A number of students are concerned and anxious about the grade will achieve in their Maths exams. Having tutored for more than 8 years and seen students of varied ability levels, my advise to all is actually quite straight forward - practice, practice and more practice. Maths is a skill which...
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)

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...
