    About the UK sutton trust summer camp this year, I'm not sure what they mean by transport is payed for to and from the summer school i.e the Universities. Is that actually from my country Wales to England/Scotland as that seems a little unlikely/hard to organise if for example there were two of us going to one of the Unis from one college... Anyone know anything?

    Bit late catching onto this thread, but if you want to add me to the list then that'd be cool - I'm OCR for Physics and Chemistry, AQA for Geography and Edexcel for Maths and Further Maths.

    They're not particularly intrusive (for me and others at least). You barely notice them when you aren't lacerating your gums on them.
    ahhhh i hate them they don't hurt but i can't physically bite anything because my teeth no longer touch!

    Yup... well I did Admaths so I pretty much did C1 + C2. I haven't done calculus in my course atm so I'll need to revise that. Differentiating with negative power I didn't know before but shouldn't take long to learn...

    I'll have to learn M1 for summer though, not sure how long that'll take...

    Also, you might find this interesting.

    3=0, and I can show you the proof.

    Want to see it?

    We learnt C1 C2 and M1 all within about 8 weeks, it's pretty simple if you have a good book/source to learn from

    Differentiation with a negative power is the same. Just multiply by co efficient and subtract one from power.

    M1 shouldn't take too long!

    I do, but does it involve any one of these?

    Go on
    I have lots of other work I'd like to keep on top of though, doing extra reading for chemistry

    so:

    x^2+x+1=0
    x+1+\frac{1}{x}=0
    x=-1-\frac{1}{x}
    Sub into first line
    x^2-1-\frac{1}{x}+1=0
    x^3-1=0
    x^3=1
    x=1
    Sub into first line
    1+1+1=0
    3=0

    Can you figure out what's going on? :P

    tl; dr probably not

    another one is:

    let
    x=2
    x^2=4
    x=\pm{2}
    -2=2

    :lol: how'd you get from:

    x = -1 - (1/x)

    To

    x^2 - 1 - (1/x) + 1 = 0

    So why do these things make 'sense'? When they're not?

    Because you can't re arrange an equation and resub in?

    that's what I thought when I was shown this :lol:

    Hint: How many solutions does a linear equation have?
    A quadratic?
    A cubic?
