I'm guessing that it will be of similar difficulty as the non-calculator paper, anyone want to take a stab at guessing which topics come up?

Hoping for upper and lower bounds and an easy trial and error question...

My maths teacher created a list:
-cake problems
-Trial and improvement
-Trigonometry (basic or sine/cosine/area of triangle)
-Pythagoras
Histograms
-similar shapes
-compound interest
-enlargement
-Plotting graphs (Linear/Quadratic/cubic)
Some of the topics in the list😀

We also got a list :^_^:
Averages,
probably estimating the mean from a freq table.
Percentages,
compound interest or reverse % question.
Expanding brackets or solving quadratics using the formula or difference of 2 squares.
Sharing money in a ratio, or changing the number of people in a recipe.
Upper bounds and lower bounds.
Histograms or frequency polygons or box plots.
Volume, density and mass.
Finding the area or the circumference of circles or parts of circles.
Direct and inverse proportionality.
Finding the nth term of a sequence.
Area and volume factors.
Drawing 3D shapes – nets, plan & elevations.
Significant figures.
Trigonometry and/or Sine and Cosine rules.
Trail and Improvement.Probability, all probabilities add up to 1.
How many times do you expect something to happen.Moving averages.
Circle Theorems (angles in circles).Stratified samples.
Standard Index FormSimilar triangles or other shapes or congruence.
Simultaneous Equations (perhaps with one quadratic !)
Vector.Two way tables.
Loci or construction.
Good luck xo

Lol, at least I'm starting revising before 8:30pm the night before until 1:30am...

Tip: use the predicted maths papers and fill up gaps in your knowledge.
