VCE Mathematical Methods CAS / Methods Unit 1 Failure
« Last post by sunshinejjk on 11 minutes ago »
I havenít been doing well at all in methods unit 1, Iím doing it as an advanced course in Year 10 but am finding it very difficult as the teacher just rambles on without clearly explaining the topic. A lot of people in the class are failing. I would try to teach myself the topics but theyíre quite advanced however the teacher only makes me more confused. My sac scores have been as follows:
- Sac 1: 42%
- Sac 2: 37% (Fail)
- Sac 3: 16% (Fail)
My teacher says I have to do better on the exam in order to maybe get an S. If I get an N what will happen? Will I have to repeat the unit? Do I still get to do unit 2? What will this affect? Please help me.

Good job, you seem like you have a relatively good understanding of how the Balance of payments works.
Keep asking questions though. The more you ask, the more prepared you'll be for the SAC.

Thank you so much for your help, Seamus. I will definitely do so.

Got Eco SAC back - 29/30. Pretty good score, but I should've aced it. I made a really silly mistake that I could've easily avoided if I read the question carefully. At least now I know I won't make the same mistake in the exam.

Accounting SAC - 38/40. Again, it's not bad, but that score could've easily been 40/40. At least I have learnt a valuable lesson though that will result in me not making the same error in the exam. 4 other people got higher than me - what a disaster.

English Language Essay - 24/25. Great, I topped the cohort. My study technique worked very well and I shall do the exact same thing for the next sac.
The Short Answer Question SAC honestly could've easily been at A+. I looked at where I went wrong and ALL of the questions I got wrong were because of my failure to identify the situational context, which is disappointing since I literally knew all the theory inside out.

Today:

Accounting - 2 hours
Algorithmics - 2 hours
Economics - 2.5 Hours

Productivity today == 7/10

What I can do to improve:

- Stop being a lazy fuck.
- Set goals for the day - e.g. Finish Notes for chapter X, Do Y exam questions, and try to finish it before Z o'clock.
    - It is probs good to structure a weekend like a school day, so that I am not inclined to procrastinate.
- If I get stuck on something, dont just sit there feeling helpless AND don't just run away from the problem by opening YouTube and watching random shit for 5 minutes) -- Tackle the goddamn problem.

Hi everyone again,
As my SAC is just days away. I've got two questions about the topic. Firstly, is the reason for the balance of payments equaling out because countries like Australia who run a CAD means they're spending on foreign goods and services or buying loans [Not buying loans, we Take out loans or Issue Government Bonds] to fund this Yes, you are right. We spend a lot on foreign goods and pay a lot in interest payments to foreign countries on our foreign debt (which arises due to the savings-investment gap) and thus we have to seek finance from abroad to fund the CAD. This means countries whom they buy off, run a CAS meaning they have money to spend Yes, this is correct. As Australia has spent their money to finance expansion (most likely) countries like China who have a CAS, see Australia as an appropriate place to invest in because of the high economic activitycorrect, and hence the CAFA increases The CAFA doesn't increase; the CAFA SURPLUS increases . As well, why are higher interest rates perceived as a good thing (in terms of the exchange rate) They aren't necessarily a good thing. Higher interest rates could usually be argued to be unfavourable since they encourage capital inflows, causing an appreciation of the dollar and hence reducing the attractiveness of our exports and increasing the attractiveness of foreign imports, which slows the growth in economic activity domestically. However, one could argue that an appreciation of the Australian dollar potentially makes Supply-side conditions more favourable for domestic firms who source the majority of their inputs from abroad, and thus the appreciation of the AUD can help expand our productive capacity.? Thanks, any help is appreciated.

Good job, you seem like you have a relatively good understanding of how the Balance of payments works.
Keep asking questions though. The more you ask, the more prepared you'll be for the SAC.

The whole thing of similar triangles is just ratios.

A:a, B:b, C:c.

How have you already tried working these out?

Yeah well... I think that comes with study, not procrastination.
But who am I to judge :-\
