Our online study guide

Pure maths 2 workbookOur online study guide for Pure Mathematics 2 will lead you step-by-step through the curriculum, helping you to master the concepts and skills required for the course.

We understand the needs of private candidates and homeschoolers, and have planned the course to cater for students who do not have access to an expert in maths. Key features of the course include:

  • The curriculum is divided into manageable lessons which enable you to plan an effective study programme.
  • Face-to-face videos - where you actually see your teacher - explain the concepts involved in each lesson. This allows you to repeat any explanation as often as you wish, until you grasp the concept being explained.
  • Key definitions, formulae and procedures are highlighted so that you know exactly what the core concepts are.
  • Exercises have been carefully selected from the text book so that you can build up your skills from the simple application of isolated concepts to the combined application of a number of skills in solving a complex problem.
  • Detailed worked solutions are provided for all the prescribed exercises, so that you are able to correct your work, evaluate your progress, and identify concepts and skills that still require more work. (This in itself is an extremely valuable tool, and one which is not easy to obtain anywhere.)
  • Errors in the text book's answers are identified where necessary.

Our Pure Maths 2 course is based on the text book Pure Mathematics 2: Coursebook by Hugh Neill, Douglas Quadling and Julian Gilbey, revised edition (Cambridge University Press, 2016, ISBN 9781316600221). This book is endorsed by Cambridge International and includes a large number of exercises that will lead the student to the level of skill required by the Cambridge International curriculum.

Please look at our free lessons (indicated by * in the table of contents) to get an idea of how our study guide works.

Worked solutions

Included in our course are worked solutions for the coursebook by Neill, Quadling and Gilbey. The worked solutions should be regarded as an integral part of the course, and offer a number of important benefits:

  • The solutions are neatly typeset for easy reading.
  • All chapters are combined into one pdf document with bookmarks to each chapter and exercise.
  • Colour graphs and diagrams are included where helpful.
  • The solutions enable you to correct your work and thus to evaluate your own progress. (Please take note of these comments in our "Preliminaries" article; they explain how to evaluate your progress when marking your work.)
  • They provide a model for how to approach mathematical problems in general, and the P2 questions in particular.
  • They show you how to set out your answers.
  • They offer comments providing insight into the mathematical concepts and thought-patterns that are addressed in the exercises.
  • They provide corrections where the answers printed in the text book are incorrect. (There are not all that many errors in the text book, though.)

Note that the worked solutions do not cover all of the exercises in the text book, but they do cover all the exercises prescribed for this course.
