  1. Hi,

    Ive just put a bid in for a tiffy maths course, can anyone tell me where i can find a good website or referance material to prepare for the course. Im currently not at a REME unit so im getting a lot of confused looks when i ask my chain of command this question.

    Thanks in advance
  2. There is a Tiffy maths cse on the DLP and iirc there is also some info on the 10trg Bn (SEME) site.

    PM me your DII email and I'll send you through the links...
  3. Tiffy Maths is essentially grade A-C GCSE Maths. Tiffy_A_Mech is spot on with his references.
  4. stick your head out from the lad bar, and you will see 25 wagons, 7 will be off road due to awaiting spares, 4 will be butchered beyond salvation, 2 will need batteries, 3 will need pol, duty driver has spammed one, and recycle mech has borrowed another to get his kit out from quarters because he was caught with the local bike. You therefore have how many left?
    the Asm needs one for showing off at the weekend and battalion are due to travel to Salisbury in two days.
    Only maths you will need
  5. You don't need a course to pass Tiffy Maths. A mong can do it (I'm living proof) without a course.
  6. I've heard it's a good piss up with an exam at the end. I just sat the exam at my unit.

    Sent from my iPhone using ARRSE. Please excuse fat A Mech fingers!
  7. If you take a look at the BBC bite size GCSE stuff online you will get the idea.

  9. The Planks are the same, won't let you near the kit to fix it if painting/polishing/keroing is needed to be done and even if they do, it's elephant bogroll on everything that you might possibly touch. Funny how all that changes when they need a car BFGd or a stereo fitted.
  10. i wouldn't worry too much about swatting up prior going on the course. if the instuctor is the same as it was 4 years ago, then you should be ok. Unless you're a f$%^ing SuBo then should you be really be doing the course.

    trust me, you should be fine, you'll have plenty of instruction and you'll get plenty of chances to to mix with the Special Pen Service chaps and ask them why they insist on us updating our passport details and personal information on JPA every 2 weeks. Plus its a good piss up in Winchester.
  11. If you want to brush up on your GCSE maths, take yourself off to Waterstones or Ottakers or whatever they call themselves and go to the education and reference section. There is no porno section unless you look at the animated magazines on the way. Look for either a CGP GCSE Revision guide that includes higher maths or the Collins revision guide for GCSE it has what looks to like a radio telescope dish on the front. Make sure you get the one that says "Higher" not "Foundation" on the front.

    I will supply the ISDN if you need it

    I now teach maths to secondary school pupils after 22years of strangling nuts and fixing the odd vehicle or two.
  12. memories... oh memories... one of the best piss ups alright, there again that was in Mulhiem in the late 80's!! going to Dusseldorf (Altstadt) on the pop... the exam.. hmm cant remember :)
  13. Do you need to learn chain rule?
  14. No not during tiffy maths. Tiffy maths is taken purely to ensure that tiffy veh and wpn candidates are above a certain benchmark and will all be able to start the tiffy course from a level playing field.

    Chain rule is used during the tiffy course, why do you ask?
  15. Cos I fcukin hates chain rule... we do it on the Royal Signals Class 1 course for Sys Eng Tech.
