I have found many maths methods are a bit complex, but have cheat versions which a student has to usually find out for themselves. Is there a page on TSR with these, or may I start one here?

I've also found that we in England are only taught one method, while those abroad may have much quicker easier way of doing things, or remembering. One of my Brazilian friends taught me one months ago, none of my other friends who took maths last June knew of it.

I would love to be pointed towards or for others to share their tricks, cheats to help us all pass the exam next year with really exceptionally good grades.

There is a function on the Casio fx85 calculator (allowed in the exam) that can do prime factorisation. The is a video on YouTube explaining in. Also, you can use the triangles to remember trig values. I know this is on the A level syllabus already, but for GCSE it is useful to use the factor theorem to check answers for quadratics or the discriminant to see how many solutions it has / whether it can be factorised.

I found a free downloadable Higher maths cheat sheet

https://www.tes.com/teaching-resourc...sheet-11286054

NB there are others, but some you have to pay for.

PS Check out the other cheat sheets as there are a few goodies, including one for those prepping to do A level, as well as one by topic for GCSE maths.

Is this just GCSE level? I can't really think of any "shortcuts" at gcse level bar lesser known calculator functions.

What?! You ********! Look at your nose. Nose long like garden hose! Sssshhhhhhhh!
Go be petty somewhere else. I'm not a child. If you want attention go make a thread of your own, and look at your stuck emotional issues.
