    Hi Tim. Thanks for these - very helpful. Trying to use the 2014 mock resources...not sure why, but the link to HL 2014 Paper 1 MS isn't working?

    recurrence relations
    I've managed to fix all the math expressions/equations on this page. It's quite a long page, so I'm thinking of splitting it into three different pages.
