Hi there,
Have recently been teaching the 1380 content and I was just wondering if there were any content differences between the 1380 and 1MA0?
I know there's going to be more wordy questions, was just wondering whether any topic had been put it/taken out?

I'm thinking mainly for Higher level, but if anyone knows of any changes for Foundation then that would be really helpful too.
If not, then if you know where a document is that highlights the changes that'd be great too. I've tried finding it but I'm new to the whole planning Schemes of Work business!
Cheers

Taken out:
Moving averages
I'm pretty sure " if a, b and c are lengths is pi ab^2 an area " questions went too

Dunny is correct. Dimensions theory is gone as is the graph of y = tan x (did you even realise it was in?!).

Hi
Checked some old emails and found this list I put together for OCR linear - you may want to double check it against your specification though (e.g. OCR linear retained moving averages) but hope it's of use.

Foundation - IN:
• Multiply and divide mixed numbers
Foundation - OUT
• 3D coordinates
• Imperial/metric conversions (will be given, no need to memorise)
• Find the midpoint of a line segment AB given A and B (now higher only)
• Pythagoras to find the length of a line segment AB given A and B (now higher only)
• Standard form notation (now higher only)
• Expand product of two linear expressions (now higher only)
• Postive enlargement scale factors less than one (now higher only)
Higher - IN
• More than two successive events can be used in probability questions
Higher - OUT
• Solve simultaneously a line intersecting a circle
• Equation of a circle
