# Whats harder? Trig or calculus? watch

1. I dont know im bored....
2. what level? trig is easy as it doesn't really get into much detail.
Calculus is sooooooo much harder because it extends so much
3. Cant remember ever knowing what calculus is, but AS trig is headache material

AS trig? Try A2!! Calculus dont really get hard until P3, but then it gets reeeally hard with the chain rule and stuff like that!
5. I've always found calculus to be easier then trig. Could have had something to do with me being away for almost all of P2 trig and not having any idea about what I was ment to be doing untill I decided to teach myself what I'd missed :O
6. when you start using calculus on trig functions, thats when it gets really good

Basic Trig ie SOHCAHTOA walk in the park. Advanced trig, like differentiateing it and all sorts is a p*** take.
8. i spelt sohcahtoa wrong once on a mock. it was very sad.

Try degree level calculus!

At least trig stops at a certain point, theres nothing much to extend in it
10. We've not done much hard calculus so far (1st year Physics degree). Saw a double integral though, but it wasn't too hard. But yeah, calculus is harder than trig.
11. I found trig for P2 a whole lot more difficult than calculus, simply due to the difficulty of determining how to approach trig proof questions. That said, calculus looks a whole lot worse in P3.
12. I would say calculus, but only because I'm doing further calculus as my option in IB methods, it is also my favourite of the two
13. P1 trig is quite hard
14. I hate them both. But I enjoy putting them to the sword, which is why I enjoy Maths really! I prefer proofs and statistics...
15. stats is a lovely subject

Like I said, I cant be your friend cause you dont like pure. Seriously though, I despise and detest stats, its easy but S2 is gonna p*** me off with all that hypothesis testing. Proofs are alright.My board is OCR.

I like some pure maths! And like I said I get a real buzz from conquering an aspect of Maths I really hate. But stats is in my view fun to implement, and I like the courseworks! My board is AQA, and I did Syllabus A which includes Methods <blood boils>

I dont get the option to do coursework

In a way you're lucky, you don't waste time on coursework. I much prefer exams to coursework, I'd much rather turn on the style on a given day than plod along with a coursework for a far-off deadline that creeps up on you from out of nowhere...
