STEP Support Programme

STEP 2 Miscellaneous Pure


This STEP 2 module contains a selection of questions which don't fit neatly into the other categories, and consists of 9 STEP 2 questions, some topic notes and useful formulae, "hints" sheets and a "solutions" booklet.

STEP questions are challenging, so don't worry if you get stuck. These STEP 2 modules assume that you have already begun to develop your problem-solving skills and approach to STEP questions by working on the Foundation modules.

About this assignment

These STEP questions involve a variety of topics, such as geometry, sequences, polynomials and binomial expansions.
