Resource summary

Core 1
1. Chapter 1 ~ Algebra and Functions
1. Like terms
1. Multiplying brackets
1. Rules of Indices
1. Factorising
1. Surds
1. √(ab)=√(a)x√(b)
1. √(a/b)=√(a)/√(b)
1. Rationalising
1. Multiply top and bottom by denominator with opposite central sign
2. Chapter 2 ~ Quadratic Functions
1. y = f(x) = ax^2 + bx +c
1. Solve quadratic equations by factorisation
1. Completing the square
1. 1) Write formula > y=x^2 + bx + c
1. 2) Make a gap appear > y=x^2 + bx ________________ + c
1. 3) In the gap add on, then take off (0.5*b)^2 > y=x^2 + bx + (0.5*b)^2 - (0.5*b)^2 + c
1. 4) Add brackets > y=(x^2 + bx + (0.5*b)^2) - (0.5*b)^2 + c
1. 5) Factorise large bracket and tidy up numbers at the end

1. Solve similar to equations
1. Number lines
1. Sketches
2. Chapter 4 ~ Sketching Curves
1. Cubic Curves
1. y = ax^3 + bx^2 + cx + d
1. Use factors of equation to work out where the curve crosses the x-axis
1. x-axis intersections are when x = 0
1. eg (x-2) > intersection at (2,0). (x+5) > intersection at (-5,0)
2. y = x^3
1. Smooth curve through (0,0)
3. Reciprocals
1. y = k/x
1. When k>0, curves appear in quadrants where both values are either positive or negative
1. When k<0, curves appear in quadrants where one value is positive and the other is negative
2. The further away k is from 0, the further away the curves are from the axes
3. Transformations
1. f(x+a) > moves whole curve -a in the x-direction
1. f(x)+a > moves whole curve +a in y-direction
1. f(ax) > multiply x-coordinates by (1/a)
1. af(x) > multiply y-coordinates by a
2. Chapter 5 ~ Coordinate Geometry in the (x,y) Plane
1. y = mx + c
1. m is the gradient and c is the y-intercept
2. ax + by +c = 0
1. a, b, and c are all integers
2. Gradient between two points = (y2 - y1)/(x2 - x1)
1. Equation of a line using one point and the gradient > y - y1 = m(x - x1)
1. Equation of a line between two points > (y - y1)/(y2 - y1) = (x-x1)/(x2 - x1)
2. Two lines
1. Perpendicular
1. Gradient = -1/m
1. The product of two perpendicular lines is -1
2. Parallel
1. Same gradient
2. Chapter 6 ~ Sequences and Series
1. General term > nth term
1. a + (n-1)d
2. Un = 4n + 1
1. C1 only has arithmetic sequences
1. a > first term
1. d > common difference
2. Sum of an arithmetic sequence
1. Sn = (n/2)[2a + (n - 1)d]
1. sn = (n/2)(a + L)
1. L is the last term
2. ∑_(r=1)^10(5+2r) =7+9+...+25
2. Chapter 7 ~ Differentiation
1. Used to work out the gradient of a tangent
1. f(x) = x^n
1. f'(x) = nx^(n-1)
1. To get f'(x), multiply power by number in front of x, then reduce power by 1 for each part separately
2. (d^2y)/(dx^2) = f''(x)
3. Chapter 8 ~ Intergration
1. If dy/dx = x^n, the y = (1/(n+1))(x^(n+1)) + c
1. ∫x^n dx= x^(n+1)/(n+1)+c
1. Calculate c when given any point that the function of the curve passes through
1. Reverse of differentiation
