How you guys feeling about the course so far? We have completed: completing the square, functions (composite functions, domains, set notations and inverse functions) so far, and they have been very easy; although a much bigger step-up from National 5. National 5 seems like absolutely nothing compared to Higher; will be interesting to see the rest of the content held within the course.

Yeah we’ve done the exact same I agree, pretty easy so far although I’m sure the hard stuff is soon to come. I’d already done the completing the square when x^2 has a coefficient and the inverse functions in 4th year though so that was mainly just revision.

Me too; I had done Higher completing the share in fourth year, although it was very brief and was only as an extension task.

The inverse functions were that work of an A level candidate as our teacher said. So on that basis Higher Maths should be very easy like National 5 was 😁.

Higher isn't too bad, I just sat it there in May.

If you're struggling just keep practicing and doing past papers, wouldn't recommend doing actual past papers until after prelims though or you will run out of past papers when it comes to exam time.

Don't get put off if you do less than expected in your prelim because for a subject like maths it's quite easy to get better understanding just through sheer repetition.
