    I think there'll definitely be angles. I think we'll also have to do stem and leaf and/or a bar chart, something circle-related, finding the nth term, pythagoras... That's just based on what *wasn't* in non-calc and the type of topics that tend to be on calc. Can't remember if there was a ratio problem on non-calc? They like those

    I'm sitting the same paper. Some topics listed below echo previous comments but I hope this helps.
    I suggest covering the following topics:

    Pythagoras theorem
    Inequalities
    Graphs/Pie Charts/Stem Leaf
    Conversions of units
    Shapes - 2D and 3D
    Area/Volume/Surface Area of shapes
    Area of a Circle/Circumference of a Circle/etc.
    Parallel lines/Angles in Triangles/Angles in Polygons
    Transformations
    Exchange rate of money
    Percentage increase and decrease
    Ratio
    Probability
    Mode/Mean/Median/Range
    Frequency tables
    Cube and Square roots (know the functions on the calculator!)

    There are videos on Youtube demonstrating how to use mathematical/scientific calculators and the functions needed to quickly find out square roots/cube roots/fractions excetra.

    Good Luck.
