1. Here is the MS. They go from the 2nd to 3rd line by introducing a minus sign. Is it the limits at the very start?

I posted some modulus sketch,,,,

I have curve sketching file.

This has no graph but it is about constants (calculator is needed)
AEA 2014 Q4a and c what would be your answer for the S+ in each part. They say 'comment on r=0' and 'S+ for dealing with r=0 case'.

5. I am a pain but I was looking for what your comments would be for the S+ marks as i listed before. I can't see them on the solution i think

6. Has anybody else looked up areas of GCSE shapes and circle theorems etc for vector questions? Never knew that the area of a kite was 0.5 * height * width tbh

the area of a rhombus or a kite is the semi-product of its diagonals
8. Is it worth doing a few of these papers? I'm not sitting the paper, but does it help your maths problem solving at all? Looks very straightforward compared to STEP tbh, especially that you get 3 hours to do 7 questions with the first few taking a couple of mins

Looks straight forward but it isnt as easy as it seems trust me. Some of the problems are identical to some step III problems set a few years ago... Although the style is much more oiviting and nice. They are hard but not II and III hard maybe STEP I hard id say.

I guess it makes sense that its the same difficulty as STEP 1. but even then Warwick put a grade 2 in step 1 as equal to a distinction in AEA.

Ill do a few recent papers anyway

Eh, I've had my one bad exam with FP3 so I'll be fine. Hope there's no 2014 q4-type question. Would love a paper like 2013.
