On both exams, at the end of the paper, you are given a VCE Maths Methods Formula sheets with some of the key formulas you may need in the exam. To be honest, they pretty much use the same thing year after year, so it isnâ€™t specialized to the exam you will be sitting but still has some useful stuff on it.

You can check out the latest formula sheet below:

Once you have studied all the tops is worth briefly going through this sheet and ensuring you have an understanding of each of the topic (though it maybe in a slight different notation than you were taught or are used to).

The topics that are covered on the VCE Maths Methods Formula Sheet are as follows:

**Mensuration**

This is a brief outline of the area and volume of some of a few common shapes you would have studied from Year 7 to 10.

**Calculus**

This covers the methods of differentiation and integration for main types of problems you would come across. It also includes the basic formulas of the chain rule, product rule and quotient rule.

**Probability**

The first part (the top rectangle) is quick summary of the Year 7 to 10 probability. It includes probability of conditional events, the symbols used to represent means and the two formulas for variance.

The next part has the basic form of Discrete Random Variables and Continuous Random Variables, the two categories that VCE Methods focuses on. It also has two columns with the formulas to figure out the mean and variance of either Discrete and Continuous Probability

**Sample Proportions**

This is the basic formulas used in the Statistics topic, which was introduced in 2016 and is basically a part of probability. It covers how to find population proportion, mean, standard deviation and the approximate confidence interval.
