Quadratic expressions can be written in an equivalent form using the technique known as completing the square. This video explains the basic ideas behind completing the square and how to use the method to solve quadratic equations. 
Year 12, Trig  Non Right Angled Triangles
A common mathematical problem is to find the angles or lengths of the sides of a triangle when some, but not all, of these quantities are known. It is also useful to be able to calculate the area of a triangle from some of this information. 
Year 12, Gradient of a Straight Line
This video explains how to find the gradient of a straight line, and the relationships between parallel lines and perpendicular line gradients. After viewing the video you should be able to: calculate the gradient of a line through two points; use gradients to determine whether two lines are parallel; use gradients to determine whether two lines are perpendicular. 
Year 12, Finding Maximums and Minimums
A derivative provides information about the gradient of a graph. Such points are often associated with the largest or smallest values of the function, In many applications, scientists, engineers, or economists are interested in such points for maximising power, or profit, or minimising losses or costs. 
Year 12, Completing the Square to Find Max and Min
Completing the square has several applications including the solution of quadratic equations. In this video we use it to find the maximum or minimum values of quadratic functions.

Year 13, Differentiating from First Principles
Differentiation is about rates of change for example, the slope of a line is the rate of change of y with respect to x. To find the rate of change of a more general function, it is necessary to take a limit. This is done explicitly for a simple quadratic function. 
Year 13, Areas by Integration
In simple cases, areas can be found by evaluating a single definite integral. Sometimes the integral gives a negative answer, and sometimes the correct answer can be obtained only by splitting the area into several parts and adding and subtracting appropriately.

Year 13, Solving Trig Equations
The strategy we adopt in solving trigonometric equations is to find one solution using knowledge of commonly occurring angles and then use the symmetries in the graphs of the trigonometric functions to deduce additional solutions
