# What topics come up for the calculator maths paper? watch

1. edexcel gcse. I have a list of topics to revise for but they are a mixture of non calc and calc. I don't want to waste time revising and stressing out on a non calc topic.

This file may be helpful, just go to the appropriate section (Foundation or Higher) and the predicted topics should be there.
3. Our teachers gave us a list based upon the non-calculator paper of topics that are likely to come up for the calculator paper:

Trig
Algebraic proofs
Upper and lower bounds
Frequency tables
Drawing a graph of some sort (as there was nothing in paper one)
Similar shape
Ratios
Angles in parallel lines
Simultaneous equations
Trial and improvements

Remember that just because a question is on a calculator paper doesn't mean you need to use a calculator so there aren't always calculator and non-calculator topics

Okay, so I found this file and it seems to include ALL the topics. However, you may want to confirm by checking in a revision guide, but I'm pretty confident these are all the topics.
