AQA Further Mathematics GCSE 15/06 and 20/06

Hi

I am currently studying the AQA Further Mathematics course in Year 11, having gotten an A* in Year 10 for the normal Maths GCSE, and I am looking for any useful sources of help, such as websites or YouTube channels that explain things in a very good way.

Topics I am concerned about include:

Algebraic proof
Matrices (Inverse and translations etc)
Circle Theorems
Functions (F(x))
Sin, Cos and Tan functions and graphs

As well as more.

I recently got 131/175 on a mock that had the grade boundary for an A^ (^ means distinction) at 144 and my older brother got that grade so I REALLY want to get an A^ now, so one requires some sort of effective revision that goes specifically into this course and not too far into an AS Maths course.

Thanks

I'm having trouble factorising polynomials at the moment I've been doing past papers and then going through the solutions of the questions I got wrong so that I understand how to do that question, even if it is altered slightly in another paper. I have no idea if this is working, but I'll find out on Monday

And on mocks I've only been getting Bs and sometimes As, I'm trying to cram so I can get that A^!

For division of polynomials, I would recommend watching videos but I used MyMaths.co.uk for help.

http://www.mymaths.co.uk/indexLog.asp?h=49858 Go to Core 1 then Factor Remainder (if you need a school login I can private message you one)

The division eventually gets easy enough to remember once you get the hang of it, just like differentiation

I found this quite useful for Circle Theorems as it has the proof of why they are what they are:

Thanks, I forgot MyMaths even existed! I've got my school login that I can use too
