The transition to A level maths
The transition from GCSE – or even IGCSE maths – to AS levels can come as a shock to many year 12 students. There are many reasons why students fail to cope with AS level maths, which include methods of study, style of teaching, and the type of work. I...
I would be very glad to have studied A Level Maths even if the only thing they had taught me was Bayes' theorem, so I'll teach it to you now and then we'll have a look at why it's so powerful...
Bayes' theorem states that:P(B|A) = P(A|B)P(B)/P(A)
Which in English means that:When we know:
So you have your GCSE maths result and you are all set for A Level maths. You got an A or even an A*, just as you hoped. You are good at maths and you are ready to carry on and learn some more stuff. How hard can it be?
Very hard. I don’t like to be the party pooper when you are still riding...
It is very interesting to see how my students gain confidence once they have grasped the 'idea' of the topics concerned. It is very important to take the time at the start to fully understand the principles and reasoning/ rational behind every thing that we are studying.

Well again, it's only a matter of definition, isn't it?But that depends on whether your definitions are well-founded and clear.
Many students find vectors a difficult task. For A level, the Edexcel syllabus requires position and line vector manipulation.
Think of vector equation of a line r= [x,y,z] + s[x2,y2,z2] as y=[c] + m[x] where c = [x,y,z] are vector position coordinates of a point on the line and [x2,y2,z2] are...
Things you might not think are important but make all the difference...
1. Don't make notes, have 'a page'Information on how to do questions should be used to practise new questions; copying out notes is pointless! 'Notes' should just be jotting downs of things you think you need to remember,...
After tutoring AS Maths for numerous years, there are two main messages I would like to get across to all students who plan to start A-level Maths.
Firstly, your GCSE grade do not have to influence how well you do in A Level Maths. I saw students struggling with AS Maths, who got an A in GCSE,...
