Yet you're still able to give good explanations
Not really, I just look up the explanations + I wouldn't post a problem I didn't understand, (unless I was asking for help)

LOL at a ninja using the internet
2. Im in yr 7 and I'm really into maths could you tell me and give me advice for what I should be doing from now to get into Cambridge??

tan[arg(z+6)]=1/2
arg(z+6) = arctan1/2
arg((x+6)+yi) = arctan1/2
tantheta = y/x
y/(x+6) = tan(arctan1/2)
y/(x+6) = 1/2
y= x/2 + 3
Thanks, seems alot easier than it looked .

Practice, yr 7 you have a long time ahead of you, try enjoy school as well as trying to get good GCSE grades 2 years or so from now, you just need to be good at maths

Since you're still in yr 7, I'd such try and get as many A*s at GCSE as possible , and there's extra-curricular maths stuff you can get involved in

Agreed, one thing I dislike about TSR is that it is very strict, there isn't much freedom.

f(x)=2x^3+2x^2+5x-9

not for you, just for the mods so I'm not apparently being irrelevant

need a bit of core 2 in here otherwise I'll rack up another 5 warning points
Well tbh, I agree with them.

Problems on here that have been thrown around don't really belong on this thread.

I know I'll get hate for this, but this is for a level maths(f.maths and a.f.maths) not random questions.

Yes, they can be enjoyable but that's not what this thread is for.

Anyway, haven't you sat C2? No need for that question. Chuck some FP stuff out there

You only have 2, I'm in the danger zone

Oh lets do a bit of fp1

I agree that some questions aren't very related but normally you'll see that the questions that are asked here will mainly require the A level knowledge so could just be used as practice for their exams as more challenging questions, that's how I view them really but I do understand what you're saying

To a certain extent I agree, however the questions I did yesterday were classed as do-able from an alevel point of view, i.e. the induction and irrationality I found used concepts from fp1 and core 1/2, as long as its not too irrelevant it can be good to develop and prepare for STEP.

Check my newest question, its a beast

Is just cuz like when I'm doin maths in class it's like so easy I also went on Internet and sat year 9 and year10 papers and I got 97 percent

Well that's very good! Just keep at it I'd say, your quite talented then I assume, so you're likely to get in anyway provided you don't slack off when there's hard work

Yeah, I think I get annoyed because I can't see the code on my phone and so can't be bothered attempting them tbh

Proofs just irritate me too!

It's probably because I never do them, and I feel crap when I see you guys do it.

Anyway... S1, seeing as my exams in over a week.

Any way in remembering all.those probabiliTy and Venn **** stuff?

That's quite true but I'm sure you can go from 0 to enough to get banned straight away, I've seen it happen to others before plus it'd probably increase the efficiency of my revision so I'm not afraid of them doing that to me. So as I said before Mods do your worst cause I ain't afraid However don't get anyone else for my comments as I'm the one making them. I'm too cool for the mods

(x-1) is a factor as coefficients sum 0

therefore

equating coefficients, 9x-bx=5x -> 9-b=5 -> b=4

and ploop

LOL, that was a gorgeous C2 solution :')

The funniest thing is me and MathsNerd1 get the points simultaneously :O

Some of the the notation for maths is cool although I don't understand what half of it stands for!

Yeah it also annoys me if I see a question that I can't do straight away so I tend to diverge from my current task to solve the question that has been asked, if I've got the ability and knowledge to that is I'd rather have the A level papers include some of the questions we ask on here instead of most of the repetitious questions that appear in the actual exams

Proofs aren't that bad tbh! and that sounds more like jealousy than irrelvancy? (not a word don't quote me). Your in year 11, some of this stuff needs to be done by people in year 12 and 13 to become more open minded mathematically rather than following a tedious syllabus. You can class induction as fp1, and irrationality questions I have heard come up in c3 solomons or something like that?

Anyway I understand your point, but this thread feels a bit more approachable for people like myself getting into the whole the STEP thing if you understand what I mean.

In C3, for harmonic form is it okay if you already know how to compute R and alpha. Or do you have to do the whole thing by saying ?

Emm I'm in year7 and I'm like really into maths I do yr 10and 11 work and sometimes even get 95 percent could you please tell me what should I be doing??

I no it took me ages to reach a proper solution

I don't want to live on this planet anymore, I'm not doing C3 remember
