2. FM1 and FM2 anyone?
3. i doubt much people r doing this mechanics since it requires u to know A2 integration

wait

paper 2 FM for me (mechanics) has both fm mechanics 1 and 2 in it. It's a mix of both. :/

From memory that's paper 2J. We're doing 2E so that's only got the FM1 part of it
You're definitely right in that there won't be loads of people doing FM1 and FM2 though!

They didn't schedule to start it until after Easter... We've done 1/10 lessons on it, scheduled to finish in 3 weeks (so a week before the exam)

We're doing the same modules so I was just wondering if you have any resources for FM2 specifically because I don't particularly think the old spec books focus enough on problem solving (plus I don't really like them )
It's annoying because websites like Crash Maths and Madas Maths don't have papers for FM2 and there's literally one specimen paper we can use. It's okay for FM1 cos we can use the ones from other modules like 2E but it's really annoying for FM2.

I can get you the worksheets given by the Exam board, and all the other worksheets for it.

Theres also an exam board provided specimen paper for it, which I'm not sure whether you've got it yet.

OMG if you could, that would be fab!! Thank you so much!
I've done the one that's been on the website for ages but the new specimen is going to be used as a mock some time this week, I think.

How should I put it up?

I've got all the resources for CP1, FM1 and FM2 (Variable acceleration has bad quality)

It's got resources for CP1, FM1 and FM2.

The FM2 constant acceleration worksheet was only recently released, and unfortunately I only got the paper version... which I drew all over it, so I'll try and type it out when I get the chance.

Those practise topic papers are what our teacher gave us...I can't believe that my teacher said she'd made them It's weird how there's some topics missing though if Edexcel made them...like what's wrong with roots of equations Also how was question 4 on the collisions one related to collisions lol
Thanks for sharing
