Mathematics & Further Mathematics *FEES PAYABLE* at New Hall School

Course description

Mathematics at AS and Advanced GCE is a course worth studying not only as a supporting subject for the physical and social sciences, but in its own right. It is challenging but interesting. It builds on work at GCSE, but also involves new ideas produced by some of the greatest minds in history.

While studying mathematics you will be expected to:

 use mathematical skills and knowledge to solve problems

 solve problems by using mathematical arguments and logic. You will also have to understand and demonstrate what is meant by proof in mathematics

 simplify real-life situations so that you can use mathematics to show what is happening and what might happen in different circumstances

 use the mathematics that you learn to solve problems that are given to you in a real-life context

 use calculator technology and other resources (such as formulae booklets or statistical tables) effectively and appropriately; understand calculator limitations and when it is inappropriate to use such technology

Entry requirements

At least a grade A in GCSE Higher Level Mathematics.
