Summary of content mapping:

Spoiler:
Show
  • Vectors - FP3 [volumes/direction cosines were somewhat underrepresented in the old specification. These can be found in AQA FP4]
  • Parabolas and rectangular hyperbolas - FP1
  • Ellipses and hyperbolas - FP3
  • Inequalities - FP2
  • T-formulae - ?
  • Use of series expansions to find limits - AQA FP3
  • Leibnitz Theorem - ?
  • L'Hopital's rule - MEI P6
  • Weierstrass substitution - OCR FP2
  • Numerical methods for DEs - Edexcel P6/legacy FP3
  • Simpson's rule - MEI Numerical Methods, though I'm not sure if the questions are suitable.
  • Reducible ODEs - FP2




As you might have seen on the other thread, I'm making question packs for Core Pure, FP1 and FS1, particularly new content. I'm putting all of them here. Always willing to expand any of these, so feedback is welcome as always.

Thank you so much for all of these! You are a life saver! Is it possible for you to do Further Mechanics 1 if you study it?

I don't study it but I could still compile questions for you lot. Drawback is that I'd be selecting purely based on examiner reports. Feel free to say if you want any of the existing packs expanded or want a solution to any question in particular.

Thank you so much you don't know helpful that would be. I am using all your questions as I am self studying both units. Honestly thank you so much! I am so happy there are some FP1 questions out there! Just waiting on Leibnitz's theorem but I know how busy you must be so thank you!

I thought I put it on there but it turns out I forgot to hit save. I couldn't find any A-level questions on Leibniz's Theorem (to be fair, it is a very random theorem to include) so they're all made from scratch. Some are inspired by textbook questions so should hopefully be reasonable.

Thank you so much and I agree the spec is really weird!
