Mathematics

A Level

COURSE CONTENT:

A Level Mathematics is often thought of as a subject of complicated calculations. However, calculations form only a small part of this rigorous discipline which requires clear thinking and the development of specific ideas into generalised solutions. 

On one hand A Level Mathematics deals with highly abstract topics which require considerable imagination combined with the discipline of ‘proof’. On the other hand mathematics underpins virtually all the practical developments in science, IT and economics which have formed our modern world. 

A Level Mathematics gives you the opportunity to study topics such as geometry, calculus and trigonometry (pure mathematics) and to use these ideas within the ‘applied’ topics such as mechanics and statistics. Mechanics is strongly linked to physics and builds on ideas of motion and forces to work out how and why objects move. Statistics allows us to make sense of the complex and variable world around us via analytical methods in order to draw reliable conclusions from ‘sets’ of information
