first question 7 things relevant to model
make a table including attractions and the tidal requirements
second question get selection sheet working pretty much
third question use a formula they give you to work out a route for a month in august
fourth question make a handover on how to use the spreadsheet include scrnshots
Think I can get selection working and do report and depth requirements! Do they actually just give you the formula for August? No working out sine or anything? Also what do you say about the data sources like what points? How was the timing? Thank you so much

No, I have done the imported data with the pre release; another sheet in excel i saw needed calculations about phase angles not related to that previously imported data. any clarification? I think it was for august.
that'll be the august tides. use october tides sheet to figure it out

last question: do we need to do any calculations using sine and cosine rules?
im not really a mathematical man so if cosine and sine are just cos and sin then yeah you use them in activity 3
4. whats the sin and cos thing?

I am retaking as well! Exam is tomorrow and kinda nervous because I need a good grade and dont want to forget the main formula and crumble under the pressure, but thus year doesn't seem like theres one formula which is the be all and end all And my pre release actually works, but go no idea about this sine thing and I do a level maths? Any help would be greatly appreciated as kinda desperate ngl haha
Everyone worries about the pi, cos and sine however it will tell what to do. For pi for the formula should be. =(b31*(pi ()*4))/30. B31 is just an example it will tell you what cell to use) The formuals for cos and sine tell you how to do it. They will be if statements.

Pi ()
Cos ()
Sin() or Sine () forgot one of the two

DON'T FORGET THE BRACKETS.

16. What did everybody put for the data sources question? Think it's activity 1C?

Do you just use the spreadsheet & the text file and explain what they're used for?

Well as long as the exam board still know the printout is yours it should be fine! Although you will use quite few marks for presentation, how did you find question 1?
