How did you lot find it? Found there was maybe one question that might have stumped people entirely (parabola) other than that it wasn't too bad, in my opinion anyway. What do you think?

LydiaSheehan
Ordinary or higher ?

Thought everything was fine 7 and 13 were the only tricky ones but I'll get some marks anyway

Thought that it was extremely tight for time..... Some of the questions were pretty tough (higher level)

couldnt believe there was no financial maths! chuffed!

Im glad others found it some way difficult.. Bar inductions, 1st principles and the simultaneous eqn i found it really hard. All ive been hearing is how 'easy' it was.

exam
I couldn't find the formula for the parabola and I wasn't too sure how to find the angle but other than that it was nice

How did people find the angle?

I thought paper 1 was good, did anyone else feel like there was loads of unnecessary time? i was finished well before the 2 and a half hours.

For ordinary ^

Anyone else get 2.771 as the x cooridinate for the max point of the parabola??

aimer
Did anyone get fractions for the y coordinate for both the points of the simultaneous equations? One was like 15/11 ??

Deane15
Aimer I got the same for the simultaneous

aimer
Woohoo 😁I had to do it twice because it wasn't working the first time

CaolanH
Yeah i got 2.771 as well...What did every get for 9 (i)

exam
I got 7 stages I think for that part

aimer
I got 7 too! But did he just add them up or was there supposed to be a way of coming up with an equation??

CaolanH
Yeah I got 7 is well...I thought it was a fairly but I messed up the bloody simulations question

shannon8
How did everyone get the equation for the parabole? I said the max was the vertex and put it into (xxmax)² + ymax and expanded?

aimer
How did you know that formula??

ronanomalley
i used simultaneous eqns to get the parabola eqn

shannon8
I'm not sure if it's right but for curves which are x² functions thats how you'd find the vertex or whatever it's called, i could've been completely wrong it was more of an educated guess

exam
How did people tackle that question where you had to find the coordinates of the point it would travel indefinitely to, for part of the last question I think

ronanomalley
did anyone else get (3.2, 1.6) for where the point the thing was travelling indefinitely to

aimer
I put down that it was heading towards 8 because it wasn't going past 7.9999

exam
yep I got 3.2,1.6 too I think, I went to 8.00000 by adding up the contents of the table

I done simultaneous equations to find the equation of the parabola as well i messed up my proof by induction question and the inverse function one also unfortunately

cillbis
For the parabola, I think it was just a matter of changing c which would translate, and c was 2. Not what I did in the exam :/ it was 7 stages for that twisty question I think

Aaron125
I got 8 stages when i filled into the geometric formula
