# any one! p1 maths watch

1. any body know whats likely to come up on tomorrow's p1 edexel as level paper?!?!?
2. The standard stuff that I expect to be on it are:

Sequence and Series
Differentiation & Integration (Absolutely Guaranteed)
Co-Ordinate Geometry (i.e Equation of Line, Mid-Point etc...)
Completing The Square (Maybe Proving The Quadratic Formula)
Triangle Stuff (Maybe Mixed With Co-Ordinate Geometry)

Anyone Else Think Of Stuff I Missed
3. You're prolly right about there being a proof, I haven't seen a p1 paper ask for quadratic proof but Id go through it a bit before taking the paper. Make sure you know arithmetic and geometric proof also. I screwed up my first P1 paper cos i didn't understand the Sigma character. So learn what that sigma means!
Also solving quadratics by substitution is fairly common, and simultaneous equations. Make sure you know the basic geometry/trig equations. e.g.

Area=(1/2)bcSinA for a triangle
and a^2=b^2+c^2 - 2bcCosA

Good luck everyone!

Chris.
4. I can't wait for P1! It would help if I knew at least half the syllabus, though..
