Course content

Students will study 4 modules of Pure mathematics, Core 1 to 4 and any two applied modules from Statistics or Mechanics.

 

Pure Mathematics (C1, C2, C3 and C4): Is the natural extension to GCSE mathematics. Topics such as algebra, trigonometry, and co-ordinate geometry are extended. Also, new topics such as calculus are introduced for the first time.

Mechanics (M1, M2): Includes Newton's Laws of Motion, application of vectors to problems in dynamics and statics, differential equations. Mechanics is the study of the motion of objects and how they respond to forces acting upon them. Many of the ideas found in mechanics are used in the fields of cybernetics, robotics, sports science, design & technology, engineering and physics.

Statistics (S1, S2): Involves the analysis and representation of information along with the ability to justify your conclusions. You will extend your knowledge of probability to include distributions and perform significance tests to further your statistical processing skills.
