#### This course covers everything in the mechanics component of maths A-Level 2nd year content, and builds on the content covered in my first year course **A-Level Maths: Mechanics (Year 1 / AS)**. The course is suitable for all major exam boards, including Edexcel, OCR, AQA and MEI.

#### Please view the sample lessons in the first section of the course below.

#### Requirements

- A good knowledge of AS-level mechanics or equivalent.
- A good scientific calculator (e.g. Casio classwiz fx-991EX or graphical calculator).

#### Description

**A-Level Maths: Mechanics (Year 2) is a course for anyone studying A-Level Maths:**

This course covers everything in the mechanics component of maths A-Level 2nd year content, and builds on the content covered in my first year course **A-Level Maths: Mechanics (Year 1 / AS)**. The course is suitable for all major exam boards, including Edexcel, OCR, AQA and MEI. It is also a great intermediate course for anyone interested in developing their understanding of the subject.

The main sections of the course are:

- Moments – we will learn how to calculate the moment of a force, and use this in a broad range of scenarios, including modelling ladders leaning against walls, rods on supports and hanging from ropes, and more.
- Kinematics – we will learn how to model a projectile flying through the air, look at how to use calculus to explore variable acceleration in one and two dimensions, and use vectors to model the motion of objects in two dimensions.
- Dynamics – we will learn how to work with friction, and see how this influences the motion of objects on rough surfaces, including inclined planes. We will also look at more complex systems, such as connected particles, building on the previous year’s work on Newton’s second law of motion.

**What you get in this course:**

**Videos**: Watch as I explain each topic, introducing all the key ideas, and then go through a range of different examples, covering all the important ideas in each. In these videos I also point out the most common misconceptions and errors so that you can avoid them.

**Quizzes**: Each sub-section is followed by a short quiz for you to test your understanding of the content just covered. Most of the questions in the quizzes are taken from real A-Level past papers. Feel free to ask for help if you get stuck on these!

**Worksheets**: At the end of each chapter I have made a collection of different questions taken from real A-Level past papers for you to put it all together and try for yourself. At the bottom of each worksheet is a full mark-scheme so you can see how you have done.

*I really hope you enjoy this course!*
