    Differentiation is the bread and butter really, if you don't understand that then you need to watch videos, practice - go to www.madasmaths.co.uk there are loads of differentiation questions, also questions on related rates of change, integration (all types) etc. there's loads of stuff

    heres a tip for C4 integration, whenever you see sin^2x or cos^2x
    think of the formula Cos2x=1-2sin^x and rearrange to integrate. You probably may already know this but yeah!
