Edexcel Further Mathematics Pure 2 (FP2) Introduction Prerequisites A knowledge of the specifications for C1, C2, C3, C4 and FP1, their prerequisites, preambles and associated formulae is assumed and may be tested. Examination The examination will consist of one 1½ hour paper. It will contain about eight questions with varying mark allocations per question which will be stated on the paper. All questions may be attempted. Calculators Students are expected to have available a calculator with at least the following keys: +, −, ×, ÷, π, √x, ln 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. Contents Chapter 1 - Inequalities Uses ideas of inequalities from C1. Chapter 2 - Series Partial fractions knowledge is required from C4. Uses standard results from FP1. Chapter 3 – Further Complex Numbers Trigonometry and coordinate geometry knowledge required from C2. Uses ideas from complex numbers in FP1. Chapter 4 and 5 – First and Second Order Differential Equations Uses ideas from differential equations and integration from C4. Chapter 6 – Maclaurin and Taylor Series Differentiation knowledge is required from C3 and C4. Chapter 7 – Polar Coordinates Knowledge of finding the equation of a tangent to a curve from C1. Cartesian equations and radian knowledge required from C2. Tuesday Week A Friday Week B Theory lesson: Practical Lesson: Going through topics and showing examples of questions. Practicing questions from the book, exam questions and familiarisation of the markscheme. Explain the practical link behind the topics Lesson Layout HOMEWORK Homework will either be set in class or via email. Homework will consist of exam questions to improve exam practice.
