Course description

Core Maths is a brand new course for those who want to keep up their valuable maths skills but who are not planning on taking AS or A-level mathematics. At the end of the two-year course, you will come out with a level 3 qualification – similar to an AS. 


Course content

Core Maths has been designed to maintain and develop real-life skills. What you study is not purely theoretical or abstract; it can be applied on a day-today basis in work, study or life and most courses will include a financial maths element. It will also help with other A-level subjects – in particular with science, geography, business studies, psychology and economics.

At Heworth we see Core Maths being offered to students taking AS subjects that have an element of maths but you have not chosen to study AS maths
