Having just gone through some of the lamest most bizarre articles I’ve ever seen on this blog, ermm … I really don’t know where to start.

But since the H2 Maths Paper 2 is going to be held tomorrow, I thought I might just leave you with a list of pure maths topics that didn’t appear in Paper 1 (and what I think might come out in Paper 2):

Inequalities (Modulus Function)

Parametric Equations (Tangent/Normal, Volume of Revolution & possibly together with Integration by substitution/part)

At the same time, I’ve also worked out the solutions for Tuesday’s H2 Maths Paper 1. Do check if they tally with your answers and inform me if you have discover any mistake. Also, like what my sister have said, feel free to discuss in the comments below should you disagree with any of the answers/methods described within.

Ok that’s all from me for now. Happy revising your tutorials and all the best for your Paper 2 tomorrow!

P.S. I find that baseball cap pretty lame and silly. I will try to get the designer to remove it from my head soon.

hey, can u reconfirm your answer on Qn 10 part b, regarding the total money in the bank at the end of 2 years. Apparently, the 1st term of the GP is omitted. Thx a lot.

Alright guys, I've modified the workings for questions 10(ii)(b) and 10(ii)(c) to include the first term of 1.02 (as brought up by Kenny and highlighted by kid & marc) and changed the answers accordingly.

Thanks for your feedback and do highlight if you find any further part(s) that needs to be amended.

P.S. Someone: It wasn't stated explicitly in Qn 1 to find the exact value of a, so it should be ok to leave the answer in 3sf.

OMG. the paper was soooooooooo easy. I'm quite pissed off i got 89 marks tho' 🙁 looks like ACJC's maths is really not bad. 🙂 way to go ACJC! go check out my blog kk? it's http://www.hergetaway.wordpress.com

hello mr loi. i am the real simeng. i didn't tag the above comment. haha. i guess that someone's really childish and so he used my name t flame me. please delete that comment and the subsequent comments made by 'Simeng.' okay? thankyou so much. (:

and thankyou for the answers! i think i did pretty badly actually. =S

OH. and. can u please send his email to my email account? this person has been constantly flamming me on my blog using the name clara, and he has insulted my family and all my friends. haha. thankyou.

actually, im not sorry at all. i have enjoyed a surge in blog readership. if theres anything i should be sorry for, im just sorry for the face that i have...

For qn 10 (i), if you read carefully, the question is not asking for the sum of terms even though they asked what is the total amount. Look. at jan: $ 10 Feb: $ 13 so when will his account have $ 2000? the method of doing should be looking for the term that is $2000 and not the sum of terms. i clarified this with a teacher.

Mr maths: I fully understand where you and your 'cher are coming from. First let me reproduce question 10(i) in its entirety:

A student saves $10 on 1 January 2009. On the first day of each subsequent month she saves $3 more than in the previous month, so that she saves $13 on 1 February 2009, $16 on 1 March 2009, and so on. On what date will she first have saved over $2000 in total? [5]

The way I read it is: She saves $10 on 1 Jan i.e. she puts in $10 She saves $13 on 1 Feb i.e. she puts in $13 She saves $16 on 1 Mar i.e. she puts in $16 ...

∴ based on what the question says, saving over $2000 in total ⇒ she has put in over $2000 in total ⇒ $10 + $13 + $16 ... > $2000 i.e.

> 2000

But if you are to look for the term that is $2000 i.e.

> 2000

you're in fact looking at the month whereby she PUTS in $2000 for that month, which is different from saving over $2000 in total.

h1 student! Sorry for the delay. If you still have the question paper with you, do check with my set of 2008 Oct/Nov H1 Maths suggested solutions which I've finally put up after literally receiving a kick from my sister (really!)

Mr Loi how to contact you? I have a friend who's going to JC next year and wants to do maths tuition with you, but is scared your slots fill up too quickly.

For qn 10 (i), if you read carefully, the question is not asking for the sum of terms even though they asked what is the total amount.

Look. at jan: $ 10

Feb: $ 13

so when will his account have $ 2000? the method of doing should be looking for the term that is $2000 and not the sum of terms. i clarified this with a teacher.
