MathematicsWe consider Mathematics as an intellectual adventure and invite students to see it in the same light.
Core Mathematics looks to extend topics and material introduced at GCSE in algebra, geometry, trigonometry and sequences in addition to introducing new topics such as calculus, numerical methods and logarithms. Together these areas form the building blocks of the subject and account for two thirds of the Mathematics qualification.
Applied Mathematics makes up the remaining third of the qualification and focuses on developing knowledge and understanding of the real-life applications of Mathematics. The strands are Decision, Statistics and Mechanics and as each compliment other AS and A level subjects you might also study, students usually study a mixture of two strands. A-level Mathematics provides a foundation for further studies in a variety of subjects including Science and Engineering.
In addition to increasing and broadening your knowledge of Core Mathematics, you will also study modules from each of the three Applied Mathematics strands.
