I have started my maths and further maths a level and so far i have basically completed all of C1 and C2 along with about half of FP1 (complex numbers, matrices, roots of polynomials and we started the inverse of matrices in class). I was just wondering what are the hardest topics from all of the modules? I found most of C1 and C2 easy and want to do some of the harder stuff like the calculus with parametric equations etc.

Are you in Year 12? If so, why are you studying modules?

Trust me C1 & C2 look like gcse work once you start C3 & C4 lol.
Hardest topics I found were trig identities and trig differentiation in C3 and vectors in C4

Ok. I have looked at some of the course. What were the identities. I know some identities such as sin(theta)/cos(theta)=tan(theta) and costheta)^2 + sin(theta)^2 = 1 but i have heard of some like the half angle identities that looked harder.

The teacher gave us the old books for the course. I just split it up like that to explain what I had done without listing 10-15 topics in detail.

Im currently in my second year of college doing Maths, F.Maths, and Chemistry and I'd personally say M1/M2 are the hardest, FP2/3 are very different from FP1, but neither are too bad, S1 is quite easy and C3/4 are fine if you wrap you head around the trig and remember a load of rules about integration and differentiation. Good Luck.

Trig identities such as Sin2x = 2SinXCosX, Cos2x = Cos^2(X) - Sin^2(X) and applying these to exam questions, not the easiest of topics, but once you get your head around it, then it becomes easy 👍🏼

Ok thanks. From what i saw most of it is covered in physics so i hope it isn't too hard.
