    its tedious, not exactly hard

    Re: 4 unit Topic ratings

    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.

    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?

    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
