edexcel maths higher mockWatch
I'm doing higher linear papers.
i struggle with paper 2, so can you give me an indication of whats coming up
Anything that wasn't on your non-calculator paper could appear on calculator so think back to what was on it. Scatter graphs? Box plots? Cumulative frequency? Factorise? Expand brackets? Vectors? Simultaneous equations? Algebraic fractions / algebraic fraction equations ....
Many of the topics that will be there will not require a calculator.
Topics that do often feature are:
Advanced trigonometry (sine, cosine and area of a triangle rules)
Area and volume, especially involving circles or prisms.
Trial and improvement
Solving quadratics using the formula
Estimate a mean from grouped data
Histograms (if not on non calc)
Cumulative frequency (if not on non calc)
Probability (any topics not on non calc)
% problems that need a calculator using multipliers
Reverse % (original price calculations)
Value for money calculations.
And at the risk of repeating, ANY topic that could be done with or without a calculator that wasn't tested on non-calc (algebra, circle theorems, angle facts on parallel lines, interior/exterior angles, bearings.....)
