The idea here is for you to work at a pace and timescale that suits you. Use your notes and textbooks and do not worry about how many hours it takes to complete a paper.

Only send me half a paper at a time. Feel free to email me with queries about other topics you are working on.

Once we have completed the 8 Mechanics 1 papers we will concentrate on Statistics 1 papers to consolidate knowledge of topics introduced earlier in the course.

Some questions have been annotated 'No longer on Syllabus'. Miss those questions out.

Other questions are on correlation and regression. If you are supplied with tabulated bivariate data you can attempt these on your calculator. However, if you are given summary statistics for the data you can either miss the question out or, better still, use the formulae below to attempt the questions to increase your insight into correlation and regression.

View this as an opportunity to consolidate your knowledge of Mechanics topics that were introduced earlier in the course. Questions on topics that have been moved to Further Maths have been identified for you to omit.

Aim to complete two papers per week for the next four weeks. Once this work is complete we will do a Mech 1 paper under exam conditions.

This is a very important topic. Historically, it has been heavily examined by Edexcel. For example, on the June 2013 Core 3 paper there were two questions on Functions accounting for 18 of the 75 marks on the paper. Further down this web page you completed Functions questions from 2008-10 (blog entry dated 21 Nov 18). The questions supplied here are taken from 2011-13 papers.

Parametric Equations questions often involve differentiation, integration and eliminating the parameter to obtain the cartesian equation of the curve. You have not yet covered the necessary integration techniques, so your exam question will not require integration. The further practice questions involve integration techniques which will be necessary for your final exam. For now you can practise the non-integration parts of these questions.

Here is a Summary of Trigonometric Identities you need to memorise. Do not rely on them being in the Formulae Booklet as you need to recognise them within the context of problems you are looking to solve.

Here are three Venn Diagram Questions you may like to attempt before watching a video solution to the first and viewing written solutions to all three.

The Venn Diagram 11 mark question is one where the diagram will require probabilities rather than raw data in the circles. Set notation will be used. Here is a comprehensive exercise of 8 questions on this topic.
