of questions.

8 Examination Advice Notes Pages
Include key steps for using your graphic calculator for specific purposes. Be sure that you know the syntax to use with your calculator (CtlgHelp is a useful APP for the TI-84+)

9 Strategy - Examination 1
Examination Advice Strategy - Examination 1 Use the reading time to carefully plan an approach for the paper. Momentum can be built early in the exam by completing the questions for which you feel the most confident. Read each question carefully and look for key words and constraints.

10 Strategy - Examination 2
Examination Advice Strategy - Examination 2 Use the reading time to plan an approach for the paper. Make sure that you answer each question in the Multiple Choice section. There is no penalty for an incorrect answer. It may be sensible to obtain the “working marks” in the extended answer section before tackling the multiple choice questions.

11 Strategy - Examination 2
Examination Advice Strategy - Examination 2 Some questions require you to work through every multiple-choice option – when this happens don’t panic!! Eliminate responses that you think are incorrect and focus on the remaining ones. Multiple Choice questions generally require only one or two steps – however, you should still expect to do some calculations.

12 Strategy - Examination 2
Examination Advice Strategy - Examination 2 If you find you are spending too much time on a question, leave it and move on to the next. When a question says to “show” that a certain result is true, you can use this information to progress through to the next stage of the question.

Question 1 The linear factors of the polynomial are ANSWER: B

20 Question 4 a) b)

21 Functions and Their Graphs
Vertical line test - to determine whether a relation is a function A represents the DOMAIN B represents the CODOMAIN (not the range!)

22 Interval Notation Square brackets [ ] – included
Round brackets ( ) – excluded

23 Maximal (or implied) Domain
The largest possible domain for which the function is defined A function is undefined when: a) The denominator is equal to zero The square root of a negative number is present. The expression in a logarithm results in a negative number.

24 Consider the function So the maximal domain is:

25 Using Transformations
When identifying the type of transformation that has been applied to a function it is essential to state each of the following: NATURE – Reflection, Dilation, Translation MAGNITUDE (or size) DIRECTION

26 1. Translations a) Parallel to the x-axis – horizontal translation. b) Parallel to the y-axis – vertical translation. To avoid mistakes, let the bracket containing x equal zero and then solve for x. If the solution for x is positive – move the graph x units to the RIGHT. If the solution for x is negative – move the graph x units to the LEFT.

27 2. Dilations a) Parallel to the y-axis – the dilation factor is the number outside the brackets. This can also be described as a dilation from the x-axis. Parallel to the x-axis – the dilation factor is the reciprocal of the coefficient of x. This can also be described as a dilation from the y-axis. Note: A dilation of a parallel to the y-axis is the same as a dilation of parallel to the x-axis.

28 3. Reflections a) Reflection about the x-axis b) Reflection about the y-axis c) Reflection about both axes d) Reflection about the line

125 Discrete Random Variables
A discrete random variable takes only distinct or discrete values and nothing in between. Discrete variables are treated using either discrete or binomial distributions. These values are usually obtained by counting. A continuous random variable can take any value within a given domain. These values are usually obtained through measurement of a quantity. Continuous variables are often treated using normal distributions.
