About me

I'm studying maths at the university of Exeter, which originally at the start of sixth form I wanted to do a career in physics but during my time there I decided maths was the subject I most enjoyed and the career I wanted to pursue. I still have a passion for physics and enjoy learning about it. I've had a lot of experience in both a level and GCSE exams with lots of advice on how to best approach both and what works best in my opinion and how I approached them. I have joined the maths and film societies, along with joining the university cycling, sailing and windriders club.

About my sessions

I try to teach in such a way that I try to get the student to try and think about what is happening in a problem rather than just learning how to do something; understanding how something works in both maths and physics is what progresses you to the top grades since understanding can help you to apply to a variety of problems rather than the minority of problems, this is what I try to put forward rather than just teach the content they need for the exam. As we learn more of the content and get more familiar with it I will start to do exam questions to get used to format and experience the different questions. Almost every week I will try to set homework from the previous week content to recap and build on what they learnt.

Questions Oliver has answered

You are given the equation of the line y=x^3+x^2-2x. Find the stationary points of the curve and determine the maximum and minimum points and find where it crosses the x-axis and thus sketch the graph

First differentiate the equation to find the equation of the tangents in terms of x. From this set dy/dx=0 because this is the stationary points, from this use the quadratic equation to find the value of x for the stationary points. Next differentiate again and substitute the values for the stationary points to determine the maximum and minimum points. The minimum and maximum points are determined by when dy/dx is greater than or less than 0To find the points when it crosses the x-axis substitute out x producing a quadratic which can be factorised which produces x=0, x=1,x=-2. From all these you can sketch the graph of yFirst differentiate the equation to find the equation of the tangents in terms of x.
