Maths GCE A Level at Notre Dame Catholic Sixth Form College

Course description

The A level Maths course builds on the skills, knowledge and techniques you have studied at GCSE. You will develop your understanding of mathematics and mathematical processes in a way that promotes confidence and fosters enjoyment. You will use mathematical argument and reasoning together with mathematical language and proof. As the course progresses, you will take increasing responsibility for your own learning and the evaluation of your own mathematical development. Students will use their mathematical knowledge to problem solve in both familiar and unfamiliar situations. Mathematical modelling of real life problems is also a key feature of the course.


Course content

You will study topics from the fields of pure mathematics, mechanics and statistics. The increased importance of the use of technology means all students will need a graphical calculator for this course and you will be expected to use graphing packages. Geogebra can be downloaded free. Assessment at the end of the two years is by three exams of two hours duration.
