So I’m normally pretty good with math and tend to understand things in math but I’m not doing well in calculus and so I don’t know what to do. There is just so much to learn and remember and I get confused with what the questions are asking me!

Hi @Sophie17003 Calculus may be confusing at first. It is a good idea to start from more basic questions to develop your confidence and understanding of the main concepts. Look at practice assessments or past papers and do only “Achieved” questions, they are usually the first ones, parts (a) or (b).

You need to learn how to apply differentiation and anti-differentiation techniques to polynomial functions, and recognize questions where you asked to do so, for example, “find the gradient of the function”. You also need to become familiar with the graphs of functions and their gradient functions and describe the relationship between these graphs.

If you post some specific questions we may be able to assist you better.
