Key revision points for C2 Core A-Level Maths

Key revision points for C2 Core A-Level Maths

A collection of key points to remember for C2 Core AS Maths. Prevents against silly mistakes and allows students to reach top marks! Possible mistakes collected from the questions and mark schemes from 20+ past papers. Relevant to C2 content: > Proof > Logarithms > Integration > Differenciation & differenciation from first principles > Sequences and series > Sectors > Trigonometry and graphs > Trig identities > Log and exponential graphs > Translations > Significant figures > Trapezium area calculations Information divided into clear headings with very important points highlighted in yellow. Recommended for A-Level Maths students taking C2, especially relevant for OCR MEI exam board. An invaluable collection of points to have before an exam.

50 slide Powerpoint: Challenging Higher Maths Logs Exponentials Questions Worked Solutions

50 slide Powerpoint: Challenging Higher Maths Logs Exponentials Questions Worked Solutions

50 slide Powerpoint on the topic of Logs and Exponentials, which is intended to challenge more able Higher Maths students who may be considering continuing their Maths studies by taking the Advanced Higher course. The Powerpoint begins with a brief revision of the main rules, followed by 30 multi-part questions. Many of these problem solving questions are multi-topic (such as relating to composite functions, transformations of functions, inverse functions, circles, quadratic theory, cubics and synthetic division, straight line theory, proofs, surds, indices etc) and some require changes of log base, the use of exponential substitutions, and the factorising of exponential and logarithmic functions. There are several examples of finding constants and plotting graphs for log-linear functions. Fully Worked Solutions (including many graphs) included.

exponentials 3- e and continuous change

exponentials 3- e and continuous change

aimed at KS5 pupils, developed for my IB Standard Level class it covers the exponential function and continuous change. full worked examples and questions with answers included in the ppt works well with the other lessons on exponentials. hope you enjoy please leave feedback, cheers

Exponential functions 2 - Growth and Decay

Exponential functions 2 - Growth and Decay

Second in a series of lessons on exponentials, particularly growth and decay. Devised to work with IB SL. worked through examples, reflection, group work and individual work built in as well discussion points. Hope you enjoy please leave feedback thank you

Introduction to exponentials and exponential curves

Introduction to exponentials and exponential curves

Aimed at first lesson with KS4/5 pupils on exponentials. (will be using it with my IB year 12s) Covers what an exponential is, recaps the index laws (rules of exponents), links in to domain and range of functions and transforming functions so would work well after covering those topics. discussion tasks, starter activity, drawing and comparing graphs hope you enjoy, please leave feedback in a review (the 2 files are basically the same, one with UK terms used the other with the terms needed in the IB) cheers

Logarithms and Trigonometry Spot the Mistake

Logarithms and Trigonometry Spot the Mistake

I made this for my A Level (second year) students, to address misconceptions surrounding trigonometry, logs, natural logs and exponentials. In each case, I got them to explain what is wrong with each "solution", then work together to create a correct version.
