Exam Jam Day 4 - Maths!

It's the fourth day of TSR's Exam Jam for the May Half Term 2018, and today the focus is on Maths!

Image

Whether it's GCSE or A level you're studying for, this is the place to ask questions, get advice and tell us about how your revision is going!

For today, we'll be using this thread as an all day revision thread. The idea is that you post your start time, when you plan to finish your study session, and what you want to achieve in that time. Once the time's up, you can come back, tell everyone how you got on and take a well earned break!

We won't be running sessions at set times, so you can structure your study day to whatever works best for you, and though it's an all day revision thread, there's no expectation to study all day. It's important to make sure you are taking breaks and enjoying some of the nice weather too, since it is a holiday after all :woo:

If you get stuck with a past paper question when you're revising, or there's that one topic you really just can't get your head around, you can post your questions in this thread for other students to answer Explaining things to others can be really beneficial to your own understanding too

S1 notes (Edexcel)

Although it occasionally uses some unnecessary notation, formulae.

I felt the same way for a really long time (although it was for a uni stats module). What I found really helped was spending time looking over notes in detail to make sure I understood them properly. I think stats is very different from other parts of maths and just doing practice questions doesn't always. Try to go over the book slowly and make notes as well to help you remember the content.

Wish I'd found this earlier, I've been procrastinating like crazy today!
Buut I've finished running through every single Pure Maths mixed exercise that I have in our textbook, so that's good! Now I've made a list of all the sub topics (32 of them) that I hate the most, and don't understand as well as I should, and am doing half an hour on each of them before my exam on Wednesday + many many past papers!

I'm in the year below, so new spec but is S1 the wordy part of stats or like hypothesis testing/binomial distribution? I usually try to get someone to explain tough questions to me so I understand the concept and that there's often a way to do certain types of questions e.g. in mechanics with pulley questions, you usually have to find the acceleration first and then when one hits the floor at a certain speed, etc. Get it? It's like there are systems for different kinds of questions...it helps me anyways to learn a difficult example and then apply it to different questions. AND NOT FORGETTING DOING PAST PAPER QUESTIONS OF COUUUUURSE! good luck though!! I'm sure you'll do fine xx
