Years 12 and 13 follow a two year mathematics enhancement programme focusing on developing skills in algebra and applying problem solving techniques to prepare them for final examinations and further study.
There are six modules studied at A Level Mathematics.
Core 1 – Basic Algebra, Polynomials, Coordinate Geometry, Differentiation and Integration.
Core 2 – Transformations of functions, Sequences and series, Trigonometry, Indices and logarithms, Further differentiation and Further integration.
Core 3 – Functions, Differentiation, Trigonometric functions, Exponentials and logarithms, Integration and Numerical methods.
Core 4 – Algebra and functions, Binomial series, Trigonometry and compound angles, Exponential models, Further calculus and Vectors.
Statistics 1 – Numerical measures, Probability, The binomial distribution, The normal distribution, Estimation and Correlations and Regression.
Decision 1 – Introductory ideas, Minimum spanning trees, Shortest path, Route inspection, The travelling salesman problem, Matching problems, Linear programming, Sorting and Algorithms. (From 2017 this module will no longer be part of the A Level syllabus)
Mechanics 1 – Mathematical modelling, Kinematics in one and two dimensions, Statics and forces, Momentum, Newton’s laws of motion, Connection particles and Projectiles.
Further Mathematics A Level is available upon request.
