Most of what you mentioned can be attributed to the areas of maths I have already said,probability is part of statistics etc.
You forgot to mention that "symbolic maths" is an attribute of rubbish.

Symbolic Maths is the future.Now lets get back on topic at discussing Symbolic Mathematics,What did you think of the papers?What aspect of Symbolic Math are you most interested in?

You shouldn't be trying to "invent" your own A-Level maths modules if you don't even know what natural numbers are...
Who are you to say that?Why does everyone hate my new area of maths,that challenges the very principles of mathematics?

Because it hardly challenges basic arithmetic, let alone "the very principles of mathematics".

Also you meet every criteria for a crank mathematician.

Wow! - this sums him up so perfectly:

  1. Cranks overestimate their own knowledge and ability, and underestimate that of acknowledged experts.
  2. Cranks insist that their alleged discoveries are urgently important.
  3. Cranks rarely, if ever, acknowledge any error, no matter how trivial.
  4. Cranks love to talk about their own beliefs, often in inappropriate social situations, but they tend to be bad listeners, being uninterested in anyone else's experience or opinions.


Edit: btw when I said sum I didn't mean a lateral solution.

Allow me to interject.

Isn't all maths symbolic. Even our number system is just names for the physical representation of a quantity of something.

How is this any of this more symbolic than the 'ordinary' maths.

BTW, I checked out the paper, it's just nonsense.

It focuses primarily on symbols,with symbolic expansion and finding out the values of symbols and investigating what happens to numbers when symbols are removed and how the lack of symbols creates numerous solutions to problems etc.

I'm sorry that was just completely incoherent.

No I don't mean Algebra the symbolic expansion of 2x^2 +6x+9=216x^2+^2^^7

Right. May I ask why you haven't produced mark schemes?

It would take too much time.I did make mark schemes for some of the questions and I have created a wikia,which has some of the topics on.

It's common sense - you shouldn't make your own maths A-Level exam if you haven't yet covered the A-Level maths syllabus (in fact, you haven't even covered all the GCSE syllabus yet). ukdragon has given you a good answer to your second question.

I'm not developing onto other areas of Maths though that would require A-Level,Degree knowledge etc but creating a new area of maths and when I'm doing A-Level I might well create A2 Symbolic Mathematics,from the ideas and concepts of A-Level.
