A’ Level Mathematics
Year 12 and 13 follow an enhanced two-year mathematics programme which focusses on developing advanced skills in a wide range of mathematical areas, involving both Pure and Applied Mathematics.
Following the new specification, all the A-Level Maths exams are taken at the end of the two-year course and cover the content of both the first and second year of teaching.
These exams a broken down into two Pure Mathematics papers and one Applied Mathematics paper.
As part of the Pure Mathematics students can expect to study the following –
· Algebraic Proof and Advanced Algebra and Functions
· Calculus (Differentiation and Integration)
· Advanced Coordinate Geometry
· Exponentials and Logarithms
· Binomial Expansion
· Sequence and Series
The Applied Mathematics consists of Statistics and Mechanics units.
As part of Statistics students can expect to study both experimental and theoretical statistics, including the following –
· Statistical Sampling Methods
· Data Representation and Interpretation
· Statistical Distributions
· Statistical Hypothesis Testing
As part of the Mechanics Applied Mathematics students will be taught about –
· Quantities and Units in Mechanics
