Thought it would be fun and I enjoy mehanics, made my applixation stronger I believe.

Easier than statistics
With the higher modules I guess? I find S1 easier than M1 but looking at S2, S3, I'd rather the M counterparts

STATS IS BAE

I repeat

Stats is BAE

S2 isn't difficult at all! Can't speak for S3
7. (Original post by Mathemagicien)
Not at A-level
It was a joke.
8. (Original post by Mathemagicien)
But S1 is so boring

Not at A-level

Stats looks worse because it's symbols and notation you've never used before. It's VERY simple

It was the first module I started okay? It'll always be spercul!

So you're in Yr 12? It seems so long ago that I was too... and yet, it passed so quickly
wbu? How long ago I wonder xD
12. (Original post by Mathemagicien)
Yr 13

So exactly 1 yr

Are you only doing single maths btw? I sometimes forget this isn't the STEP Prep thread
I was under the impression you were done with uni

Nope, doing Maths AL and FM AS xD
13. (Original post by Mathemagicien)
Only AS?
I'll do the A2 next year xD

I'm not entirely sure if I'll be able to the remaining IAL modules... if I can doe, I will
14. How many modules are you guys doing?

Don't you just need 6 applied modules at most if you're doing further maths till A2. So did you basically pick all mechanics modules if you're doing m5?

Can u give an example of all the modules you're doing?

I'm doing 9 modules this year – A2 Maths, AS and A2 Further Maths. The only optional unit I'm doing that isn't mechanics is S1.

Some people do AFM: all 18 modules. Or AS AFM: 15 modules.
17. I always do the variable mass losing mass questions as m-deltam and other prticle as deltam. I always get the same answer, but the books says 'we always use m+deltam' why? And will i lose marks?
18. Is there a thread for M4? If not, I'll make one.

Doesn't matter either way. I was also confused by that but whichever way you do it, you get the same result when you take the limit as tends to 0. It would be stupid to lose any marks on that, not even method marks since it is an equivalent method.
