Questions which ask the student to intepret vector diagrams in order to write out the components in terms of base vectors. Also addition and subtraction of vectors and vector magnitude.

Describe (onecomponent) vectors in terms of base vectors, add and find magnitude Needs to be testedQuestion
This question introduces base vectors i and j and asks the student to interpret a JSXGraph diagram to write four vectors in terms of the base vectors. Further parts ask the student to add vectors and find a magnitude.

Question
This question asks the student to interpret a JSXGraph diagram to write three vectors in terms of the base vectors. Each vector has both a horizontal and vertical component. Further parts ask the student to add vectors and find a magnitude.

Question

Questions on adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing numbers in standard form.

Question
Add two numbers in standard form, then subtract two numbers in standard form.

Question
This question tests the student's ability to identify equivalent fractions through spotting a fraction which is not equivalent amongst a list of otherwise equivalent fractions. It also tests the students ability to convert mixed numbers into their equivalent improper fractions. It then does the reverse and tests their ability to convert an improper fraction into an equivalent mixed number.

Question
Identify wellknown fractional equivalents of decimals. Convert obscure decimals and recurring decimals into fractions.

Question
Convert a variety of numbers from decimal to standard index form.

Question
Given the first few terms of an arithmetic sequence, write down its formula, then find a couple of particular terms.

Question
This question aims to assess the student's understanding of the difference between biased and unbiased events and also to assess the student's understanding of the fact that the experimental probability tends towards the theoretical probability as the number of trials increases.

Question
