Pure Mathematics C1C2 & C3C4 by David Rayner & Paul Williams (published 2004)
These books are for candidates working towards AS/A2 in Mathematics. They can be used both in the classroom and by students working on their own. There are explanations, worked examples and numerous exercises which, it is hoped, will help students to build up confidence. The authors believe that people learn mathematics through repetition. The questions are graded in difficulty throughout the exercises.
The work is collected into sections on Algebra, Coordinate Geometry, Sequences and Series, Calculus, Trigonometry and Logarithms. Mathematics at this level can be very satisfying for students and an effort has been made to provide enough ‘easy questions for weaker students for whom mathematics is not a specialist subject. It is hoped that such students can maintain their motivation by experiencing regular success. More able students will find plenty to stimulate them in the later questions in exercises as well as the past examination questions.
In response to the requests of many teachers a section of past examination questions has been included. Teachers will note that the specifications and questions set by all the main boards are very similar. This book can be used with confidence when preparing for the AS/A2 examinations set by all the main boards.
Thanks are due to AQA, EDEXCEL, MEI and OCR for kindly allowing the use of questions from their past mathematics papers.
Mechanics 1 for Edexcel by George Lane & David Rayner
Written in the same style as our two Pure Mathematics books, this book is packed with questions, explanations and worked examples as well as past Edexcel examination questions.
The authors are experienced teachers who know the problems that many students have when they study this subject for the first time. The concepts of force, mass, velocity and acceleration are introduced in a way that is easy to follow.
The emphasis is on learning mathematics through repetition, with hundreds of carefully graded questions.
