## Prime Factors

You can use a prime factor tree to write a number as the product of its prime factors.

You can use a venn diagram of prime factors to work out the HCF and LCM of two numbers.

The prime factor decomposition is when a number is written out as a product of its prime factors. It's usually written in index form.

## Unit2

UNIT TWO REVISION

- Identities
- Equations
- Expressions
- Sequences
- Double Brackets
- Quadratic Expressions
- Formulae

## Identities

When two sides of a relation are equal for all values of it is called an identity.

An Identity has an equals sign and is true for all values of

## Equations

An equation is only true for certain values of

To solve an equation involving fractions, multiply each term on each side by the LCM of the denominators.

An equation has an equals sign, terms in one letter and numbers that you can solve to find the value of the letter.

## Expressions

Contains letters and number terms but doesn't have an equals sign.

You can simplify expressions if necessary.

## Quadratic Expressions

A quadratic expression has a squared term (and no higher power)

## Formulae

A formula has an equals sign and letters to represent different quantities.

The letters are variables as the quantities can vary.

## Sequences

In an arithmetic sequence, the terms increase or decrease by a fixed number called the common difference.

In a fibonacci - like sequence, the next number is found by adding the previous two numbers together.

In a geometric sequence, the terms increase or decrease by a constant multiplier.

A quadractic sequence has and no higher power of in its nth term.

## Unit3

UNIT THREE REVISION

- Stem and Leaf diagrams
- Frequency Polygons
- Modal class intervals
- Scatter Graphs
- Line of best fit
- Time Series

## Stem and Leaf Diagrams

A back to back stem and leaf diagram compares two sets of results. On the left hand side the numbers are read as backwards.

## Frequency polygons

A Frequency polygon is a graph made by joining the midpoints of the tops of a bar chart with straight lines.

A quicker way to draw frequency polygons is to plot the frequency against midpoints of each group.

## Modal Class Intervals

The modal class (or modal group) has the highest frequency.

To estimate a mean from a grouped frequency table, add together the products of class midpoints and their frequencies and divide by the total frequency.

If the total frequency in a grouped freqency table is , then the median lies in the group containing the th item of data.

## Scatter Graphs

Bivariate data is data that has two variables. Points can be placed in a scatter graph to see if there is a correlation between them.

Positive correlation - When points lie close to an upwards facing line

Negative correlation - When points lie close to a downwards facing line.

No correlation - Points create no discernable line.

## Line Of Best Fit

A line of best fit is the line that passes as close as possible to the points on a scatter graph.

Using a line of best fit to predict data values within the range of data is called interpolation and is usually reasonably accurate.

Using a line of best fit to predict data values outside the range of data is called extrapolation and may not be accurate.

Individual points which are outside the overall pattern of a scatter graph are called outliers. They can be removed from a data set provided a reason for their removal is given.

## Time Series

A time series graph is a time graph with time plotted on the horizontal axis.

## Unit4

UNIT FOUR REVISION

- Mixed Numbers
- Reciprocals
- Unit Ratios
- Direct Proportion
- Interest
- VAT

## Mixed Numbers

It is often easier to write mixed numbers as improper fractions before doing a calculation

1 3/4 + 2 3/8

7/4 + 19/8 = 418

## Reciprocals

The reciprocal of the number is .

To find the reciprocal of a fraction, swap the numerator with the denominator.

To find the reciprocal of a mixed number, first convert it into an improper fraction.

## Unit Ratios

You can compare ratios by writing them as unit ratios. In a unit ratio, one of the numbers is 1. The other number may or may not be a whole number.

To share a quantity in a given ratio you could work out what fraction of the total amount each person recieves and then multiply that fraction by the total amount.

## Proportion

When two quantities are in direct proportion, as one is multiplied by a number , so is the other. Their ratio also stays the same as they increase or decrease.

## Interest

Simple Interest is the interest calculated only on the original amount invested. It is the same each year.

You can calculate a percentage change using the formula:

You can use inverse operations to calculate the original amount after a percentage increase or decrease.

## VAT

VAT - Value Added Tax

VAT is charged at 20% on most goods and services.

Domestic fuel bills have a lower VAT rate of 5%

On some things, VAT is not charged

## Recurring Decimals

All recurring decimals can be written as exact fractions.

If 1 decimal place recurrs, multiply by 10.

If 2 decimal places recurr, multiply by 100.

If 3 decimal places recurr, multiply by 1000.

## Interior Angles

The interior angles of a polygon are those angles at each vertex that are on the inside of the polygon. There is one per vertex.

For a regular polygon, by definition, all the interior angles are the same.

## Exterior Angles

The Exterior Angle is the angle between any side of a shape, and a line extended from the next side. ... When we add up the Interior Angle and Exterior Angle we get a straight line 180°. They are "Supplementary Angles".

## Angles on a Straight Line

The angles on a straight line add up to 180 degrees.

## Pythagorus' Thereom

Pythagorus' Thereom states that in a right angled triangle, the square of the hypoteneuse is equal to the sum of the squares of the opposite and adjacent sides.

## SOHCAHTOA

Sine = Opposite / Hypotenuse

Cosine = Adjacent / Hypotenuse

Tangent = Opposite / Adjacent

UNIT SIX REVISION

- Linear Equations
- Distance -Time Graphs
- Velocity - Time Graphs
- Reciprocal Functions

## Linear Equations

A linear equation is any equation involving one or two variables whose exponents are one. ex. = 4 is not a linear equation.

The equation for a straight-line graph can be written as:

A linear function has a graph that is a straight line.

## Distance -Time Graphs

If an object moves along a straight line, the distance travelled can be represented by a distance-time graph. In a distance-time graph, the gradient of the line is equal to the speed of the object. The greater the gradient (and the steeper the line) the faster the object is moving.

## Velocity - Time Graphs

** If an object moves along a straight line, the distance travelled can be represented by a distance-time graph. In a distance-time graph, the gradient of the line is equal to the speed of the object. The greater the gradient (and the steeper the line) the faster the object is moving.**

## Reciprocal Functions

The graphs of reciprocal functions are made up of branches, which are the two main parts of the graph; and asymptotes, which are horizontal and vertical lines that the graph approaches but doesn't touch.

## Cubic Functions

In mathematics, a cubic function is a function of the form where the coefficients a, b, c, and d are real numbers, and the variable x takes real values, and a ≠ 0. In other words, it is both a polynomial function of degree three, and a real function.

## Unit7

UNIT SEVEN REVISION

- Area of Parallelogram = Base × Height
- Area of Trapezoid = ½(Base
_{1}+ Base_{2}) × Height - Area of Circle = π(radius)

## Error Intervals

An error interval is the range of values that a number could have taken before being rounded or truncated. Error intervals are usually written as a range using inequalities, with a lower bound and an upper bound.

## Volumes

## Capacity

The amount that something can hold. Usually it means volume, such as milliliters (ml) or liters (l) in Metric, or pints or gallons in Imperial.

## Surface Areas

## Area of a Circle

In geometry, the area enclosed by a circle of radius r is π r². Here the Greek letter π represents a constant, approximately equal to 3.14159, which is equal to the ratio of the circumference of any circle to its diameter.

## Unit8

UNIT EIGHT REVISION

- Plans and Elevations
- Transformations
- Bearings
- Bisectors

## Plans and Elevations

## Transformations

## Transformations

There are four main types of transformations: translation, rotation, reflection and dilation. These transformations fall into two categories: rigid transformations that do not change the shape or size of the preimage and non-rigid transformations that change the size but not the shape of the preimage.

## Bearings

A bearing measures the movement of an angle in a clockwise direction and always on the north line. The bearing of a point is the line joining the centre of the compass through the point measured in degrees in a clockwise way from the north direction.

## Bisectors

A bisector is something that cuts an object into two equal parts. It is applied to angles and line segments. In verb form, we say that it bisects the other object.

UNIT NINE REVISION

- Solving Quadratics
- Perfect Squares
- Completing The Square
- Simultaneous Equations
- Inequalities
- Set Notation

## Solving Quadratics

To solve a quadratic equation by factoring,

- Put all terms on one side of the equal sign, leaving zero on the other side.
- Factor.
- Set each factor equal to zero.
- Solve each of these equations.
- Check by inserting your answer in the original equation.

## Perfect Squares

In mathematics, a square number or perfect square is an integer that is the square of an integer; in other words, it is the product of some integer with itself. For example, 9 is a square number, since it can be written as 3 × 3. ... Square numbers are non-negative.

## Completing the Square

Completing the Square is a method used to solve a quadratic equation by changing the form of the equation so that the left side is a perfect square trinomial .

## Simultaneous Equations

In mathematics, a set of simultaneous equations is a finite set of equations for which common solutions are sought.

- Step 1: Multiply each equation by a suitable number so that the two equations have the same leading coefficient. ...
- Step 2: Subtract the second equation from the first.
- Step 3: Solve this new equation for y.
- Step 4: Substitute y = 2 into either Equation 1 or Equation 2 above and solve for x.

## Inequalities

In mathematics, an inequality is a relation which makes a non-equal comparison between two numbers or other mathematical expressions. It is used most often to compare two numbers on the number line by their size.

## Set Notations

Set notation is used to help define the elements of a set. The symbols shown in this lesson are very appropriate in the realm of mathematics and in mathematical logic. When done properly, a set described in words or in symbols will clearly show all the elements of that set.

## Unit10

UNIT TEN REVISION

- Sample Space Diagrams
- Tree Diagrams
- Conditional Probability

## Sample space diagrams

In probability theory, the sample space of an experiment or random trial is the set of all possible outcomes or results of that experiment. A sample space is usually denoted using set notation, and the possible ordered outcomes are listed as elements in the set.

## Tree Diagrams

In probability theory, a tree diagram may be used to represent a probability space. Tree diagrams may represent a series of independent events or conditional probabilities. Each node on the diagram represents an event and is associated with the probability of that event.

## Conditional Probability

Conditional probability is the probability of one event occurring with some relationship to one or more other events. For example: Event A is that it is raining outside, and it has a 0.3 (30%) chance of raining today. Event B is that you will need to go outside, and that has a probability of 0.5 (50%).

## Unit11

UNIT ELEVEN REVISION

- Compound Interest
- Compound Measures
- Density

## Compound Interest

Compound interest is the addition of interest to the principal sum of a loan or deposit, or in other words, interest on interest. It is the result of reinvesting interest, rather than paying it out, so that interest in the next period is then earned on the principal sum plus previously accumulated interest.

## Compound Measures

**Compound Measures**

A Compound measurement is a measurement that uses more than one quantity.

Examples include density measurements, speed measurements and rates of pay.

**Density**

Density is calculated by mass ÷ volume. So density is therefore written as mass per volume.

The most common units used to measure density are kg/m^{3}

The density of pure water is always 1000kgm-^{3}. So anything with a lower density will float in water.

**Speed**

Speed is measured using the formula distance ÷ time. So this will therefore be written as distance per time.

## Density

Density is a measure of mass per volume. The average density of an object equals its total mass divided by its total volume. An object made from a comparatively dense material (such as iron) will have less volume than an object of equal mass made from some less dense substance (such as water).

## Unit12

UNIT TWELVE REVISION

- Congruency
- Enlargement

## Congruency

ASA

AAS

RHS

## Enlargement

Transformations change the size or position of shapes. Congruent shapes are identical, but may be reflected, rotated or translated. Scale factors can increase or decrease the size of a shape.

## Sine Rule

In trigonometry, the law of sines, sine law, sine formula, or sine rule is an equation relating the lengths of the sides of a triangle to the sines of its angles.

## Cosine Rule

In trigonometry, the law of cosines relates the lengths of the sides of a triangle to the cosine of one of its angles.

The law of cosines states where γ denotes the angle contained between sides of lengths a and b and opposite the side of length c.

## Unit14

UNIT FOURTEEN REVISION

- Sample Sizes
- Stratified Samples
- Cumulative Frequency
- Box Plot
- Histograms

## Sample Sizes

Sample size measures the number of individual samples measured or observations used in a survey or experiment. For example, if you test 100 samples of soil for evidence of acid rain, your sample size is 100. If an online survey returned 30,500 completed questionnaires, your sample size is 30,500.

## Stratified Samples

Stratified sampling refers to a type of sampling method . With stratified sampling, the researcher divides the population into separate groups, called strata. Then, a probability sample (often a simple random sample ) is drawn from each group.

## Cumulative Frequency

Cumulative frequency analysis is the analysis of the frequency of occurrence of values of a phenomenon less than a reference value. The phenomenon may be time- or space-dependent. Cumulative frequency is also called frequency of non-exceedance.

## Box Plots

In descriptive statistics, a box plot or boxplot is a method for graphically depicting groups of numerical data through their quartiles.

## Histograms

A histogram is an accurate representation of the distribution of numerical data. It is an estimate of the probability distribution of a continuous variable.

It differs from a bar graph, in the sense that a bar graph relates two variables, but a histogram relates only one.

UNIT SEVENTEEN REVISION

- Subject of a formula
- Functions
- Inverse Functions
- Algebraic Proof

## Subject of a Formula

- Make x the subject of the formula:
- 4y + 2 = x - 4.
- x = 4y + 6.
- Make y the subject of the formula.
- 2y/5 - 3x = 2.
- TIP: Remember to put brackets around 2 + 3x because both the 2 and the 3x are being multiplied by 5.
- y = 5 + 15x/2.
- - All it means is get a letter on one side of the equation on its own.

## Functions

In mathematics, a function is a relation between sets that associates to every element of a first set exactly one element of the second set. Typical examples are functions from integers to integers or from the real numbers to real numbers.

It is commonly written as either f(x) or g(x) or both.

## Inverse Functions

In mathematics, an inverse function (or anti-function) is a function that "reverses" another function: if the function f applied to an input x gives a result of y, then applying its inverse function g to y gives the result x, and vice versa, i.e., f(x) = y if and only if g(y) = x.

## Algebraic Proof

An algebraic proof shows the logical arguments behind an algebraic solution. You are given a problem to solve, and sometimes its solution. If you are given the problem and its solution, then your job is to prove that the solution is right.

Use n to represent any integer.

2n=even

n-1 or 2n-1=odd

## Unit18

UNIT EIGHTEEN REVISION

- Vectors
- Magnitude
- Displacement

## Vectors

A vector is an object that has both a magnitude and a direction. Geometrically, we can picture a vector as a directed line segment, whose length is the magnitude of the vector and with an arrow indicating the direction. The direction of the vector is from its tail to its head.

## Magnitude

The magnitude of a vector →PQ is the distance between the initial point P and the end point Q . In symbols the magnitude of →PQ is written as | →PQ | . If the coordinates of the initial point and the end point of a vector is given, the Distance Formula can be used to find its magnitude.

## Displacement

A displacement is a vector whose length is the shortest distance from the initial to the final position of a point P. It quantifies both the distance and direction of an imaginary motion along a straight line from the initial position to the final position of the point.

## Unit19

UNIT NINETEEN REVISION

- Direct Proportion
- Inverse Proportion
- Exponential Functions

## Direct Proportion

With direct proportion, the two variables change at the same rate. Direct Proportion. With direct proportion, the two variable change at the same time. In direct proportion, as the first variable increases (decreases), the second variable also increases (decreases).

## Indirect Proportion

An inverse variation occurs if one of the variables increases or decreases and the other variable decreases or increases. It can be read as “varies inversely” and “inverse proportion”. Inverse variation exists if the relationship exists between the two variables whose product is constant (k).

## Exponential Functions

In mathematics, an exponential function is a function of the form. where b is a positive real number, and in which the argument x occurs as an exponent. For real numbers c and d, a function of the form is also an exponential function, as it can be rewritten as.
