    I did this too but geography to biology! I caught up, but I wouldn't leave it any longer...
    How long did it take you to catch up on the first 2 chapters?

    Haven't been on here in a while Maths: Had a test today; went better than I thought. Though homework leaves me not face-palming; but face-desking. true story. Chemistry: Really interesting But just as I think understand something; something comes along with exceptions :mad:Biology: ...going alright; probs the worst teaching though. English Lit: :love::love:Critical thinking: Relatively simple yet ever so boring. Hope you guys are all well! (I'll try to get on here more often :mad:)

    Still need any help? Which part are you stuck on?
    Nah I don't need help any more thanks, I've got it.

    However, we are starting the equation of a straight line next lesson...... that looks pretty damn hard. :'( Did a bit of looking ahead and I failed miserably.. hopefully I'll be better at it after the lesson.

    It really isn't

    For a straight line equation, you always find y in an equation written as y=mx+c. The M is the gradient, and the C is where it meets the line meets the Y axis.

    So if you get a line with the equation of Y=2x+9, you have a gradient of two (for every point you move across on the X axis, the co-ordinates move two up on the Y axis) and the line meets at the Y axis at nine.

    If someone is asking you to find the equation of a line that is perpendicular to a straight line, the gradient changes to the negative reciprocal of the original straight line, which basically means flipping over the numbers and changing the sign to positive or negative. So for example, if it asks you to find the gradient of a line that is perpendicular of the above equation, you find the negative reciprocal of two which is -0.5 (essentially, two as a fraction is positive 2/1, so if you flip the numbers and change it from positive to negative, it becomes -1/2. You can see that the negative reciprocal of -1/2 is +2/1, or two so its just a case of switching between positive and negative, and flipping the numbers ).

    Any part you don't quite understand?

    Is anyone else getting a niggling feeling of subject-based regret? I really do love all my subjects, but I'm starting to wish I'd taken English Lit, because that does look really interesting. I mean, the English teaching at my sixth form doesn't leave much room for interpretation (which I know I'd hate), I know it's virtually impossible to balance 5 A-levels, and I hate it when people try to make me manufacture creative writing, so I'm not regretting it as much as I might have done otherwise, but I still miss it. Just me? Okay...

    Textbooks are so annoying. Including the fact all my teachers are making us pay deposits of £5-£10 for each textbook. Are you using one lever arch file for both human/physical geography together?
    Wow, that must be annoying! We have barcodes in ours, so they're basically on extended loan from the library, and if you don't return it you have to pay for a new one. Yep, physical and human are in one folder - what about you?
