What can run at a speed of 123.75 km h-1?
What can jump in a perfect quadratic arc?
What can heal a bruise at an exponential rate?
What can generate a perfect statistical outlier of zero?
What can move in an arc of decreasing heights to make a beautiful sequence based on a modulus exponential sine function?
The answer to all of the above questions is, of course, a unicorn!
It turns out that there’s more to these mythical creatures than meets the eye. In fact, they’re a mathematician’s best friend.
Here at Save My Exams, the Maths Team have been getting creative with our brand new A Level Topic Questions.
Because we create all of our unique content from scratch, we pride ourselves on researching accurate information and facts to include: like the weight of a baby otter, the height a hot air balloon can rise, or the replication rate of a new virus.
But we also believe that, just because we stick closely to your exam board specification, our questions don’t have to be boring. After all, maths is the subject that puts astronauts in space, F1 cars on the track, and TikTok videos on your phone.
So, when our writers want to write a question on a really interesting bit of maths that won’t quite fit a realistic situation, we’re more than happy to stretch our creative imaginations.
If you’ve been diligently working through our newest Topic Question collections, you might have already spotted a few extra-special unicorn questions. Let’s look at an example from our CIE Pure 2 1.3 Further Modelling with Functions Topic Questions Q3 Very Hard
Here’s a challenge for the AQA Statistics students, taken from our AQA Statistics 3.1 Basic Probability Topic Questions Q8 H
Why not go on a unicorn hunt through some of the new Topic Questions for your A Level exam board to see if you can spot some more?
