WJEC Advanced Subsidiary GCE in Mathematics at Ysgol Gyfun Gwyr

Course description

Mathematics

Course content

The A Level course in Mathematics offers the opportunity to continue the study of the subject for its own sake or as a support for other subjects. Mechanics will be of benefit to those students who intend studying subjects such as Physics and DT or who aspire to a career in engineering. For the students who intend studying subjects such as Geography, Biology, Chemistry, the Statistics element will be of benefit. It is possible to study all 3 components of Mathematics i.e. Pure, Mechanics, and Statistics. Pure mathematics includes the study of algebra, geometry, trigonometry and calculus, where many of the ideas are an extension of the work studied at GCSE. Mechanics is primarily concerned with solving problems in dynamics and statics. Statistics is the study of collecting, presenting and analysing data, together with the development and application of probability theory and models. There are numerous combinations which will give an A Level. Discussion with departmental staff to decide on the best combination for the pupils will be very important in the whole process

Entry requirements

It is expected that those students who wish to study Mathematics to Advanced level, will have achieved a good grade at GCSE.
