+ 1 I guess it really boils down to whether the position of the arms and hands, in the circumstances, was natural. One could argue that because the arms and hands were outstretched, they weren't in a natural position and so its a deliberate handball. The flip side is that it is natural for a...
2. ### Ajudicating (Debating)

If your uni has a debating or public speaking student society/club, I suggest you join it. Should get plenty of adjudicating opportunities there. Meet new friends, brush up on your debating skills, and it should be all good.

With Q1, you won't get a quadratic function. You will get something hideous YUCK. you MUST use diff, it can't be done any other way. WithQ2, you will get a quadratic, so you can use the vertex method. No need for dif (although it is way easier to dif) With Q3, same with Q2. You will get a...

10. ### Extension 1 MAths ...plzzz help!!!

(1 - 3 x - 4 x^2 )( 1 + 2/x )^6 = 1 - 3x well, you've got to get the constant terms - you need to find the right 'pairings' when you multiply the two binomial terms (the quadratic, and the one with power of 6) to get the independent terms. So, with 1 --> pair up with 6C0(1)^6 with - 3x -->...

12. ### What Year/Grade should we consider seriously studying?

I agree with the people who said to work hard at your maths in year 7 - 10 --> you WILL struggle with prelim and HSC maths if you don't get your fundamentals right. I would argue the same goes with English, particularly concentrating on language techniques and essay writing. Other subjects? Not...

17. ### In Urgent Need Of Help!

For your first step, this will take some time. Do have a think about it. Brainstorm if you have to. You don't have to suddenly blurt out a whole sentence in one go. Jot down key words you think have to relate to powerplay. e.g. ambition, deception, power (duh, lol), control, manipulation...
