About the Course

In this course, Professor Samir Siksek (University of Warwick) continues his discussion of differentiation for A-Level students in the second of his three-course series on this topic. In the first mini-lecture, we introduce important differentiation rules, including the product rule and the quotient rule. In the second mini-lecture, we practice applying the differentiation rules on trigonometric functions. In the third mini-lecture, we learn how to identify where a function is increasing and where it is decreasing using the derivative. In the fourth mini-lecture, we introduce stationary points, local maxima, and local minima.

About the Lecturer

Samir Siksek is a Professor of Mathematics at the University of Warwick. His research interests include Galois representations, modularity, explicit arithmetic geometry, arithmetic of curves and surfaces, Diophantine equations (the generalized Fermat equation in particular), and Waring's problem. In 2012, he appeared on BBC Radio 4’s In Our Time program discussing Fermat’s Last Theorem.
