1. Do I have to memorize Simpson's Rule for the Bursary examination?

No, the formula is provided. You just need to learn how to use it!

2. Is there any limit to the number of strips or intervals used when applying Simpson's Rule?

No, the more strips or intervals used the more accurate will be the area found although there must be an even number of strips.

3. Is the y1 an odd ordinate or an even ordinate?

It is a bit confusing, but y1 is an even ordinate because y0 is the first ordinate and therefore an odd ordinate!
