Re: My Mathematical Memories Messageyou should try and get through as much alevel work as you can and take the exams early. The Beginning Of All Things To End. The End Of All Things To Come. #5 20070728 19:12:12
Re: My Mathematical Memories MessageThe one i hate is the mechanics one. Stats isn't that bad to me and I am doing it for GCSE. So did you actually do an ALevel while you were in high school? I would consider taking the exam early but i did my SATS test a year early (Like another 7 other pupils in my school) and I got a level 7a but then the following year i got a level 8a. Also, my old maths teacher trued to put 3 years curriculum into 1 year and it really didn't work because she always wanted to go to the IT Suite and draw a diagram on the board. One time we spent 2 weeks on a presentation about noughts and crosses. I really didn't learn much new maths in the first 2 years of high school.In year 9 though, we had a great teacher, he really wanted to push th class forward and certain individulas like myself. He told me about a girl who he taught ALevel stuff to in year 8 and she didn't even realise it was ALevel work! That mademe want to do that too and really push myself. It's also the summer holidays at the moment and my mum is away so i'm staying at a friend of hers house but i have my own room with a computer and sky. I brang a suitcase full of GCSE books and a pure mathematics and Law ALevel text book.

Re: My Mathematical Memories Messagewhat my yr9 teacher did, he wasnt that great a teacher but he got the head of maths in and me and a friend got a GCSE book to work through in yr9 so i learnt pretty much all the GCSE work in yr 9, and then in the start of yr10, my friend didnt want to, but i worked through an Additional Maths book, which after i started on the Alevel work and took all the exams for the modules i did over the last 2 years so yeh.

Re: My Mathematical Memories MessageLearning ALevel makes you realise just how easy GCSE work is. The good thing is that most of the GCSE work is already covered in Key Stage 3 apart from surds, rules of sine and cosine, the quadratic formula, variation and graphs of shift and stretch. ALeel has tonnes of new topics. Well done for geting an A in all your modules so far. So, for an ALevel you need to do 6 modules? So, for instance, core 1 is just one module and you have to do 6?

Re: My Mathematical Memories Messageyeh, for the normal Alevel, you need 4 pure modules (Core1 through 4) and two applied modules (Mech14,Stats14,Disc13) Last edited by lucadeltodesco (20070728 19:34:38) The Beginning Of All Things To End. The End Of All Things To Come. #9 20070728 19:46:22
