We haven’t yet had a chance to go through the 2019 VCE exams, but this question was flagged to me independently by two colleagues: let’s call them Dr. Death and Simon the Likeable. It’s from Mathematical Methods Exam 2 (CAS). (No link yet.)

3e: I don’t understand how there’s a transformation in terms of x applied to a function in terms of t. And wouldn’t there also be an infinite number of solutions for a, b, c, d?

Thanks, Tau. Both points are spot-on.

Also, isn’t 3e grammatically senseless? An integral doesn’t have an area, it has a value. Whether or not that value represents an area is another matter entirely. Maybe?

Those were my thoughts too, Red Five. And even if you admit a charitable reading of the question, then you’re confronted with what Tau says above.

And we expect EAL students to cope with this???

RF, I’m not really concerned about EAL students for now. I don’t think EFL students have a hope of making sense of this garbage.
