Exercise 17A.1 question 2

Exercise 17A.2 questions 1, 2, 4, 6

Exercise 17B questions 1, 2, 5, 8, 9, 10, 13

On **Monday, December 11th** we’ll have a test on applications of derivatives (Chapters 16 and 17 from our textbook).

**Update**: You can a collection of suggested review questions (and solutions) on the SL Resources page. These will be a very good resource to use when preparing for the test.

Following our discussion on Thursday, the test on Exponents and Logarithms (Chapters 3 and 4 in our textbook) will be on **Tuesday, November 28th**. Calculators will be permitted.

**Review Questions**

Exercise 3D.2 questions 1ade, 2 adg, 3a

Review Set 3A questions 2, 5, 9, 11

Review Set 3C questions 10, 11

Review Set 4A questions 1abf, 2–5, 7, 8, 11, 12

Review Set 4B questions 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10

Review Set 4C questions 2, 7, 8, 9

There are two files linked below: the first contains questions only, and the second contains both questions and solutions (one of the questions will be familiar). You might want to use the questions below as an at-home practice test. Give yourself about one hour to answer the questions, then check your answers.

Complete the following questions before class on Monday (these questions will be useful as part of your preparation for the test on Tuesday).

Exercise 4E 1, 3, 6abe, 7a

Exercise 4F 1ab, 3a, 4

Exercise 4H 1, 7, 8, 11

Complete the following for our next lesson.

Exercise 16D.1 questions 2cf, 3efh, 9

Exercise 16D.2 questions 1, 2

Review Set 16C question 13

On **Friday, November 24th** we’ll have a test on trigonometric equations and identities (this includes all of the material we’ve covered on trigonometry, but does not include the sine and cosine rules, which will come on the next test).

To prepare for this test, I suggest you look at the review sets in Chapters 10, 12, and 13, and also have a look at Chapter 7 in the Pearson textbook.

In class we defined a *stationary point*, and noted that a stationary point may be a local maximum or a local minimum. There is, however, a third option, as illustrated by the function \(f(x)=x^3\) when \(x=0\). While the function does have a stationary point at \(x=0\), it is neither a local maximum, nor a local minimum, instead, it’s called a *point of inflection*.

**Read Section 16C, then try questions 1 and 2ac in Exercise 16C before our class on Wednesday.**

After having solved *The Ambiguous Case*, try the following questions tonight.

Exercise Set 11C.2, questions 1, 3, 5, and 9

Use the laws of logarithms to answer the following questions for the start of our next class on Thursday.

Exercise 4C.1 questions 1adghko, 2adg, 3ad, 4de, 5ad, 6abde, 7c Exercise 4C.2 questions 1aef, 2ace, 4abd
