Some of you asked what topics would be covered in Sec 2.

Using what we had in 2013 as a guide, below are the topics that would be included in 2014 (however, may not be in this sequence):

- Algebraic Fractions and Change of Subject
- This builds on what you learnt about solving equations - reorganising the terms
- Solving Quadratic Equations
- This is a small extension from factorisation. You would have to factorise the "expression" first
- Graphs of Quadratic Equation
- This extends on the plotting of linear graphs. Now, you need to put in more points in order to plot the graph.
__What you can try__? Use Grapher to plot the graphs to observe how they look like, and link it to the previous topic, "Solving Quadratic Equations"- Simultaneous Equations
- Solving two unknowns (at this level).
__What you can try__? Use Grapher to plot the graphs to observe how the two equations "behave" and "explore" how we can obtain the answers (or solutions) to the two equations visually.- Pythagoras' Theorem and Mensuration
- You have been introduced to Pythagoras' Theorem briefly when we did "Area and Perimeter" in Sec 1
- Congruence and Similarity
- Volume and Surface Area of Similar Figures
- Trigonometry
- This works with right-angled triangles. You would be introduced to "TAN" (tangent), "SIN" (sine) and "COS" (cosine) functions, and how these functions are related the right-angled triangles
- Number sequence
- This builds on the topic we did in Sec 1
- Mathematical Problem Solving
- Indices and Standard Form
- Relate this to the "Index Notation" and simple algebraic manipulation that were covered in Sec 1; you also came across this in Sec 1 Science
- Set Language and Notation
- Direct & Inverse Proportion
- We did this topic in Sec 1, and direct proportion was tested.
- Inverse Proportion is delivered as the end-of-year flipped lesson, to be followed up in Sec 2
- Kinematics
- Probability
- Percentages
- This topic has been delivered and tested in Sec 1

Apart from the above, you can also refer to the Sec 2 Textbook - do check your booklist.

You can also access to the materials in the AceLearning for a self-preview :)
