Hey guys, we have finished our first extension topic induction. As I've heard that doing past papers is the best way to study, my question now is should I do all past paper induction questions in one go like in one or two weekends, or should I do one or two a week spread over the year?


Thank you!

Learn all the content ahead instead of past papers at first. Then and only then do past papers.

Try and do at least 3 induction questions a week, one summation type, one divisibility type and one inequality type to make sure you don't get rusty.

Try and find any trial hsc papers from the past 10 or so years, they usually have at least one induction question in them.

Do the earlier papers first so you can save the newer ones for once you’ve done all the topics as practice tests.

Hey, thanks for the reply. We actually don't do any inequality induction questions anymore. But anyway, so you think doing them over the year is better than doing a bunch of them now, and then just a bunch before tests and then final exams?

no u dont need to. once uve finished a topic well (obv make sure youve done heaps of q) move on an quickly learn all of them so by the time its trials ur just doing past papers. doing revision inductin everyweek wont work and is ridiculous

Hey, yeah this is where I'm leaning to as well. I'm only even considering the other option because a maths teacher told me that doing one a week is good.
