Mathematics at Earl Mortimer College and Sixth Form Centre
The main reason for studying mathematics to an advanced level is that it is interesting and enjoyable. People like its challenge, its clarity, and the fact that you know when you are right. The solution of a problem has an excitement and a satisfaction. You will find all these aspects in A Level Mathematics.
You should also be aware of the wide importance of Mathematics, and the way in which it is advancing at a spectacular rate. Mathematics is about pattern and structure; it is about logical analysis, deduction, calculation within these patterns and structures. When patterns are found, often in widely different areas of science and technology, the mathematics of these patterns can be used to explain and control natural happenings and situations. Mathematics has a pervasive influence on our everyday lives, and contributes to the wealth of the country.
What does the course involve?
To succeed at AS or A level Mathematics you need to be a good Mathematician and, most importantly, you need to work hard. You will find that the course builds on your success at GCSE but also introduces you to entirely new areas of Mathematics.
It is recommended that you have achieved at least a grade A on the Higher tier GCSE examination, although we will consider a grade B with a STRONG teacher recommendation.
