# SPM Mathematics Tips

Brief Introduction Mathematics (is also known as Modern Maths) and Additional Mathematics are categorized as thinking subjects which you take your time thinking rather than memorizing facts. The formula will be given at the front page of the examination paper. Additional Maths is notably 4 times harder than Modern Maths. If you get 90% marks in Maths, you may have potential to get 40% marks in Add Maths. SPM Mathematics In SPM, mathematics is considered as compulsory subject. You must pass this subject in order to get the certificates along with Malay language. Malay language test takes a lot of time and your hand hurts like hell after writing so many words. It’s not simple either. However, the percentage of students fail in Mathematics is higher than Malay Language in real SPM, which is ridiculous Mathematics is the easiest subject in SPM for Science students. I believe PMR students can even do with their PMR standard knowledge because some questions like volume of solid and area and perimeter of a circle being test in SPM. It’s not being taught in SPM therefore you can only depend on your past knowledge in Form 2. Although the questions are a lot easier than Add Maths, There are still some pupils having difficulties in Maths. I see some students leave the 'haven't done' answers after they get the formulae to be applied in the questions, which they didn’t really answer the questions. Some of them don’t understand the questions’ needs. Therefore, exercises and guidance from teachers are essential for improvement.

The questions are so direct and mostly the answers will less likely to appear in decimal. You need a little bit of logic compare to Add maths. Besides that, even if you do well in monthly test, you might end up tilting head during SPM examination hall. It’s because monthly tests don’t follow the real format of SPM. Like Intervention 1 for KL state this year, there's no chance in hell this question is coming out in real SPM.

equalize the same unknown and take out Example : 4p .working steps must be done .combined solid is sum of volume of the solids .40 marks Paper 2 .Section B = 48 marks = 5 questions (answer 4 out of 5) Every chapter will be tested in Paper 1.statement ‘and’ and ‘or’ . there are only certain chapters that will be tested in SPM maths. The whole paper 2 format based on past year questions in random order with brief tips below Confirmed to be tested every year Paper 2 (Section A) 1) Volume of solids (which was taught in form 2) . Since you have already mastered the some basics in PMR.most of the formulae given are for this question . If q.Induction / deduction conclusion 4) Simultaneous linear equation .Argument : .can also use matrix method . then q. it consists of 2 papers Paper 1 .1 ¼ hors .make sure the formulae are used correctly . these shouldn’t be a problem.If p.2 ½ hours . . then p.Based on SPM Maths.40 questions .Section A = 52 marks = 11 questions .2q = 15 (2p + 4q = 19) x2 (times 2 to make unknown 4p same) .premise 1: if Q then R Premise 2: Q Conclusion: R . That’s why I will concentrate more on paper 2. . The questions will be tested from Form 1 until Form 5. Do past year objective questions will strengthen your basic.remaining solid is the subtraction of bigger solid and smaller solid 2) Angles of elevation and depression -using trigonometry rule 3) Mathematical reasoning . In paper 2.
