In most A Level mark schemes, this is not a requirement.
Examiners are looking for you to demonstrate your understanding of key historical concepts and ideas, show that you understand the significance of a question (it was asked for a reason), show the ability to explain and analyse those ideas in relation to the question (rather than just narrate or describe), develop your ideas within the essay and write a clearly structured argument which follows for the reader.
None of these requirements demand that you unthinkingly parrott other historians.
However, depending on how you learn, associating key ideas or arguments with particular historians or groups of historians can help you remember the core parts of your course. Also, it is an easy way to show historical knowledge.
Ultimately, if you learn in a way that suits memorising other historians's quotes, then it can be very helpful. But it's not required.see more
The letters "x" and "y", or any other similar letter in an equation, are examples of unknown variables.
What this means is that we don't know their value, and often the aim of the game is to work this out.
You've been using unknown variables for ages. For example, if you were given a basket and told that: a) it had 20 pieces of fruit; b) it only had bananas and apples in it; and c) it had 12 bananas in it, then you can work out that the basket had 8 apples.
This can be shown using unknown variables - the principle is the same:
When x = apples...
12 + x = 20
x = 20 - 12
x = 8.
More complicated equations work on the same principle - it's just a way for us to find out a value we need to know!see more
A bar-chart is a graph where the height of the bar measures the frequency of a particular category which that bar represents.
For a histogram, however, the height is the frequency density. This means that the area of the bar is the frequency. These are usually used when the category is a range (e.g Ages 5-10, 10-15 and so on).
For histograms: area = frequency = frequency density x width of the bar's category.see more
