I would say, “I have prepared some revision work on Unit 2 “ if the revision was of some aspects of the unit, but “I have prepared some revision work of Unit 2 “ if the entire unit was revised.

In British English, we say “maths “ with the “s “. In American English, they say “math “ without the “s “ on the end.

I would say either "I “m preparing..." or "I have prepared..." (as ballycastle1 suggested) because "I prepare..." implies that you do it every day/always/regularly etc.

Hello,
I would say, "I have prepared a revision of Unit 2."

Also, Tint is correct. There is no such word as "maths" in English.
For example, you would say, "I have a lot of math to do."
You can also use "math" as an adjective when you are talking about many things (math books, math questions, and so on.)

I hope this helps!

Bluebird, I never said that there is no such word as Maths in English : ) I said that “maths “ is British. I “ve used the term “maths “ all my life. “Maths “, as others have pointed out, is an abbreviation of “mathematics “; thus perfectly correct. America is the only English-speaking country that uses “math “ (that I know of, that is).  Wink

Hi Miss Noor
 
I would say: "I have prepared some revision work on Unit 2" or, even more simply, "Let“s revise Unit 2".
 
BTW, re math/s, like everyone says, and according to the Australian National Dictionary:
 
maths = British English (which is what we mostly use in Australia)
math = American English
 
I recommend you follow whichever style of English is taught in your schools:  American or British.
 
Cheers
 
Jayho
 
Edit: Difference between American and British English + pronunciation of each
