About The Course
Did you enjoy maths at school? Do you enjoy solving problems? Do you feel confident with the work you have met so far at GCSE?
If so, A Level Maths could be perfect for you. A Level 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. The pure maths topics include: algebra, co-ordinate geometry, polynomials, trigonometry, calculus, differentiation and integration techniques, partial fractions, vectors and differential equations. This two year linear course has all of the exams at the end of the second year, where students sit three papers that are two hours long each.
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 in class. This, along with a termly assessment, will be used to monitor your progress and identify areas of strength and areas where a more detailed study is needed. 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.
