Hey, can anyone SERIOUSLY do ANY of the advanced 3-u questions, especially the conics questions, in the Fitzpatrick 4u book? I havent been able to get question 1, 2 or the rest. Is my school just dumb or are they made impossible?
Always look at the fully worked solutions before attempting any question that you can't do.Originally posted by snoopwogg
I dont think you have got the crux of the situation here, these are not SIMPLE questions as you say. If they were simple to you i dont think you would still be completing your HSC this year. A few questions may be able to be worked out after hours of constant staring, but unless your day has 36 hours in it i dont think you've had the time to work through these questions and call them simple.
hmm i was just about to say...Originally posted by Calculon
How is conics harder 3u?
i think by checking worked answers with yours are the way to go. you might have made silly mistakes here and ther and not realised it. i dont think memorizing steps is the way to go-i think you need to practice as many questions as possible and mentally derive an approach clearly in your head as to how to answer it. Like for concics-proving this is that requires some planning otherwise you would get nowhereOriginally posted by stupid idiot

You don't learn from getting a question wrong or making a mistake (thats a misconception), but you learn from looking at the right solutions and memorizing every step of it by heart.
