Course Description 

Having successfully completed your GCSE course in mathematics at grade 7 or above, you are now in a position to tackle Mathematics at a more advanced level. You also need to enjoy the rigorous and challenging nature of mathematics. Mathematics is the tool and language of commerce, engineering and other sciences – physics, computing, biology etc. It helps us recognise patterns and to understand the world around us. Mathematics plays a vital, often unseen, role in many aspects of modern life. Students find A-Level Maths a stimulating and rewarding course.

 

Aims

The course aims to develop the ability to apply mathematical skills and techniques in other subjects and to lay foundations for the further study of mathematics and other disciplines.

The course covers elements of Pure Maths, Statistics and Mechanics.

You need to have achieved grade 7 or above in your GCSE Mathematics exam to enroll into this course. You also need to enjoy the rigorous and challenging nature of mathematics.

Maths can lead to and support many courses in both further and higher education. Obvious careers include accountancy, banking, engineering, medicine, computing and scientific statistical research. However, there are many other diverse areas where mathematical skills are recognised and encouraged as invaluable and essential.

Pupils follow the EdExcel A level Mathematics (9MA0) course which is 100% exam assessment in the form of two Pure 2 hour papers each worth 33% of the final exam and one Statistics and Mechanics 2 hour paper equally split between Statistics and Mechanics and worth 33% of the marks. All papers require a calculator and all questions are compulsory.

SOW overview

Pure Mathematics extends knowledge of algebra and trigonometry and introduces new ideas such as calculus, logarithms and vectors. Students also study applications of mathematics through the study of Mechanics and Statistics. Mechanics is the study of the motion of objects and the forces acting upon them. In the Statistics, they learn how to analyse data and draw conclusions from it using probability and other concepts.
