*Before Trying To Solve Differential Equations, You Should First Study Help Sheet 3:** **Derivatives & Integrals**.*

- Example: a function of one variable. Here

f(x) = x3 - 4x2 + x - 3

> readlib(extrema);

> f:= x^3 - 4*x^2 + x - 3;

The Mathematics Olympiad at Kettering is a competition designed to identify and encourage students with interests and abilities in mathematics. This will be the 10th Olympiad held at Kettering. Our goal is to develop the Olympiad into one of the most prestigious mathematical competitions in the region. The examination is designed for students in grades 9 through 12. However any student working towards a high school degree who is currently enrolled in a public school, private school or a home-school program can sit for the examination.
