    Vectors & Probabillity. The 2 sub-topics in maths I have never been able to understand. Ever.

    so, I guess understanding them now might be a good idea. supposedly.


    anyway, an explanation from a talented maths genius about how to tackle these 2 sub-topics would be great, or if anyone knows any good resources (videos,books, sites, etc) for finding out more - that would be great too.

    i'm taking a maths a level next year soo. this stuff's probably gonna be pretty useful for me.

    Vectors can be a pain but overall can be leant if you are willing to put effort in.

    There's loads of good youtube videos explaining things.

    Probability is just learning the few rules at gcse. Events that follow you multiply. 2 separate events to happen you add.

    Vectors are just literally vectors. Like you learn in physics, vectors have a direction and a length. You can write them as a 2x1 matrix or just as a letter.

    I can expand ^ .If you want any help inbox me, I'm doing IGSCE maths which is pretty much the same.

    Hegartymaths is good. Follow along and make sure to pause and have a go before seeing the answer. You may feel like you can ace it as you understand what he's saying. But the only way to remember and get good is to practice it. Follow up with some exercises from your textbook
