Higher maths

Has anyone got any higher maths advice websites/resources etc really aiming for an A this year
Is this for SQA Higher maths? If so;

DLB Maths YouTube channel of worked solutions to all past paper questions:

Website for worked solutions to the Heinemann textbook and to find past papers:
https://www.highermathematics.co.uk/
For finding questions on specific topics, Dynamic Maths is helpful:
https://www.dynamicmaths.co.uk/QuestionBank/index.php?levelQ=6
Finally, if you like notes on topics:
https://www.hsn.uk.net/higher-maths/notes

I found all of these great and they helped me to get an A1! DLB maths is my favourite. Flashcards with notes and methods really worked for me too. Good luck with it!

Thank you so so much for this, I try to make flashcards but I don't really know what to put or how to word them, do u have any examples? :smile:
I had exactly the same problem when making my flashcards, but what worked for me was to make one flashcard for each lesson. I made mine mostly once I'd finished each unit. On one side was the specific topic/lesson title, and on the other the notes, strategies or formulae depending on the lesson. Here's an example from the straight line topic, which you've probably done as it's Unit 1:
SIDE 1: Collinearity
SIDE 2:
[Points which lie on the same line are collinear]

Calculate Mab

Calculate Mbc

If gradients are the same, points are collinear

State: 'points are collinear as Mab = Mbc with B as a common point'

I colour-coded cards into the three units, then wrote in the corner of the front of each card the topic. If you're finding it hard to word the cards, try using the notes from your teacher or the HSN notes. However, if you don't understand what they mean, ask your teacher to explain it in easier terms. For me, what was most important was to have a quick summary of definitions and strategies, so I could apply them to any question. Hope this helps! 🙂
