    Questions about the sample paper on vectors from

    Hi all, I am having a hard time trying to understand the wording of the following questions. First of all, for part b), I am really confused by what it means by "in the opposite direction of z perpendicular to z". We're talking about only one vector here so how can one vector both in the...

    I am self-learning mechanics (projectile motion). How do I solve the question below?

    Hi all, I have just learnt the basic of 4u mechanics and I feel quite overwhelmed by the number of formulae I have to remember for this topic. I also don't know which formulae I should use. I am getting stuck on the question below, I got up to the expression linking t and alpha but since I don't...

    "Describe the motion..." mechanics question

    Hi all, I am a bit confused by the last part of the following question. I wonder whether the velocity will ever each 0 or not. The thing is v=cos^2(x) which means when x=pi/2 v=0. However, the expression for x in terms of t is x=tan^-1(t) which means that each will never reach pi/2? If that is...

    COVID-19 and school closures

    Hi all, hope you have all been well. I wonder if school is still optional next term? What I mean by optional is you don't have to go to school unless you don't have anyone at home to supervise you, exactly like what we are doing at the end of this term. Are they going to keep classes online for...

    How do you know when to use u-substitution for integration and what u is? (example included)

    Hi, the title pretty much speaks for itself. There are so many methods to use in 4u integration so how do you identify when to use u-substitution and what the value of u is? I came across the following question (part c) in which it already hints at using u-substitution and gives you the suitable...

    HSC Marks Thread 2019

    Congratulations on your 94.7 ATAR. That's amazing! It just occurred to me that if you're an international student, the cut off for you might be different from that for domestic students (usually 5 marks lower). For example, I'm pretty sure atar cut off for med for international students is like...

    Do they allow you to use “reversing the step” in the HSC? (Nature of proof)

    Hi, thanks for your interest in my thread. Does that mean that in the HSC it is simply not enough just to write “reverse the steps to get the proof”?

    Do they allow you to use “reversing the step” in the HSC? (Nature of proof)

    so in the hsc, simply writing “reverse the steps to get the proof” is not enough? Does it mean that I need to re-write the whole thing? If so, it’s gonna be really time consuming. I reckon I’ll use contradiction as you told. Thank you so much for your reply

    Do they allow you to use “reversing the step” in the HSC? (Nature of proof)

    Allow me to elaborate on the title. So the new syllabus has introduced a new topic called “nature of proof” which basically consists of proving problems. At tutor, I was told that according to NESA, you are not allowed to assume something is true and work backwards to the end. However, at school...

    Thoughts on maths 3u/4u textbook

    Highly second this. I have purchased this and can conform that the questions are very interesting. The only downside is that it contains some typo errors since it’s new and the author hasn’t published solution for year 12 3u yet.
