    most Further Mathematicians can pretty much teach themselves.
    this is assumption made by teachers generally works well with pure and mech units however it doesnt seem to work too well with stats or decision for some reason - our teach assumed that us further mathmeticians could speed through S1 so he "taught" us variance s.d expected values in one lesson and half the class was clueless since teacher never went into much detail and we haven't done gcse stats either

    I've never taught Further Pure since it changed from P4 etc. Only taught D1 once, not really into Decision Maths. I have previously taught M2/M3/M4 but I have more impact teaching the standard units. Further Maths doesn't really require much teaching, more demonstration, most Further Mathematicians can pretty much teach themselves.
    The new books sure do make it easy to self teach
    D1 is'nt actually maths though is it?
    S2 is probably a better choice over D1 surely? or would FP1, FP2 and M2 be better for AS Further Maths?

      It is Maths, just a different, modern form.

      I would recommend only taking FP1 for AS Further and then 2 applied units, gives you far more options.

      I got a D! 59 UMS - not too far off a C then. I think a retake? but I ain't good in mechanics. I got a B in FP1 and S2!

      Same! Congrats

      I am quite pleased as I was focussing mainly on C3 and C4 soI was getting pretty rubbish marks in the practice papers leading up to this. I dont think I could have done any better. This gives me a fairly solid grounding for an A in fm (fingers crossed!)

      just that I don't understand the idea of work done by force, work done by friction, how do we de decide in which direction does it go and which sign to put?
      can someone explaint this to me?
      Thanks

      Well work done by force is the energy you need to raise the object so calculate the perpendicular height and use potential energy= mgh. Work done by friction is the energy you need to actually drag the object on the surface which would be Friction force by distance moved (the slanted lenght) = Frd . Then you add them up to get work done in moving the object.
      Friction oposes motion so as he's dragging the object up the fristion acts down.
      Hope this helps but its hard to write out so perhaps ask your teacher to explain it again.
