HOW I CAN KICK BUTT IN

THE HSC IN 4U MATHS!!!


By : Khiet Hoang Worlds craziest teacher

WARNING
This book may be considered by some as offensive, insensitive and politically incorrect ..and
if you do then go and tell someone who cares!
..uhh and it also contains lots of speling and grematical erorsand the odd maths error!
Footnote: (should really be at the bottom of the page but who cares.) The author of this book has
about 500808 different split personalities so sometimes he (she/it/they/we) uses the first person (often
I) to refer to himself. Other times he uses third person such as the author. I believe he uses
perpendicular pronouns too..so if you are confused already before you even read the rest of this book
then he has succeeded! I can tell you that one of the authors favourite sayings to his students is are
you scarred for life yet? and then laugh very loudly in an infectious manner! Youd have to be one of
my students to understand the joke! The man is crazy!!!!
Acknowledgements:
I would like to thank my Mum, my Dad for bringing me into this world, my wife, my kids, my
dog
No seriously, Id like to thank all of my students and ex-students at Kellyville High and at the various
coaching institutions in Sydney. By teaching you I have learnt a great deal about how the NSW 4U
syllabus should be taught. Thank you for putting up with me and my eccentricities.
Id also like to thank my colleagues and friends who have read this and have given feed back and
support. This humble grass hopper owes you.
Most of all I must thank my wife, Vanessa for being so understanding about me writing this during the
wee hours of the mornings in my spare time.

Why I wrote this book.


This book was compiled by an experienced teacher who has taught this course from as early as 1989.
He was NOT a terribly good student at 2U/3U/4U maths (.who also refuses to recognise the new
course names as the names are the only things that changed. The syllabus content has NOT) and had to
teach himself these courses again during 1990-1991 using this book below. This book was written with
the 1982 syllabus in mind and is only good until 2010 because the syllabus is due to be changed then
and who knows what will become of the new syllabus. If there are only cosmetic changes then this
book will still be useful. Else, if youre ever short on toilet paper then.
This book explains the whole 4U course in easy to understand language and it is intended to be used as
a self help guide for students as well as teachers.
90% of 2U/3U and especially 4U is about following certain procedures to obtain the answers. This
book is just that. You can easily get over 90% for 2, 3 and 4U maths just by following the procedures in
this book alone.
Students often find 3U/4U (and even 2U) hard. This is the case NOT because the content is hard. I can
teach my 10 year old son (in 2007) some 4U maths concepts! Will he be able to remember it is another
story?!!! Will he want to learn?!!!!
Maths IS hard though for the following reasons:
1)

There is TOO MUCH to REMEMBER.


From the formula perspective alone, can you REMEMBER about 15 pages of typed up
formulas, let alone know which one to use? If you cannot remember, then do General maths
because 90% of the formulas are given to you. Somewhere in this book youll find all the
formulas youll need to know.

2)

People fear and RESIST any CHANGE in their lives


..and hence they do NOT REMEMBER new definitions or concepts given to them.
When a new theory or formula is given to students the first thing they often ask is why? Or say
Thats too hard. How am I going to remember that (cast your mind back to the quadratic
formula..Oh sorry you dont remember that one? my point exactly. For those who do
remember, thats the one with a, b and c in it. How about the distance formula from a point to a
line..what you didnt know there was such a formula? ......... Uhh yeah there is and that one
is not even 3U maths. It is 2U maths !!!!!).

3)

Students DONT UNDERSTAND the CONCEPTS


..and hence do NOT REMEMBER them.
Unfortunately maths is often typically taught by teachers putting a few QUESTIONS on the
board, showing how the QUESTIONS ARE TO BE SOLVED. They then ask the students to do
a million (or thereabout) questions for homework which the students, of course, find difficult to

286283476.doc

-4-

K Hoang 2007

do because they didnt understand the CONCEPTS of the topic. Then the teacher puts some
more questions on the board the next day, again showing the students how to solve those
questions and again ask the students to do another million (or more) questions for homework
..and the vicious cycle goes onmeanwhile the students fall behind.
And the text book also teaches the same way. They show how two or three questions are done
and hardly show the concepts behind it, or if they do it is not explicitly shown. One of the text
books Ive seen shows a couple of questions with solutions in one chapter and then the concepts
are shown in the NEXT chapter. I think the rationale there was to show Oh do you see how
hard it is for you to do the question this way but with this formula it is so much easier!!!
Well, why wasnt it shown in the same chapter at the beginning of the chapter in the first place?
4)

Students PONDER upon the beauty of THE QUESTION.


This is the biggest problem of all. This happens in not only maths but in all subjects. This is
the main reason why HSC students do not do as well as they should in the HSC.
What is the problem? Simply put, students, when sitting an exam, spend far too much time on
questions they CANT do and very little or no time on questions they CAN do and hence run
out of time. Many of my students often say Oh, I didnt have time to do the last question and it
was the easiest question of the exam!!!
My response is always: Well then why didnt you do that question first? which is often met
with another of the students question: Oh can you do that?
Uhhyeah you can.
I often say to my 4U maths students that you can suck at 4U maths but the idea is to make
others suck at it worse than you. That is unfortunately how the UAI works. It simply ranks you
in order from highest to lowest. The aim of any HSC exam is NOT to finish the paper but to
finish AS MUCH AS YOU CAN. So if you ponder upon the beauty of the questions that you
could not do and accidentally ignore questions that you can do, than you will suck worse then
your HSC peers.
The rule of thumb is if you read the question and you do not understand or have a mental blank
you count to 3 and if you still do not know then go onto the next question. Dont sit there and
ponder upon its beauty. That is the real secret behind the HSC!!! There is an actual procedure
on how to attack an HSC paper also somewhere in this book
Ill give you two actual real life everyday situations and one of my personal experiences where
people ponder upon the beauty of the questions:
Situation 1
2 DAY FM (and other radio stations) often has a contest where they ask the contestants 10
questions in a minute. You answer all 10 correctly you get $1000 otherwise you get $10 (or
$100 depending on the radio station) per question. If the contestant does not know the answer
they are allowed to say pass and the next question is asked. All questions are always asked
until they answer all the questions correctly or run out of time.

286283476.doc

Not many contestants get $1000!!!


Most often get $50 or even $60. A lot get $30 - $40. Some even get $10 or nothing!!!
This is NOT because they do not know a lot of the answers. Its simply because they ponder
upon the beauty of one or two questions and before you know it, the minute is up.
Instead of saying pass STRAIGHT AWAY when they do not know the answer, typical
contestants say Uhh can you read the question again? or Uhhh I read that in
Cosmopolitan the other day..what was his name again?......Uhh, what was the question
again? Of course I am exaggerating here a little but you get the idea.
Situation 2
Students often claim that they study 3-4 hours some say even 6 hours a day after school and still
their marks do not reflect their efforts!!! Why is this so? Its because they ponder upon the
beauty of the questions!!! This happens for ALL subjects not just for maths.
When students come across a difficult question or concept or theme or theory or a certain place
in their essay etc they often sit and ponder sometimes for hours (sometimes on just one question
- I know because I myself have done it!!!!) because if they leave the question then it means in
their mind that they have failed and so they must do that particular question before they can do
the next one. Its quite a funny psychological thing! The right thing to do is of course to move
onto something else or ask your teacher or friend or tutor etc the next day so that you can carry
on your study in a productive and effective manner.
If you ponder upon the beauty of one or two questions then you will never finish the million or
so question for maths that were set for homework.
Remember the teacher asked you to do the million questions but they did not say that you have
to do them in any order. That means that you finish as many as you can in the time set.
This approach of skipping questions should be done not just for homework but for class work
and particularly for exams (especially HSC exams). Make sure you come back to the ones you
skipped and attempt them when you have done all the others that you can do.
One of my own personal experiences.
In writing this book the author pondered upon the beauty of this section alone ..sitting
there thinking and thinking some more and so far for the last 2 pages spent 3 hours pondering
what to write. What he should have done is he should have stood up. Go and make a cup of
coffee and write it the next dayBut no, he must finish this section otherwise he cannot
write the next section..that funny psychological bsremember?
Sorry got to go.got other things I must write for this book..the pages of formulas
for example which is much easier to write then the pages above....
I think I made my point..NEVER

THE QUESTION!

Most Important Procedure for HSC.


Out of all of the procedures in this book this is by far the most important one. Here it is:
0) Take a few (10) deep breaths so you can relax and also get some brain food (oxygen) into the brain.
1) Read the whole paper in 2 minutes (you WILL be given at least 5 minutes reading time in the HSC
regardless of how crappy your school is in NOT giving you reading time in the trials or in any test. I
give reading time for EVERY single exam I give to my students from year 7 to year 12 even if its just
for a minute or 10 seconds for my one minute exam!). Of course you are not to read word for word
question for question in the 2 minutes (you just dont have time for that unless you are a very good
speed reader). Instead you glance at the whole paper to see what you can do and plan to do those first.
Trust me, this is the most productive 2 minutes of the exam.
2) Write down the formulas next to each question when you are asked to start writing since your mind
is still fresh at the start of the exam. Theres nothing worse then you not remembering the formulas
mid-way through the exam even though you know the topic. And dont stress if you dont remember at
the start. Youll dig it out later out of that brain of yours during the exam. The idea is not to stress your
self but to remain calmeasier said then done. Remember its just a STUPID test (all tests are stupid
believe me and youll unfortunately go through a lot of tests in your lifetime). It does not change the
fact that you are a wonderful person! (pay me later for that one later!!!)
3) Do the exam in the order that you can skipping the ones that you cant. If question 1 is the hardest
question for you then skip it straight away and go to question 2. If question 2 is also not obvious to you
then go to Q3. I often deliberately put question 1 as the hardest question in my exams to train my
students to skip. Remember if you have read the question and for some reason its not obvious to you
then dont sit there and ponder upon its beauty. Go onto the next question straight away. Dont be afraid
to do this because even though you consciously leave the question your mind subconsciously works at
the solution to try and find the answer.
Your mind is a wonderful machine for that very reason. And I can prove it to you.
All of us have problems of our own. But how often do we CONSCIOUSLY think about our problems
during the course of the day. We still carry on with our busy lives but our brain continues to work on
the problem and then somehow the solution presents itself!!!
Just make sure though that you make a marking on the questions that you skipped so you can come
back to do them later.
4) When you get to the end of the paper go back to the beginning of the exam and repeat steps 2 to 4
until you finish every question in the exam or when time is up, whichever is sooner.
5) Check the exam for silly mistakes or check whether you have answered what they asked for. They
may have asked you to factorise for example and you gave them the roots instead! If you do finish the
whole paper then dont just sit there and show off oh look at me Im a smart arI finished the paper
first before yous all!!!
Remember the idea of any HSC paper is NOT to finish the whole paper but to FINISH
CORRECTLY AS MUCH AS YOU CAN.
