Mathematics (Further) ENTRY REQUIREMENT


GCSE Mathematics Grade 6 (7 or higher is strongly recommended) You must also be studying A Level Mathematics


Further Mathematics is a full A Level, which adds to the breadth of topics covered and enhances the experience and understanding of the vast subject that is Mathematics. It consists of various module options and takes students beyond the Mathematics A Level syllabus to begin studying topics that are typically seen during the first year in university science or engineering courses. The possible course of study is outlined below.


A Level • 4 equally weighted exam papers.


Core Pure Mathematics 1 and 2 These are the only compulsory modules and enable students to study problems involving series, complex numbers, matrices, proof, polar coordinates, hyperbolic functions and differential equations.


There are then a number of options from which two must be studied. Options include, but are not limited to:


Further Pure Mathematics – Students begin to study more complex problems involving numerical methods, conic sections, complex numbers, matrix algebra and proof, first order differential equations, second order differential equations, Maclaurin and Taylor series, vectors, calculus.


There may be an opportunity for students to sit an AS exam at the end of Year 12, but this will be decided on an individual basis.


Mechanics - Adds further complexity to the study of kinematics and dynamics. It introduces momentum, elastic collisions and the concepts of work, energy and power.


Decision Mathematics This is the study of algorithms and involves being able to follow, as well as create, processes that enable tasks to be done more efficiently or by a computer. It involves the study of algorithms on graphs, the route inspection problem, critical path analysis and linear programming.
