Ah right. Mine goes Y12: C1 and FP1, then C2, S1, M1, S2 and then Y13: C3, D1, M2, D2 then C4 and FP2. I think my head of maths is going to move some stuff around in the near future, he asked our class what we would recommend for the AS lot's applied modules.
We had very basic SUVAT, work, springs - we're doing the tiniest amount possible for circular motion now (F=mv2/r and that's all) and a bit of SHM. But I think OCR B's known for being a bit crap. I'm not brilliant at mechanics, I'd say I'm much better at the pure stuff.
No doubt you'll get through it quicker than me
I think I should, but then I'd have 5 lessons a week where I wouldn't be doing anything - I really doubt one of my C4 teachers would let me self-teach and the other one's lessons are usually pretty fun.
Ha, if we're basing our maths ability on that M2 exam then I'm destined to get a third, or fail my degree Bath and Exeter, or Exeter and something. Perhaps Bristol. I need offers from Bath and Bristol yet I know that I'll be going to whichever uni I firm anyway - I know I can get at least A*AA. Haven't actually visited any of them, although I've been to Bath itself a couple of times. What about you? I'm guessing Cambridge's going to be one of them.
We do it a bizarre way since everyone is required to take AS subjects through to A2.
Y12: C1-2 and S1, then C3, S2, FP1
Y13: C4, M1, D1, then M2, FP2-3
I'm doing D1 in June instead because I took M2 and FP2 early
I'm on AQA A - the AS had work, SUVAT, Hooke's law etc, and this A2 module includes circular motion, simple harmonic motion. So I was able to finish M2 ("finish" = over 95% on a past paper) 3 days after getting the book. But granted that was after digesting some Powerpoints a few months previous
I'm thinking of doing the same - we have M3-4 books but the school ditched them for lessons after one class was bad at Mechanics
Oh, I'd already done C3 and the class was moving slowly through C4 so I taught myself. Then I was all set - C4 is pretty straightforward so you could easily do the same
Lol, judging by how FP2 and M2 went that seems unlikely You got some ideas on firm/insurance?
I figured I'd move the conversation here so it didn't get too off-topic...
Does your school do A Level Maths then A Level Further Maths, or both AS then both A2? I kept finding bits of C3 in S2 and now I'm finding C4 integration in S3 which is a tad annoying. I still go to lessons although my C3 lessons really annoyed me because the teacher felt the need to 'correct me' if I hadn't finished the questions before handing books in, so I teach myself outside of lessons. What Physics board are you on? I'm on OCR B and there's barely any mechanics and it's all basic suvat/work done stuff. I showed my physics teacher that sliding/toppling question from the end of June '11 and he said it'd probably take him at least an hour to get it
I'll probably borrow the M3/4 book from my head of maths, I know he's got the books and I know they won't be used in lessons.
Wow (at the STEP last year). I had only just finished C2 by then I think I would have been more likely to apply to scarier unis and do STEP if I had C3 and C4 done last year instead of FP1 and the two applieds. But I swear you're going to be a maths god once you get to uni
....I was going to quote you here so you could actually see what I was responding to, but gah, character limit.
