Further Mathematics – AS / A Level at St Alban's Catholic High School
For those students with a deeper interest in mathematics, Further Mathematics A
Level is a course that broadens the maths covered in A Level Mathematics. It develops
mathematical ability and problem solving skills whilst introducing new topics, such as
matrices and complex numbers, which are vital for maths-rich degrees in areas such as
sciences, engineering, statistics and computing, as well as mathematics itself. A Level
Further Mathematics is studied alongside the A Level Mathematics course and will help
to boost performance in Mathematics.
Studying Further Mathematics gives students applying for maths-rich courses an
advantage and provides excellent preparation for courses in Mathematics, Engineering
and Theoretical Physics, in addition to other higher education courses. In fact some
prestigious university degrees courses now require a Further Mathematics qualification
to at least AS Level.
Mathematicians, in an ever more technological world, have the ability to analyse, abstract
and model situations and studying Further Mathematics is therefore seen as a real asset
for a range of career choices.
