ABOUT THE COURSE
Do you excel in mathematics? Do you enjoy solving problems?
If so, you should seriously consider A Level Maths. Maths is a demanding and challenging subject, but it can be extremely rewarding if you are prepared to put in the time and effort. Mathematics has wide applications in areas such as industry, business, finance, science and technology. In fact, there continues to be a national shortage of qualified mathematicians, so this course will give you a competitive edge with future employers.
You will study a combination of pure mathematics, statistics and mechanics. There will be some choice for students in the types of maths topics they choose to develop further. The pure maths topics include: algebra, co-ordinate geometry, polynomials, trigonometry, calculus, differentiation and integration techniques, partial fractions, vectors and differential equations.
WHAT WE ADD
We host weekly Maths Workshops where you can practise techniques and stretch your knowledge alongside students from other classes. There will be regular assignments, so that you can gain confidence and develop the ideas that you have been exposed to. There will also be opportunities for students to experience how mathematics is used outside of the classroom through trips, as well as employer engagement opportunities with local companies.
