at least hes giving some form of "study hard" advice.. =X
4 unit is about 3/4 an extension on the 3 unit work and 1/4 "new" work. I mean, mechanics is an extension on further apps. of cal. and s.h.m etc, conic is an extension on the locus and parabola work, graphs is just harder 3 unit graphs, integration is just some more work on integration, polynomials is just polynomials with some complex numbers.Some people may perform extremely well in 3 unit yet do badly in 4 unit. Is 4 unit something entirely different from 3 unit?
New Senior Mathematics (ie Fitzpatrick) is probably the easiest of the 4 unit texts. You could just start going through that now (ie in year 11) and then when you start year 12 just move onto Cambridge or Patel for 4 unit.94% for 3u half yearly, 100% in the last common test at baulko high
what's a good book to start reading for 4u?
I completely agree... but the Fitzpatrick text is a good text to use while in year 11 to get a feel for 4 unit maths and get to know the basic concepts. But i would completely suggest using a much harder text when in year 12.You will definitely need to practice harder questions than what are in Fitzpatrick for Extension 2 maths...
Just try it for a while. They said anyone ranked 100 and less can do 4U at your school.my head is spinning. yay or nay to 4U?
because I don't really want to do just 10 units
originally I was going to do ext1 maths, ext1 english, french, chem and bio
but by the end of yr11, i really didn't like chem so i started thinking, maybe do 4U maths and 3U english and bio and french?
do 11units instead of 12 where i have to learn a whole extra subject
and i was also thinking because I dropped chem, I could use those free periods to work on maths
except...its 4U maths o_o and i'm not in the top 80
i dont know what to do!! because i'm not amazing in french and bio doesn't scale well either
should i just do 3U maths, but do really well in it?
would that be enough to get into psych at usyd?
i'm really scared of just doing 10 units...
oh, and i go to top 5 selective school, and one where the teachers don't force you to drop extension maths
