            I have had a quick look at the mathsantics videos but haven’t used them with students yet. I will get them to have a look.. My first impression was that some of the graphics were a little distracting! Have your students tried using them?

    im confused on question 2a in the area of sector question could you please explain it? I just thought you would do 10 squared instead of using 20

    • Permalink  ⋅ Reply

      MathedUp

      June 7, 2015 at 9:39pm

      I will try..
      You usually have the angle in these types of questions.. You would then use the angle and divide it by 360 to find what fraction of a circle you have got.

      In this question, you have been given the arc length instead of the angle. This means you need to know the circumference of the whole circle in order to work out what fraction of a circle you have.

      The circumference of the whole circle would be 20pi. As the arc length is 15, the fraction of the circle we have is 15/(20pi).

      You need to work out this fraction and multiply it by the area of the whole circle (100pi). This will give you the area of the sector..

      I hope this is clear enough, let me know if you have any further questions.

    you added the 3 at the start to the 15, but the 15 is still on the end as well. The answer should be 18+6squareroot5 not 33+6squareroot5

    hi, im a mature student, have to do a maths gcse and im stuggling with what to revise, i took a maths gcse back in june and november last year. i found that in both papers they really focused on algebra and quadratics. this year i will be doing foundation in the hope that they havnt spiced that up too. i just dont know where to start if im honest and im looking for some advice as because of failing, my nursing place at uni was given away 🙁

      I would suggest you start by downloading last years Foundation exam paper (June 2015) and giving it a go. You can then use this to get an idea of which topics you aren’t sure about. Once you have done both papers and a self assessment, send me a message on here letting me know which topics you didn’t understand and I will help you out together a plan. I’m sorry to hear that your nursing place was given away but I’m sure that we will be able to get you to where you need to be with your maths and hopefully you can reapply. I look forward to hearing from you again soon 🙂

        the last question the answer should be 110 cm squared

    Question 18A on algebra – collecting like terms is incorrect to my knowledge. It is 3f instead of 5f.

    Hi nice work, just wondering if their is a mistake in set 82 (standard form). Because question 1b is supposed to be 8.25 * 103 or 8.25 *10^3.

    for the ratio question *14, I think you may have gotten the answer slightly wrong. Talil only needs 60kg of sand and he has 85kg, therefore he can make the 180kg of cement. He doesn’t need anymore sand.
