    OCR?

    I am - started the course officially in January (but had done bits and pieces earlier in the year and the year before), and am taking it amongst my other subjects this summer.

    Which topics did you want to discuss?

    I started the course in September after taking IGCSE maths last year.

    The main problem i seem to be having is that i'm not very accurate. I understand the stuff the teacher goes through but i always get the wrong answers when i do the questions...

    Have you done linear programming (inequalities on a graph) etc yet?

    The teacher who organised additional maths told my maths teacher in September to ask my class if we wanted to do it, but she never even told us :// We found out last week and a group of us found the maths teacher organising it and so we're starting it tomorrow after school. I'm worried because it's really late but he said it's possible if we put our heads down

    I'm fairly certain I have. Is it the topic were the questions are often phrased as "find the maximum profit" once you've drawn the graph?

    Yeah. Is it necessary to plot an objective line or can you just work it out visually/point of intersection in the exam?

    I'm not sure in general - for the paper I just did (2005, I think) I just looked at it visually because the line would've been too complicated to draw. If it's easy to draw the line, I would do so just to make sure you're not dropping unnecessary marks?
