Bring your compass, ruler and protractor for exam

In complex number loci and geometry, it is good to construct a fairly accurate Argand diagram, so that students can visualise correctly and also check their final answer against the measured dimension.

For example, in 2012 papercomplex q

If we use a compass and ruler we can construct the following:

complex number loci n geometry

Of course, we need to work out the exact answer using simple geometry. However, we can compare our final answers with the figure using a ruler and protractor.

So bring along your ruler, compass and protractor for Further  maths  exam 🙂
