Mathematics A Level at Brimsham Green School

Course description

In pure mathematics students study a wide range of techniques such as calculus and trigonometry which are powerful tools for solving problems. The applications units allow the student to apply techniques to real life problems using a modelling approach; this is done through studying force and motion in mechanics and through data analysis in statistics.

Mathematics is fun, stimulating and intellectually challenging.
