Mathematics A Level at Beechen Cliff School

Course description

Extend your mathematical knowledge, develop your logical reasoning and problem solving skills. Mathematics at A’Level builds on the work you have done at GCSE as well as introducing Calculus (amongst other things!)

Mathematics is not only a beautiful subject in its own right, but one that underpins many other branches of learning. As well as laying a foundation for further study/a career in Engineering, Science or Finance, the problem solving and logical reasoning skills involved mean that an A’Level qualification in Mathematics is very highly regarded by universities and Employers.

Course content

Pure Topics

Proof, algebra and functions, co-ordinate geometry in the (x,y) plane, sequences and series, trigonometry, exponentials and logarithms, differentiation, integration, vectors and numerical methods

Mechanics Topics

Quantities and units in mechanics, kinematics, forces, Newton’s Laws and moments

Statistics Topics

Statistical sampling, data presentation and interpretation, probability, statistical distributions and statistical hypothesis testing

Future opportunities

Pretty much anything! The wonderful thing with Mathematics A’Level is that it allows you to keep your options open. It will support University applications in almost every subject. There are clear links with Physics, and less obvious ones with Chemistry, Biology, Economics, Geography and Psychology.
