STEP downloads (pdf format)
A new resource
NRICH have launched a new collection of free
online STEP preparation resources:
NRICH STEP web site
designed as a series of linked modules
for individual additional study. The programme is
aimed at mathematics students who have completed the
first year of A-level or equivalent study:
students can start working on them from the summer after the
end of Year 12, but it is possible to start later and catch up.
Each fortnight, a new module will appear, consisting of problems,
articles, worked examples,
advice for STEP candidates and much more.
Past papers possibly now not available from OCR
[But beware: the syllabus has changed since the earlier papers were set]
If you click below you should
see a video of a STEP question being tackled.
But note: there is a mistake
in the paper III question
at about 15 mins (omission of a 3/2 power and a factor of a)
which I haven't time to correct at the moment; there is
also a mistake in the paper I question at about 10 minutes
40 seconds, where a couple of graphs appear upside down. Sorry
I haven't added to this for many years, though if you think
it would be *very* useful, I'd be willing to add some videos from
recent papers (let me know: email@example.com).
