Re: Shapes and Measures TAQ's

As you have the volume of the prism and the length you can use the formula for volume to work out the area of the cross section by sort of flipping the formula round. So Volume = Area of Cross section X Length (this is the same for all prisms) By rearranging the formula we get Volume ÷ length = Area...

Re: Unit 2 - Fractions Help

Hi, For these types of questions it is important to realise that you just take them as simple sums according to the order of calculations or Bidmas. So for part e) we have 1 2/3 + 7/8 - 3/4 Using the order of calculations we would do the addition first and then the subtraction. So we do 1 2/3 + 7/8 ...

Re: Unit 2 SAQ 8 and 9

Hi, It isn't clear from your post whether you managed to complete SAQs 6 and 7 successfully (I'm assuming that you did). If you did then SAQ8 has similar questions with slightly different wording. The method that you would use would be exactly the same. For SAQ 9 you are multiplying and dividing whi...

Re: mental health

Hi, For this essay I think the assessment criteria are very helpful when working on an essay plan because they do split the essay into sensible sections. I would start with a review of the ethical theories. That way, once you have introduced them you can apply them throughout the rest of the essay. ...

Re: Application of Number, am I stupid?

Hi,

You have all of the information you need to draw the graph in the tables of mortality rates. You will have the years on the x axis and the mortality rates on the y axis. To draw a combined graph you will need to add the totals for men and women together.

Hope this helps!

Hi,

The end of May is getting pretty close so you will have to work hard to get it all finished in time. Have a word with your tutor if you are feeling worried.

Re: Introduction to Application of Numbers

Hi Clare, If we look at similar examples then this might help you with the assessment questions. Let's consider 1/3 + 3/4 x 1/5 First we use BIDMAS to tell us where to start. We know that Multiplication is carried out before addition so we would carry out 3/4 x 1/5 first. With Multiplication the pro...

Re: Maths HELP

Hi Jackie, I'm not sure what you have written for this so it is quite hard to know where you might be going wrong. Three figure bearings are angles but measured in a particular way. They are always measured in a clockwise direction from a North line. In the assessment, no measuring is necessary beca...

Re: FRACTIONS!!!

Hi Elle, Hopefully I can help you. Firstly don't panic when there is more than one operator in the sum eg. 1/3 + 3/4 x 2/5 or when your sum contains brackets To solve these successfully you need to remember your 'order of calculations' or BIDMAS. In the sum above you would do 3/4 x 2/5 first and the...
