As I am retaking, I shall learn from my mistakes and smash your I.Y.G.B papers.
You're more than welcome to shoot all your Edexcel FP2, FP3 and M2 material my way

I hope you are successful this time round
3. What topics out of FP1 do you need to know before doing FP2, if any?

For edexcel, just complex numbers and some co ordinate geometry.

OK thanks. How long do you reckon that would take to learn and be comfortable enough with for FP2? Learning + practice I'm thinking a weekend.
6. beautiful integral
any takers?

You actually gave me the idea for this one, but I cannot give clues.

correct
I got the inspiration after I looked at the Utube video you attached for another.

I am trying to make now a very nasty inverse trig question (no integration) but I am struggling to make it work
10. tough trig proof....
any takers?

My first thoughts are cos both sides, but it might be easier to
Spoiler:

Define the LHS as f(x). Show f'(x)=0, thus f(x) is a constant. Sub in a value. Haven't actually tried it so may not work

That is a standard technique but I did not approach it like this in my solution as this is a question to go into my special papers and students only have knowledge of core (do not know how to differentiate arccos)

I still think the algebra for this will be horrendous.

Don't all your special paper questions have horrendous algebra though

they do indeed.

This is one of the characteristics of my style.
Applied mathematics at University is similar
15. What books do you recommend for AS level maths and further maths on AQA? I was thinking the Bostock Chandler books for normal maths as I want to extend my knowledge as well as the CGP book for M1 and S1.

Is this good?

TeeEm could you be so kind as to briefly explain your 'plug and chug' formula that you use in work and energy problems? I don't understand what the subscripts on the 'W's represent. Let me know if you need me to explain further. Will be home in 10m, currently on train.

Ignore - after doing a few questions using it, the subscripts are obvious now...

W(in) = energy put into the system say the engine of the car, the cyclist pedalling
W(out) = energy taken out the system, which in general would be resistances

Thank you. Btw, hat little formula is very useful. Seeing the work energy principle as a formula like that was very helpful. Every different handout/book has a different way of approaching these questions which ultimately make it more confusing than it is.
20. another tough integral
any takers
