Coursework 2
Question 2

a) For the curve with the equation y = x^3 + 3x^2 - 2

i) Find the position and nature of any stationary points.
ii) Make up tables of signs for y, y' and y''. Use these to help you make a sketch of the curve.

b) Using your sketch of the curve y = x^3 + 3x^2 - 2

i) Shade in the region representing S x^3 + 3x^2 - 2 dx 1 ---> -3
ii) Without evaluating the integral, explain why its value is zero.
iii) Evaluate the integral to confirm your answer.
