    Re: Announcement from BOSTES - significant change to calculus courses

    What's the main reason some people aren't happy with the formula sheet?

    If it's no big deal for you why are you complaining? I'll also say that there are a lot more formulae you must remember in year 12 vs. year 10...
    might vary from person to person I guess. Personally as I practice..the formulas just stick to me..so the formula sheet will be useless. But I cant change shit so gotta accept it.

    Nah I had 0 problem remembering formulae in year 10. Yet I still would appreciate a formulae sheet. One less thing to worry about.

    Re: Announcement from BOSTES - significant change to calculus courses

    Among Maths teachers, I believe this is the main reason to support a formula sheet: reduce anxiety for students who fear forgetting formulas in the exam (even though they probably do know them after all the practice they've done).

    Of course, the exam will change in response to this development. Probably not too much, though. There is still a need to test students' ability to select the right formula and use it correctly.

    Re: Announcement from BOSTES - significant change to calculus courses

    I don't really mind the new formula sheet (more like booklet, tbh), but it's a bit annoying that they have plenty of 3U-specific stuff and no 4U specific stuff. At least throw in the circular motion formulas in there.

    Note they will now include vectors and are considering including matrices too.

    Looks like the 2U course will actually be more like 3U now

    Hopefully they won't give the poor 2U kids a 4U question at least.

    But to be fair, some counting was already taught in general maths. Just probably not as perms and combs

    Here are some summaries:

    http://4unitmaths.com/vectors-summary.pdf

    http://4unitmaths.com/matrices-summary.pdf

    Other than that you can get pdfs of these books:

    Bronson, R., Matrix Operations, McGraw-Hill, 1989

    Lipschutz, S., Linear Algebra, McGraw-Hill, 1968

    Spiegel, M.R., Vector Analysis, McGraw-Hill, 1959 (Chapters 1 and 2 only)

    And as has been said before it will probably begin implementation in 2018.

    This site can’t be reached

    www.angelfire.com’s server DNS address could not be found.

    ->So I'll look at it later. And a lot of the things I got taught at uni already such as normal distribution, just haven't heard of "univariate" etc.

    Are they actually gonna succeed implementing it in 2018? braintic voiced his doubts before.

    Yes. I noticed that too.

    I've changed the links:

    That should do till I work out what is happening with angelfire.

    Oh that doesn't seem too bad. I know most of this linear algebra I'm reading.

    Still not sure about the new statistics though

    Tywebb maybe host your HTML on Github; and host some of the hidden files on fourunitmaths.com

    Question tywebb, what would you call your site?

    I didn't make a statistics summary but you can get a pdf of

    Spiegel, M.R., Statistics, McGraw-Hill, 1961

    on the internet just like the other books I mentioned before.

    I won't be putting stuff on github for now.

    I'd hope that I'll learn all the stuff by second year though.
