well done this powerpoint was really useful for me as a student :)
Is it possible to set worksheets that have already been created by yourself Dr Frost to our students - for example this assessment? Thank you
I'm new round here. When there are v1 and v2 of A Level Chapter Assessments, what does that mean? Are they equally good? Does one surpass the other? Do they complement each other assessing different aspects of the Chapter?
Slide 20 - It is not acceptable to start with (to) the conclusion - should 'to' be removed?
You're correct Mr McClean. I've been meaning to reupload my slides with the fix for a while - now reuploaded!
Unless I'm missing something proof by contradiction is in the A level specification (albeit not in AS), contrary to what it says on slide 24. Otherwise thanks for your excellent slides which are invaluable!
Thanks David - error fixed.
I can't find any + & - of fractions in either chapter 1 or chapter 7. They are in the textbook in chapter 1 though I would put them here with other fractions work
Slide 22, (9,8,8,7,7) replaces (9,7,7,6,6) in answer.
I agree with GL. Please see page 11 of the edexcel specification. It says that proof of irrationality of root 2 is needed, students do need to know proof by contradiction. From an MEI course I have been on, I was led to believe they should be about to repeat this for other numbers other than 2 also.
Proof by contradiction including the irrationality of root 2 is mentioned on the edexcel syllabus but you say here it's not on A level, only STEP - have I misunderstood?
