Hey guys

do we need to memorise the SUVAT equations for exam 1?

Here's a copy of the formula sheet for this year. Everything you've learned this year is assessable in both exams - so, if it's not in that sheet, but it is in the study design, then yes, you need to memorise it
Currently Undertaking: Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Supramolecular Photochemistry (things that don't bond but they do and glow pretty colours)

Previous Study:
Bachelor of Science Advanced (Research) - Monash University, majoring in Mathematical Statistics and Chemistry
Something in VCE, shit was too long ago to remember

Constant acceleration formulas are not on the study design. They may be used as appropriate, but you are expected to solve constant acceleration problems using calculus. I can't recall ever feeling the need to memorise SUVAT because using calculus or a velocity-time graph for constant acceleration is so straightforward, but YMMV.
