Post your predictions for what you may think will come up in this years MX2 exam, in particular, question 16 :)
Also discuss any thoughts relating to the upcoming exam.

I predict that there will be a nasty conics question in question 16.

Probs a hard complex numbers, seems like q16 complex numbers is a trend in recent years iirc. And most likely an induction this year since they've barely had one recently

Q16 Circle Geo hasn't been asked for a while.

Hopefully they give one this year!! I like circle geo because you just have to draw big diagrams haha

There might an integral and you have to prove something by induction or indexing(not sure what its called) similar to the last q in sydney grammar in 2016.

Hopefully! The hard questions with integrals are quite fun but challenging

Hopefully it's one of those years with no harder probability Q in Q16 :lol:
I feel like there's a cap on difficulty for topics like integration, not saying theyre easy, but how harder can they get? maybe that's just me not seeing enough hard integration Qs:P
But yeah my money's on a)complex numbers b)circle geo and c)induction

Probs an integration/binomial 'question thing' where you see multiple parts etc.

Binomial = gg hahaha

Conics last question would be disappointing

Start of prelim

"What is circle geometry and why do I need to put up with this cancer"

By the end of HSC

"FUCK YES CIRCLE GEOMETRY"

I hope there won't be probability again. Probably won't since it was there for 2 years in a row (2016 and 2015)

I wouldn't mind an Integration or Graphs one for Q16 though lol.

Re: HSC 2017 Predictions Thread [MX2]
I really hope there are qs on proving some interesting results, like the Basel problem from 2010

Circle geo is fine too, but yeah probability = gg

That was a great question hopefully we get something like that

Hopefully we get a question on proving pi or e being irrational :) those questions tend to be a lot of fun

I really liked the probability one in the HSC paper (2008?), where it involved n number of balls and you had to choose.

Oh yeah that one was good. 2006 Q5d is pretty hard too for probability

4U in a nutshell OMG

I reckon Mechanics - haven't seen since 2013 and an induction question as Pikachu said before.

As long as conics or binomial isn't q16!!

I reckon some question from previous 14-15 BOS trials like what they did in 2016 hsc
