And the proofs are pretty much all generic (eg. proving the focal property etc).
its tedious, not exactly hard

Volumes of fucked up cross sections tops the rest so far.

I epic failed my conics assessment. I got the question "Prove that the equation of a tangent at P is *insert equation*"

And I was like "Uhh... it just is."

Of course I got zero marks - but then I started to get it later on. So now I'm now somewhat competent with hyperbolas and clueless with ellipses.

Still, I maintain it's just monotonous and annoying - not exactly hard.

Really, I've found MX2 isn't hard - it's just knowing what to do.

graphing, complex, circle geometry, and integration were easy as hell
mechanics was also quite easy if u knew wat u were doing
harder 3unit + some of the harder inductions were nuts

Have you ever tried that past HSC question regarding the irrationality of e?

.... If you can't even do that why are you doing 4U. Seriously even a 2U kid can do that.

Usually things in Question 7 and 8 are what makes me dumbstruck.

9. ## Re: 4 unit Topic ratings

hardest would have to be mechanics
and then conics coz of the algebra
and then complex coz questions can get tricky. Volumes would have to tie with complex.
lastly, polynomials and integration are the easiest coz questions are just really repetitive.

So harder 3 unit is no problem for you?

lol haha.

easiest is curve sketching by FAR

13. ## Re: 4 unit Topic ratings

Prove the irrationality of 'e'? Nope. But hey, as a student - I'm regurgitating what my teacher said. As a student is only as good as the teacher... I think.

And I had a mental blank on the prove the tangent thing... it's because I was moved to the sick bay to do the exam because I was the only person doing the subject and I couldn't use the entire exam room. So I was robbed of air <_<

easiest to hardest:
-curve sketching
-complex numbers
-integration
-volumes
-polynomials
-conics
-mechanics
-harder 3 unit
in my opinion are easiest to hardest

hmmm, i find curve sketching kinda challenging

4U induction is the easiest harder 3U topic imo
