MAV REVISION LECTURE MATHEMATICAL METHODS UNITS 3 AND 4 Presenter: MICHAEL SWANBOROUGH Flinders Christian Community College
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
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 EXAMINATION 2
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.
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.
Examination Advice General Advice Marks will not be awarded for questions worth more than one mark if appropriate working is not shown.
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.
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+)
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.
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.
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.
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 where a, b and c are three different positive real numbers. The equation has exactly a) 1 real solution b) 2 distinct real solutions c) 3 distinct real solutions d) 4 distinct real solutions e) 5 distinct real solutions B

Question 4 a) b)
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!)
A function is undefined when: a)The denominator is equal to zero b)The square root of a negative number is present. c)The expression in a logarithm results in a negative number. Maximal (or implied) Domain The largest possible domain for which the function is defined
Consider the function So the maximal domain is:
Using Transformations NATURE – Reflection, Dilation, Translation MAGNITUDE (or size) DIRECTION When identifying the type of transformation that has been applied to a function it is essential to state each of the following:
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.
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. b)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.
3.Reflections a) Reflection about the x-axis b) Reflection about the y-axis c) Reflection about both axes d) Reflection about the line

Solving indicial equations Step 1:Use appropriate index laws to reduce both sides of the equation to one term. Step 2:Manipulate the equation so that either the bases or the powers are the same. Step 3:Equate the bases or powers. If this is not possible then take logarithms of both sides to either base 10 or base e.

Calculating Area Sketch a graph of the function, labelling all x-intercepts. Shade in the region required. Divide the area into parts above the x-axis and parts below the x-axis. Find the integral of each of the separate sections, using the x-intercepts as the terminals of integration. Subtract the negative areas from the positive areas to obtain the total area.

Area between curves
Sketch the curves, locating the points of intersection. Shade in the required region. If the terminals of integration are not given – use the points of intersection. Check to make sure that the upper curve remains as the upper curve throughout the required region. If this is not the case then the area must be divided into separate sections. Evaluate the area.

b) ii) A repeated root at x = -1 indicates that the normal is a tangent to the curve at this point.
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.

Markov Chains A Markov chain is a chain of events for which the probabilities of outcomes or states depend on what has happened previously. Tree diagrams are a useful tool for solving problems.

Draw a diagram, clearly labelling the mean. Shade the region required. Use either the appropriate symmetry properties or a calculator to find the required probability Remember that: Solving normal distribution problems
Volunteers for a weight loss program have weights which are normally distributed with a mean of 100 kg and a standard deviation of 8 kg. One person is selected at random. The probability that this person’s weight is over 110 kg is approximately Question 72
Applications of the normal distribution Draw a diagram, clearly shading the region that corresponds to the given probability. Use the symmetry properties of the curve to write down the appropriate z value. Use the inverse normal function to find the required probability and the corresponding z value. Use the relationship to calculate the required x value.

The packing process produces packets whose weight is normally distributed with a standard deviation of 3 grams. In order to guarantee that only 1% of packets are under the labeled weight, the actual mean weight (in grams) would be required to be closest to a) 243b) 247c) 250d) 254e) 257
