1 Stage 1 Higher Revision Sheet This document attempts to sum up the contents of the Higher Tier Stage 1 Module. There are two exams, each 25 minutes long. One allows use of a calculator and the other doesn t. Together they represent 15% of the GCSE. Before you go into the exam make sure you are fully equipped with two pens, two pencils, a calculator, a ruler, a protractor and a pair of compasses. Also be sure not to panic; it is not uncommon to get stuck on a question (I ve been there!). Just continue with what you can do and return at the end to the question(s) you have found hard. If you have time check all your work, especially the first question you attempted... always an area prone to error. I am always available on to answer any questions you may have. Please do not hesitate. J M S Standard Form, Powers, Fractions & Decimals The factors of an integer (whole number) are the integers which divide into it without remainder. For example the factors of 8 are 1, 2, 4, 8. If a number has exactly two distinct factors (itself and one) then it is prime. The first few prime numbers are therefore 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17,... Note that one is not prime! You must be able to write any integer (whole number) as a product of its prime factors. For example 630 = The highest common factor (HCF) of two (or more) numbers is the largest number that divides into them all. The lowest common multiple (LCM) of two (or more) numbers is the smallest number into which they all divide. To find the HCF or LCM of two (or more numbers) we write the numbers out in their prime factor form (written in full with 3 2 written as 3 3 etc.). The HCF is the product of the numbers (counted once only, each) of numbers common to all of them. To find the LCM we write out one of the numbers and then multiply in the components we have not already dealt with from the other numbers. For example find the HCF and LCM of 1260, 924 and First we write in prime factor form thus: 1260 = = = So HCF = = 28 and LCM = ( ) (11) (2 7) = All numbers (both very big and very small) can be written in standard form. A number in standard form is always a number between one and ten, times ten to a power (i.e. A 10 n ). Here are a few examples... make sure you can convert either way! The power is found by how many times you move the decimal place and in which direction. 1 J.M.Stone

2 Ordinary form Standard form On your calculator the sum ( ) + ( ) can be entered as (3.2 exp 6) + (4.6 exp 5) and you should find the answer is which is in standard form. Notation: 0. 3 = and = To convert recurring decimals to fractions we follow this procedure: x = place equal to x, 100x = x = x = x = = leave only pure recurring section, move decimal place to leave same recurring bit, subtract to eliminate recurring bit, divide and simplify. Your fraction work and estimating should be fine. Read the appropriate section on pages 4 6. Remember when dealing with mixed fractions like it is usually easiest to convert to top-heavy fractions 14 3 before performing any calculations and then convert back at the end. Percentages & Ratios All percentage questions are most easily solved by making a table of percentage and amount and then cross multiplying and solving for the unknown. For example, I bought a car 3 years ago and it has since lost 41% of its value. It is now valued at What was its original value? So 59x = , therefore x = Amount Percentage x Compound interest is most easily summed up by the formula A = P (1 + r 100 )n, where P is the original amount invested, A is the total amount including new interest, r is the interest rate and n is the number of years invested. For example, I invested an amount of money 7 years ago at 4.5% compound interest and there is now in my account. How much did I invest? Put the numbers into the formula and solve; = P so P = = Ratios are usually canceled down to their lowest form in integers. For example 5 : 15 : 20 goes to 1 : 3 : 4 and 2 : 1 3 goes to 6 : 1. In question where they say 3 : 4 = x : 16 it is usually pretty obvious to see what to do. In this case x = 12 because the right hand is four times the left hand. 2 J.M.Stone

3 When dividing quantities in a ratio you sum the components of the ratio and divide into the quantity. You then multiply the original ratio by this number. For example divide 154 in the ratio 3 : 4 : = = 14 (3 14) : (4 14) : (4 14) = 42 : 56 : The other way questions can be posed are when you are told that the ratio of men : women : children at a school play is 2 : 4 : 7 and that there are 84 children then we can easily see that 24 : 48 : 84, so there are 156 people in total at the play. (They key is spotting that 7 12 = 84. i.e. you need to find the number that multiplies 7 to make 84 and multiply the whole ratio by that number.) Two quantities are in direct proportion if when one doubles, the other doubles. When one triples, the other triples etc. For example, if told that x and y are in direct proportion and that x = 3 when y = 5, what is x when y = 6? We multiply 5 by 6 5 to make 6, so x = = 3.6. Two quantities are in inverse proportion if when one doubles the other halves. (One goes up, the other comes down!) So whatever I times one variable by from one state to the other I must divide the other. Equations With simple equations we must get the x s to one side and the numbers to the other. We must do this by doing the same thing to both sides. For example: 2x + 15 = 5x 3 15 = 3x 3 subtracting 2x, 18 = 3x adding 3, x = 6 dividing by 3. When equations have denominators (e.g. q+3 5 2q 3 4 = q ) we can get rid of them by multiplying by the entire equation by the LCM of the denominators. So in this example there are 4 terms in the equation so I must make sure I multiply all 4 of them by 20. The denominators will then all cancel with what you are multiplying by. q + 3 2q 3 = q (q + 3) (2q 3) (q + 1) = (q + 3) 5(2q 3) = 10(q + 1) q q + 15 = 10q q = 23 q = When equations have the unknown in the denominator we must multiply by the denominator. For example 20 2x + 1 = 4 (2x + 1) 20 = 4 (2x + 1) 2x = 8x + 4 x = J.M.Stone

4 With quadratic equations we use the same technique as with other simpler equations; i.e. get the x 2 or the (... ) 2 to one side and the numbers to the other and then remember to take the positive and negative square roots. For example 4(x + 5) = 69 4(x + 5) 2 = 64 (x + 5) 2 = 16 x + 5 = ±4 x = 1 or x = 9. If you end up being left with x 2 = to get x = ± 16 = ± 7 4 = ± then take the square root of the top and the bottom Trial and improvement is covered on a separate handout. The only important point to make is that if you want to find a solution to 2dp (say) then you sandwich the answer between (say) x = 3.45 and x = 3.46 then you must test x = and interpret the result to give either x = 3.45 (to 2dp) or x = 3.46 (to 2dp). Basic Algebra & Powers To factorise an expression you must pull out the HCF of any coefficients and the lowest powers of any common variables. For example 6x 3 yz 10x 2 z = 2x 2 z(3xy 5). Be careful of ones like 6x 2 + 3x = 3x(2x + 1); notice the one at the end. You can always check your answers in any factorisation questions by just multiplying back out. You must be able to simplify expressions by multiplying out and collecting like terms. For example 3(2x 4) (3x 4) 3(3x + 2) = 6x 12 3x + 4 9x 6 = 6x 17. Appreciate that x 4 = x x x x and x 3 = 1 x 3 = 1 x x x. Also x0 is 1 for all x 0. Three important index laws are 1. a x a y = a x+y, 2. a x a y = a x y, 3. (a x ) y = a xy. They can be used to simplify expressions like (2x) 2 4x 2 y 2 8x 3 y 3 = 16x4 y 2 8x 3 y 3 = 2x y and 4x 2 y + 2x 3 y 2 2xy = 4x2 y 2xy + 2x3 y 2 2xy = 2x + x2 y. Recognise the difference between equations, formulae, identities and expressions. An equation has only one variable and is correct for only one value of that variable. An identity is true for all values that the variable can take. A formula is an equation with more than one variable. An expression is a collection of terms with no = sign. Below is a table of examples: Equations Identities Formulae Expressions 2x + 3 = 10 2(x + 3) = 2x + 6 E = mc 2 mx + c 1 2x + 4 = 3x 2 x + y = y + x F = ma 2 mv2 2(x + 4) = 3x 10 (x + 2) 2 = x 2 + 4x + 4 y = mx + c 2a + 4b You must be able to calculate values from a formula given values. For example, given E = 1 2 mv2, calculate E when m = 2 and v = 5. So E = 1 2 m v v = ( 5) ( 5) = 1 25 = J.M.Stone

5 Sequences & Formulae When given a sequence of numbers it is often useful to look at the difference between terms to find a pattern. For example given the triangular numbers we can see the difference has a readily identifiable pattern. Numbers Difference We can use this pattern to work out the next few terms. When there is a constant difference between the terms then the n th term (T n ) is given by So for example T n = (diff. between terms)n + (zeroth term). 5, 8, 11, 14, = T n = 3n + 2, 5, 1, 3, 7, = T n = 4n + 9, 3, 1, 1, 3, 5... = T n = 2n 5. Example 1 ; In the sequence 4, 1, 6, 11,... what is the two hundredth term? Well the formula is clearly T n = 5n 9 so the two hundredth term is T 200 = = 991. Example 2 ; In the sequence T n = 3n 7 one of the terms is 284. Which term is it? Just solve 284 = 3n = 3n 97 = n. So 284 is the 97 th term. You must be good at questions like either of these examples. You need to be able to change the subject of an equation. This we do by isolating the desired letter. For example make x the subject in z = x+y x y : z = x + y x y z(x y) = x + y zx x = y + zy x = y + zy z 1. Formulae can be manipulated to make them more useful. Given that y = ax + c and x = 2a + c we can write y in terms of a and c by substituting in: y = a(2a + c) + c = 2a 2 + ac + c. Linear & Quadratic Graphs To draw a straight line graph from an equation we can draw a table of x and y. For example draw the line y = 2x 4 we fill in the table x y We would then plot the points (0, 4), (2, 8) and ( 3, 2) and join them up with a ruler to find the line. A faster way is to look at the line in the form y = mx + c where m is the gradient and c is the y-axis intercept. So the line y = 4x 2 has intercept 2 and gradient 4. So it goes through the point (0, 2). From this we go across one to the right and up four to find our next point (and so on). 5 J.M.Stone

6 If the line is not given to you with y as the subject then you could make it the subject. For example 4x + 3y = 6 y = 6 4x. 3 Then do the xy table as above. However you could also just look at the equation 4x+3y = 6 let x = 0 to discover y = 2 and then let y = 0 to discover x = Therefore the line must go through (0, 2) and (1 1 2, 0) so we can draw the line. Know how to read from conversion graphs and real world graphs (see pages 55 & 56). Know that on distance time graphs you are often asked for speeds (=dist/time). To graph quadratic functions you need to draw a detailed table, devoting a column for each section of the equation. For example to draw y = 2x 2 2x 4 make the following table: x 2x 2 2x 4 y And then plot the points ( 3, 20), ( 2, 8),..., (3, 8) and join with a smooth curve. You should find that it is a -shaped curve crossing the x-axis at 1 and 2. If the number of x 2 s is positive (e.g. y = 2x ) then the graph will be -shaped and if the number of x 2 s is negative (e.g. y = 3x ) then the graph will be -shaped. Pythagoras & Circle Properties Pythagoras Theorems states that in a right angled triangle with sides a, b and c where c is the hypotenuse (longest length; always opposite the right angle) then a 2 + b 2 = c 2. In other words the short one squared plus the short one squared equals the long one squared. You will always know two of the sides and not know the other. Assign a letter to the unknown side and then write down an equation for the triangle. Solve for the unknown and don t forget to square root at the end! For example you might get x = 9 2 x 2 = x = 56. Pythagoras can be used to work out the length between two points in the xy-plane. For example calculate the length between ( 3, 5) and (2, 6) is = 26. Learn the properties of circles on page 60. The area of a circle is given by A = πr 2. Make sure you are using the radius in this formula and not the diameter. The circumference of a circle is given by C = 2πr (or, if you like, C = πd). The tangent to a circle and the radius at that point are always at right angles. Tangents drawn from a point to both sides of a circle are equal in length. The implies that there will exist a kite with two right angles in it. Cut it in two to form a right angled triangle. 6 J.M.Stone

7 Trigonometry In trigonometry you will always be referring to right angled triangles. (If there isn t one then you will need to construct one somehow.) There will always be two sides and one angle that you are interested in. You will know two and you will need to work out the third. Assign the unknown length or angle a letter (usually a for angle and x for length). All you need to remember is SohCahToa, which is a way of remembering that sin a = opposite hypotenuse cos a = adjacent hypotenuse tan a = opposite adjacent. The hypotenuse is fixed, and the adjacent and opposite lengths are relative to the angle you are interested in. Then write down the equation and solve for the unknown (it will always be sin, cos or tan of an angle equals a length over a length). Here are three initial equations and their solutions; make sure you can do all of them. sin a = 4 5 a = sin 1 ( 4 5 ) cos 40 = x tan 70 = 15 3 x x = 3 cos 40 x = 15 tan 70 a = 53.1 (3sf) x = 2.30 (3sf) x = 5.46 (3sf) The rule of thumb is that when the angle is unknown you will need to use the inverse function. For example if tan a = 3 7 then a = ( ) tan Bearings are always given with three digits (e.g. 004 ) and are measured clockwise from north. Make sure you read the question very carefully and draw in as many north lines as possible. These are all parallel so you can use your parallel line angle facts to help solve problems. Transformations In any transformation in this section the object is the original shape and the image is the object after transformation. A translation is a sliding movement in the xy-plane without rotation, reflection or enlargement. It is usually described by a column vector of the form ( ) movement right movement up. So the vector ( 4 3) is a translation 4 right and 3 down. To translate an object by a given column vector (e.g. ( ) 3 5 ) it is best to consider one point on the shape and move it by the vector (3 left and 5 up in this case) and then redraw the rest of the shape from that point. If you are given two shapes and it has been translated, then to describe the translation we consider the same point on both shapes and see how it has moved. We then say that the transformation is a translation and state the column vector. Rotations. Three things define a rotation; The centre of rotation. That is the point about which your shape is rotated. The direction of rotation. Either clockwise or anti-clockwise. The size of the angle through which the shape is rotated. For example 45, 90, J.M.Stone

8 Reflections. To reflect a shape in a line we must make sure that for each point on the object we go to the line at right angles and then go the same distance again to find the equivalent point on the image. An enlargement changes the size (but not the shape) of an object. The image of an enlargement is said to be similar to the object. The scale factor describes how many times larger the shape has become. For example if the scale factor is three then all the lengths on the object are three times longer in the image. There is also the centre of enlargement to consider. If you are given two similar shapes and asked to find the centre of the enlargement then you just ray trace from common points on object and image. Where these lines cross is the centre of enlargement. You must also know how to enlarge a shape with a given scale factor and centre. You take a single point on the image and work out the column vector from the centre to the point (e.g. ( 2 3) ). You then multiply the vector by the scale factor (e.g. for a scale factor of two; 2 ( ( 2 3) = 4 ( 6) ). The image point will then be 4 6) from the centre. Given that the scale factor is two, you then redraw the whole shape from that point but with all lengths twice as long. When asked to describe an enlargement you must include both the centre of enlargement and the scale factor (and also, of course, that it is an enlargement!). If there is a negative scale factor then the shape will also have been rotated and not have the same orientation, as it does with positive scale factors. In a scale drawing the scale is a ratio showing how real life relates to the scale drawing. For example 1 : tells us 1cm in the map is 25000cm on the ground. Therefore 1cm = 250m and 4cm = 1km. Mensuration You need to know the formulae for the areas of certain simple plane shapes. You may also be presented by compound shapes that are constructed by pasting together common shapes. They are summarised thus: Triangle A = 1 2bh h must be perpendicular height Parallelogram ( A = bh h must be perpendicular height Trapezium a+b ) 2 h h must be perpendicular height & a and b must be the parallel sides Circle A = πr 2 Don t confuse radius and diameter Volume and Surface Area 1 of cuboids are obvious; Volume = lbh S.A. = 2(lb + lh + hb). The volume of a prism is the (area of the extended face) (its length). It is almost always best to calculate the area of the face first (no matter how fiddly) and then multiply by the length. The surface area is then done on an ad hoc 2 basis. Be on the lookout for shapes where bits are taken away from some larger shape. For example Thin Book, Ex 10G, the tent question. The face is a 10 by 8 rectangle with two quarter circles removed. Therefore the area of the face is A = (10 8) 1 2 (π 42 ). 1 Surface Area will henceforth be referred to as S.A. 2 ad hoc = Fly by the seat of your pants. 8 J.M.Stone

9 Cylinders are prisms with circular cross section. Vol = πr 2 h and S.A. = 2πr 2 + 2πrh. In S.A. the 2πr 2 is the area of the circular top and bottom; the 2πrh is the area of the curved face. 3 When faced with a calculation in mensuration you must be careful about units. To calculate an area or volume you will need to convert all lengths to one consistent unit (e.g. mm, cm, m, km, etc.). You also need to be able to convert between units. The basic conversions you must know are: 1 kg 2.2 lb (pounds) 2.54 cm 1 inch 8 km 5 miles 4.5 litres 1 gallon 1 litre 1.75 pints 1 litre 1000 cm 3 30 cm 1 ft You must also know more complicated conversions; this is best illustrated by way of example. Convert 5.4 kg/cm 3 to lb/ft 3 (this is a very dense material!). We write 5.4 kg/cm 3 = 5.4 (1 kg) 5.4 (2.2 lb) (1 cm) 3 = ( 1 30 ft) 3 = ) 3 lb/ft 3 = 320, 760 lb/ft 3. ( 1 30 Handling Data I Scatter graphs can be used to see how two sets of data are related. If the points are almost in a line then there is a high degree of correlation between the variables. We would expect high correlation between people s times for the 100m sprint and 200m sprint (fat people are slow at both etc.) There is positive correlation if, as one variable increases, so does the other. There is negative correlation if, as one increases, the other decreases. You can usually draw the line of best fit. You can use this to estimate values from he graph. The line of best fit does not always go through the origin (0, 0). Given a frequency distribution you create a new column (the product of the first two; xf) and sum it to help you work out the mean. For example x f x f xf 0 1 Create Extra Column & Sum So the mean is x = xf f = 33/15. If you have grouped data (0 x < 5, 5 x < 10, etc.) then the best you can do is estimate the mean by using the mid-point (2.5, 7.5, etc.) and carry out the same process as above. The modal class will be the class with the highest frequency. 3 Curved Face = The bit where the sticker goes on a can of beans. 9 J.M.Stone

10 Find the median of a set of data. The median occurs at the ( n+1 2 )th data point. For example, median of 2, 3, 4 is 3, but the median of 1, 2, 3, 4 is 2.5 (the average of 2 & 3). For grouped data you can only state the class interval that contains the median (e.g. it lies in the class 15 x < 20). Read pages about time series and moving averages. The moving average will always be plotted on a new graph. Handling Data II The lower quartile is the piece of data one quarter of the way in to a set of data. The upper quartile is the piece of data three quarters of the way in. The interquartile range is defined as the upper quartile lower quartile. It is a measure of spread (how spread out the data is). The cumulative frequency is a running total of the frequencies as you go up the values. For example x f x (upper limit of) cum. freq 0 x < 5 8 Create x < Cumulative x < Frequency x < Plot the second of these tables and join it with a smooth curve to form the cumulative frequency curve. From this the median and the two quartiles can be found. Page 107. Once these values are found we can draw a box and whisker diagram. The box and whisker diagram uses five values: the minimum, the maximum, the lower quartile, the upper quartile and the median. It is good for showing spread and comparing two quantities. min. LQ med. UQ max. Histograms are usually drawn for continuous data in classes. If the classes have equal widths, then you merely plot amount against frequency. If the classes do not have equal widths then we need to create a new column for frequency density. Frequency density is defined by f.d. = frequency class width. However the f.d. may be scaled to make the numbers nicer. The relationship therefore becomes f.d. = α frequency class width where α is a scale factor that may need to be determined. Read The area of the bars are what represents the frequency, not the height. Know the difference between primary and secondary data. Primary data is collected through experiments, surveys, questionnaires etc. Secondary data is data extracted from published sources. If you have a piece of data that says a child weighs 1250 kg it s probably best to discard it. (Use common sense with unusual data.) 10 J.M.Stone
