    I've looked into this in the past. It's not like it was in my day. The notation is different, and the exam questions don't match either. The most able students can draw on the skills form both subjects. But for most it just confuses them.

    I've also looked at this, but it's never seemed practical and worthwhile. It can help them to revisit a topic, with another teacher and even with a slightly different approach, some time later. Also as wire247 says, there's the risk of confusing them if you do the two together,
    My personal gripe in the past has been that we've had to do SHM in physics before they've done differentiation of sin/cos in maths. That doesn't seem to be a problem this year.
