STEP 2 Curve Sketching


This module introduces you to STEP questions which involve Curve Sketching. You will find it helpful to complete the "STEP 2 Calculus" module first.

This STEP 2 module consists of 4 STEP questions, some topic notes and useful formulae, a "hints" sheet and a "solutions" booklet.

STEP questions are challenging, so don't worry if you get stuck. These STEP 2 modules assume that you have already begun to develop your problem-solving skills and approach to STEP questions by working on the Foundation modules. You can also ask for support, help and hints on the STEP Support discussion forum.

About this assignment

Curve sketching is a very useful tool, and can often be helpful when solving equations, inequalities, or trying to find maxima and minima. STEP questions may not ask you to draw a graph, but you should always consider whether this might be a useful approach.
