Feeling much more comfortable to teach Extension 1. Morris has tried to cover every topic by taking HSC questions and solving which I could easily follow

Good coverage of the course in one day. Probably more advice for how to teach. Harder Extension 1 questions.

The Dux of our school thanked her maths teacher in her formal speech. She said “She made me realize that 4 unit is not so hard”. Morris made me realize that this course is not as challenging as I first thought. I leave reassured, but feel that I need to work on my complex numbers.

Wish the course was longer. I would have loved to go through the harder Ext 1 part of the course.
