# Maths Calculator Paper watch

1. Could someone list a number of topics that I should revise for the calculator paper? Thanks
2. er yeh hang on im just finding it
3. ok take a look at this thread from a few days ago:

http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/t119056.html

basically it could be anything on your syllabus except it's less likely to be something that already came up in the non-calc exam.

4. Thanks
5. My maths dept created a list for us:

Transformations
Proportionality
Congruence and similarity
Accuracy (upper and lower bounds)
Averages(freq tables and moving avrges)
% change
Nth term
Trial and Improvement
Vol and surface area
Inequalities
Calculator use and rounding
Classifying formulae
Boxplots, histograms and cul freq
6. Im inclined to expect that there will be more graphs, as they dont use calculators and there werent many on the other paper.

There were loads of graphs on the other paper!! Did you not see that nasty cosine sine graph question? I doubt there'll be more graphs.
8. I meant graphs for us to draw (median, upper and lower quartile etc.). I didnt actually understand the sine graph thing until the exam when Iworked it out.

I bet anything that there will be a 'complete the trial and error table' type question.
9. That said, there is no way to tell what will be on - all of the topics can appear on every paper (or so I believe).

Which tier and exam board is that for?
11. This is for AQA higher, on my list we have been told to revise culmative frequency.
12. Ah, I'm on CCEA Intermediate. Anyone got a list for that? I have a crappy teacher and I need a C to get back for Sixth Form. I got a U in my mocks so...I need all the help I can get!
