Maths

Maths and Further Maths are both available for A Level study. Both courses are popular, demanding and well worth the challenge. We also offer a Core Maths qualification which applies mathematics to the real world and is designed to support the study of other A-level subjects.

There is now only one A-level Maths qualification available and all students will study Pure Mathematics, Statistics and Mechanics.

Pure Mathematics is expected to count for two thirds of the course with Mechanics and Statistics making up a sixth each.

Pure Mathematics

Students will study proof, algebra and functions, coordinate geometry, sequences and series, trigonometry, differentiation, integration and numerical methods.

Mechanics

Quantities and units in mechanics, kinematics, forces and Newton’s laws and moments will be studied.

Statistics

The topics of statistical sampling, data presentation and interpretation, probability, statistical distributions and statistical hypothesis testing will be covered.

Calculators will be allowed in all exams and the ability to use of them for more sophisticated calculations will be tested.  There will also be more emphasis on problem solving across all elements.

Enrichment

Senior Maths Challenge and Senior Team Challenge
