Here's what to expect in Methods in Year 12!
If you’re going into Year 12, you will cover most of the Year 11 in the first two terms, plus a few additional topics thrown into the mix.
You will also go into Calculus in much more detail and learn a variety of new techniques.
The biggest difference, however, is that Probability becomes a major topic and takes up almost a third of the year. For example, you will learn to use Calculus in Probability (which is actually not as bad as it sounds).
Although a lot of the content is similar, the additional topics means that classes move a lot faster and the questions are more challenging. It’s even more important to understand the concepts thoroughly AND do plenty of tough practise questions as early as possible.
I’ve written a workbook that enables any student (even if they struggled in Year 11) to understand the concepts and contains plenty of exam-style questions with fully worked solutions to help prepare you for texts. It is the same Workbook I use in my weekly classes (The Maths Methods Academy) and has helped students gain a dramatic increase in their confidence, understand and marks. You can learn more below:
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
