Further Mathematics (AQA) at The Duke of York's Royal Military School
A Level Further Mathematics is designed to broaden and deepen the mathematical knowledge and skills developed when studying A Level Mathematics. It provides a stimulating experience for those who enjoy the subject.
A Level Further Mathematics is made up of six units. We generally take the units, Further Pure 1,2 and 3, Statistics 1, Mechanics 2 and Decision Mathematics 2. The Further Pure units build upon the techniques in Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry and Calculus developed from the Pure Core units as well as introducing topics such as complex numbers, matrices, proof, hyperbolic functions, polar coordinates and differential equations. Mathematical applications make up the remainder of the qualification and there are various options to suit the needs of individual students.
Students who wish to take Further Mathematics should be expecting to gain an A* at GCSE Mathematics.
Mathematics is highly regarded by all employers and universities, precisely because of the demands it makes and the skills it develops. Degrees in Engineering, Physics, Chemistry, Economics, Accounting and Actuarial Science will require a good grade in A Level Mathematics.
