Revision Checklist
Unit C2: Core Mathematics 2
Unit description Algebra and functions; coordinate geometry in the
(x, y) plane; sequences and series; trigonometry;
exponentials and logarithms; differentiation;
Assessment information
Examination The examination will consist of one 1½ hour paper. It
will contain about nine questions of varying length.
The mark allocations per question will be stated on the
paper. All questions should be attempted.
Calculators Candidates are expected to have available a calculator
with at least the following keys: +, , , , , x , x, x ,
xy, ln x, ex, x!, sine, cosine and tangent and their
inverses in degrees and decimals of a degree, and in
radians; memory. Calculators with a facility for
symbolic algebra, differentiation and/or integration are
not permitted.
1. Algebra and functions
Simple algebraic division; Only division by (x + a) or (x ­ a) will be required.
use of the Factor Theorem
and the Remainder Theorem. Candidates should know that if
f(x) = 0 when x = a, then (x ­ a) is a factor of f(x).
Candidates may be required to factorise
cubic expressions such as
x3 + 3x2 ­ 4 and 6x3 + 11x2 ­ x ­ 6.
Candidates should be familiar with the terms `quotient'
and `remainder' and be able to determine the remainder
when the polynomial f(x) is divided by (ax + b).
