Hi,

I am trying to create educational resources for some GCSE students - which topics do/did you find the hardest? I don't just want to use my own experiences bc I might have found different things difficult to other people.

When I did my GCSE, nothing tbh.

Maths is a walk in a sunny summer park, with a fresh breeze of air and sparkling lemonade.

Checking whether a certain linear equation was tangent to another quadratic equation, and finding the points where the two graphs intersected. I was able to find the answers for these questions, but I had no intuition of why they actually worked. It took me the first chapter of A-Level Maths to actually understand the reasons for why we did them.

Looking through past papers, probs circle theorems and grade 9 level trig is always the things students need help with.
