    I agree with what Meteorshower has said.

    You need to know some basic calculus for AH physics, and this isn't taught until Unit 2 and 3 of H Maths, so you might need to ask for extra help when you encounter this before you're taught it in Maths (i.e. when you're deriving kinematic equations using calculus)
    Thanks for the reply, so calculus is only the major concept from higher maths which needs to be understood and implemented?

    I can't remember every topic from H Maths, but calculus is definitely one of the main ones you need The trig might come in useful too, I think

    Not really, as far as I can remember you only need 3rd year trig even for advanced higher. Apart from when you need to differentiate/integrate trig :p:

    It's only really differentiation and integration that is necessary as far as I remember, but other things help for understanding.

    Question for the AH physicists: I was under the impression that Fourier series came into the course. Was I grievously misinformed?

    Yes. There is an aside in the waves section of the scholar book talking about how sawtooth waves can be created, but as for what's actually in the course, it's not there.

    Credit level ability would help, but it's certainly not required.

    (that said, you notice things that are pretty cool occasionally with a knowledge of higher maths, but only on a trivial level :p:)

    As far as I'm aware SG/Int 2 would suffice. So as you're doing Int 2 this year you should be fine. Doesn't mention anything about it in the arrangements documents either.

    It is, but it's only mentioned in passing about how any wave can be formed by sin and cos. It's probably an examinable fact but you just don't learn anything useful that can be done with it.

    That DEFINATELY helps. If anyone didn't have a higher pass at chemistry I think they would find it quite difficult.

    Argh. I was planning to do AH Biology at the same time as H Chem.

    You can still do it I doubt there would be a lot of chem in it.

    I'd think that's definitley possible. I know of at least 2 people in my year doing that this year.

    You could still do it. The chemistry stuff in AH biology gets taught to you so you don't really have to have H chemistry but it definately helps to have that background knowledge.
