    Re: 4 unit Topic ratings

    Umm, I can't actually remember all the topics =\
    But I kind of liked 4U integration, complex numbers was alrightish and conics was the absolute shits.

    Re: 4 unit Topic ratings

    integration is the easiest and harder 3unit i the hardest IMO. i could never do the mathematical induction for 4u

    Re: 4 unit Topic ratings

    so far: easiest to hardest:

    - conics
    - complex
    - polynomials
    - graphs (im shit!)

    complex numbers can get a little tricky. and it was hard for me to grasp the concepts at first.

    Re: 4 unit Topic ratings

    I found Harder 3U the hardest and most annoying.

    My favourite was Mechanics. It was also the easiest for me (especially Circular Motion).

    Then the others were no different to me.

    Graphs < Polynomials = Complex (they're about the same) < Integration < Conics

    Hardest to easiest (so far):

    Harder Inequalities = Harder Circles
    Harder Induction
    Conics
    Polynomials = Complex

    Re: 4 unit Topic ratings

    Complex Numbers --> Polynomials --> Conics

    I hate conics. I can get the basic stuff right, you know like how to graph them - but it's when you chuck the frigging theoreticals in, such as: A tangent to ellipse 1 meets ellipse 2 at points P and Q. If ellipse 1 is this equation, and ellipse 2 has that equation, show the ellipses at P and Q on that ellipse meet at right angles.

    Overall Polynomials was epic - especially the sums and products of roots. Awesome algebra.

    Have done Conics, integration, polynomials and complex.

    Liked conics the most, was fun once you get your head around it.
    Hardest to easiest

    Conics > complex > poly > integration

    Probably for me from easiest to hardest:
    Graphs, Volumes, Integration, Complex Numbers, Doing Mechanics now, and have done some Harder 3u(inequalities)

    Easiest to hardest:

    integration
    polynomials
    graphing = volumes = complex numbers (gah vectors)
    conics
    mechanics
    harder 3u (induction was okayish but inequalities slayed me)

    Re: 4 unit Topic ratings

    Integration
    Graphs
    Polynomials
    Volumes
    Complex
    Probability
    Circle Geo
    Mechanics
    Harder 3u Playing with algebra (a,b,c)
    Conics
    Harder 3u crazy binomials
    Crazy complex

    Complex has a very large range the hardest complex questions you can find are generally harder than most other topics.

    Re: 4 unit Topic ratings

    Integration < Graphs < Volumes < Mechanics < Conics < Complex < Polynomials < Harder 3U (doesn't really count)

    Disliking polynomials because I never did any work for it... >.< (the complex polynomial work, that is)

    Re: 4 unit Topic ratings

    Personally, I find Mechanics to be easier than Conics. The funny thing is, I hate physics.

    Easiest to hardest:


    1. Integration
    2. Polynomials
    3. Volumes
    4. Complex (This can range from 1 to 7)
    5. Mechanics
    6. Conics
    7. Harder 3u

    ANYTHING BUT CONICS.

    Graphs and Integration were the easiest, conics was the hardest and all the others were somewhere in between.

    Are you kidding? 4 marks for sketching an ellipse x^2/a^2 + y^2/b^2 = 1 (and of course stating the eccentricity, finding focii, directries and etc), in my opinion, is ... not difficult.

    And the proofs are pretty much all generic (eg. proving the focal property etc).
