Please write your work on A4 lined paper, and hand it in (marked by yourself) at the start of the September term. These problems aim to:
- help bed in your knowledge of the method of differences
- help you retain the little about Maclaurin series we had time to do at the end of the summer term
- practise the sort of mathematical thinking which will be especially useful to you if you decide to try the extra exams, MAT or STEP, or if you just want to be a better mathematician generally
Because we had so little time on Maclaurin series, there are some reminder notes about it at the end of the task sheet.
