    Chain rule is alright I'll admit, everything else, nah. I don't like algebra really.

    Trig isn't actually any harder than C2, its just the introduction to the unnecessary functions. Apparently they're major in C4


    I disagree

    But like how are the inverse trig functions actually useful? Just makes everything longer
    Mathmo is someone doing maths at Cambridge

    Inverse trig? Like arctan(x)? Or 1/tan(x)?

    They'll help to answer questions

    Nope!:eek: never ever ever!

    Arctan is basically...

    tan(x) = 4
    x = arctan(4)

    So you've used them before, just written it as tan^-1 etc

    Lol because chemistry is way better!!!

    For a second I thought you did some weird logging

    I always say "tan to the minus 1" :rofl:

    It is I'm only doing Ionic Equations now but I'm loving it

    :nah: see it is confusing because if you think "tan(x) to the minus 1" it'd be "1/tan(x)" but that's cot!:rofl:

    Ahh, back when chemistry was that simple

    Nah, I mean like "tan to the minus 1 of x" just like I'd say "f to the minus 1 of x" for inverse functions

    Does A level Geography have any scientific elements in it at all? It's accepted as a science for so many biology courses Many also accept ICT as a science, which annoys the hell out of me!

    :mmm: I can't wait for it to get hard! Although yesterday, balancing Aluminium Hydroxide + Sulphuric Acid was so irritating

    Geography is quite scientific, like plate tectonics lets say... They identify things with gravity anomalies, thermal hot spots etc

    I found unit 1 harder than unit 2 tbh

    2Al(OH)3 + 3H2SO4 -> Al2(SO4)3 + 6H2O

    It's actually really grown on me, I didn't like it when I did it in year 10, but I've learnt to appreciate it this year

    Deal, I think I'll do Wuthering Heights considering there's a lot to get through
