Mathematics/Further Mathematics at All Hallows Catholic College

Course description

It is a little known fact that Albert Einstein found Maths difficult: the man who wrote down the equations describing the Theories of Relativity could not solve them himself and took two attempts to qualify for Zurich Polytechnic.

But then again Einstein did not take 'A' level Mathematics.

This course is designed to be challenging but accessible and enjoyable. The aim is to develop ability and confidence in the application of Mathematics, together with an appreciation of how mathematical ideas help in the understanding of the world and society in which we live.

Each course is composed of six separate but inter-related modules, equivalent to about a term’s study.

The first unit in the maths course looks at a new area of the subject, considering how maths can be used to some real world logistical problems. It then goes on to develop the skills required to use maths in all sorts of applications through four pure maths units and a statistics unit.

The further maths course can be varied slightly to cater for the needs of specific groups but will include a unit in decision maths, three or more pure maths units and possibly units in mechanics and statistics.
