Here's what to expect in Methods in Year 11!
If you’re going into Year 11, in the first term you’ll generally cover a lot of sketching graphs and the algebra related to this.
After that, there is also bit of probability and a few other graph related topics which you haven’t seen yet.
The newest topic you’ll cover is called “Calculus” which is a lot scarier than it sounds – it’s mainly about calculating the gradient of graphs (click here to get a simple intro).
I’ve kept this as simple as possible, but there is a great deal of new stuff in Year 11 and it moves a lot faster than Year 10. Each topic is built upon the earlier ones, so make it’s worth staying on top of each topic or it’ll make it a lot harder in the long run. Almost everything you learn is vitally important to Year 12, so it’s better that you get prepared now rather than falling behind in the future. If you can, get some study done in the holidays or come along to one of my Workshops.
I’ve just released a Workbook which will make studying Year 11 Methods A LOT easier. It covers almost half the year, has exam style questions and fully worked solutions. This has been the secret weapon for many students to dramatically increasing their marks. Click the image below to learn more:
Hope this helps! As I mentioned, I'm keeping this simple so that I don't confuse everyone! If you have a specific question about what to expect next year, send me a message below! - Alex Bell
