algebra,and,arithmetic.jokes.that'sforhighband6lol.Hey everyone !!
For Maths ext-1 and 2, which topics do you guys find the hardest and why? Also, which topics do most band 6 (or E4) students lose marks on?
3U: perms and combs topic, maybe vector proofs cause some can get abstract but most 3U topics should be a breezeHey everyone !!

How'd you do in terms of marks for both of those subjects, if you don't mind me asking?3U: perms and combs topic, maybe vector proofs cause some can get abstract but most 3U topics should be a breeze
4U: proof, everything else is a vibe
honestly most the marks that my friends and I lost were to either reading the question incorrectly or basic algebra mistakes lol so keep practicing to minimise those silly mistakes
Got 97 and 93 respectively, 4U kinda messed up a 25% internal lol but overall were probably the most fun subjectsHow'd you do in terms of marks for both of those subjects, if you don't mind me asking?
elaborate.proofs is the easiest lmao. wtf.
not much algebra. just see what to do and it's easy lol.elaborate.
oh yeah I forgot hsc is too easy for younot much algebra. just see what to do and it's easy lol.
maybe 2020 hsc exam proofs was the easiest but some of those cambridge questions got me messed upproofs is the easiest lmao. wtf.
did all of them lol.maybe 2020 hsc exam proofs was the easiest but some of those cambridge questions got me messed up
brother I expect to see you 1st in state this yeardid all of them lol.
not happening m8. dr du too stronk. also @Qeru is actually scary. tho Dr Du probably still too stronk.brother I expect to see you 1st in state this year
Yall reckon Cambridge is the GOAT for maths ext 1 n 2? because our school uses Fitzpatrick and eh idk about that tbhin cambridge, for proofs, the hard questions seem to generally involve making some substitution to prove something. these substitutions tend to be pretty logical. more logical than some of the tricks you do in other topics.
hard integrals for one seems to have some really random stuff sometimes, but those aren't tested in HSC I would suppose.
imo, mechanics might have room for some pretty hard stuff, because it seems that the trend is working towards an answer, but if we delete a few parts given, i.e. exclude parts A), b), C) etc. or don't include an answer to reach, it might be quite hard to see what to do. then again, i haven't covered mech so what do I know lol.
complex also has room for whacky algebra, polynomial and geometry tricks. Again, if parts of a question are excluded, it becomes very hard to see what to do.
Of course, proofs are not an exception to the fact that if we remove parts of the question people won't see what to do. But it is perhaps less likely that parts of a proof question are excluded, otherwise it would become olympiad maths.
** Vector parametric 3d graphs ---> GG lol.
probably2F>2D.What's the hardest part of proofs for everyone? Mine's inequalities lol. (Haven't done 4u induction yet tho)
It is certainly true that questions can be made more difficult by giving less structure, but it is also true that structure can be less helpful.in cambridge, for proofs, the hard questions seem to generally involve making some substitution to prove something. these substitutions tend to be pretty logical. more logical than some of the tricks you do in other topics.
