P6 or D2? Watch
I'd go for D2 purely becuase I believe anybody, unless fantastic at Pure but not so good at applie, would find it easier than P6.
I would choose P6 because I like pure. D2 seems easier than D1 but it still has the simplex algorithm in game theory. P6 expands on what you've already done (complex numbers and vectors) and introduces new stuff like expansions of things like sin(x) into polynomials, matricies, differential equations (a new method) and proof by induction.
It's going to be Hard. Having said that, it's the first work in ages that I actually enjoy...
D2 because constant pure maths may get a bit boring.
I'm really enjoying P6 atm, it's difficult in places, but rewarding when you get things right, and yeah, I agree with the person who said that it's easier than P5.
Depends what you're thinking of doing afterwards. If you want to do maths at uni, I'd say do P6 as it will be good preparation for your course.
Just have to wait to learn about matrices, expansions of sinx etc until next year
The beauty of matrices is non-pareil.
if its a math degree, engineering or the like P6..
in terms of difficulty, i found D2 far easier...
My $0.02 .
just started it and am on OCR: doing vector equations of planes yay lol. it doesn't seem that bad.....but i said that about P3.....eeeEEKKK lol awaiting results for the january exam!
