1. Hi i was just wondering if anyone could advise me on how to actually do well in A2 maths
ive done all the Solomon papers up unit J for c4 now and im still struggling to answer questions !
i cant get my head around
- differentiation and rates of change
- manipulating trig equations in relation to c4
- integration as in being able to identify which integration needs to be used when
2. Differentiation is the bread and butter really, if you don't understand that then you need to watch videos, practice - go to www.madasmaths.co.uk there are loads of differentiation questions, also questions on related rates of change, integration (all types) etc. there's loads of stuff

heres a tip for C4 integration, whenever you see sin^2x or cos^2x
think of the formula Cos2x=1-2sin^x and rearrange to integrate. You probably may already know this but yeah!
