yesterday was SCIENCE today is MATHS
the scaling on that 2nd question is massively misleading mind you
too much effort
everything on there could be done mentally - it was multiple choice ffs
It's quite a steep graph at approaching 90 degrees; can't accurately place the y value at all myself except to say that it's probably between 0.2 and 0.4
Should have gone with my instinct :P
Highly doubtful they'd be asking GCSE pupils to perform SOHCAHTOA calculations in their heads, unless things have radically changed since I was at school
Multiple choice doesn't mean mental arithmatic
I'm really good at maths, gonna assign myself an honorary 7/7
I got confused by you getting confused between adj/hyp and adj/3.4.
None of it was as awkward as this, I call bullshit.
The angle in the diagram is nothing like 72 degrees!
and now I can forget about maths forever ok.
That's good stuff.
Old skool style
had to use a calculator and notepad though.
Unless you have access to Trig tables OR have them memorised. GCSE pupils would have their scientific calculators
Never could do triangle math
I knew that maths degree would come in handy for something one day.
That was a lot easier than I thought it would be.
completely forgot all my triangle maths stuff
Can't wait for the BBC Magazine's English exam where I get to write a diary from the viewpoint of Romeo. THAT'S where I shine.
Take away 2 from 3, that leaves me,
I'll leave you running wet just like the sea,
If there's a door give me the key,
I'll push it in, twist it around and run free,
Good recovery from my 3 in the science one.
this nation's going to the dogs
and I'm not ashamed to say 4 out of 7.
copied Marckee's answers
Just as well as I teach it for a living...
Was reading a book about complex analysis today FOR FUN, so this sort of thing can go hang.
