Further Mathematics A-Level at Kendrick Academy
Further Mathematics is a course suitable for students who would like to study a wider range of Mathematical topics than those available in Mathematics A-level, and who wish to gain a greater depth of understanding of many aspects of Mathematics.
Within the Further Mathematics course you will have some choice of which aspects of mathematics to study. Initially you will all study complex numbers, matrices, series, various methods for numerical solutions to equations, and mathematical proof, including proof by induction. You will then move on to a unit where you study more aspects of complex numbers, inequalities, polar coordinates, the solution of first and second order differential equations and Taylor and Maclaurin’s expansions.
All Further Mathematicians will also study one unit of Decision Maths, which includes algorithms on graphs, the route inspection problem, critical path analysis, linear programming and matchings. You may opt to study a mechanics unit, including work on simple harmonic motion, oscillations, circular motion and centres of gravity.
You may also opt to study another pure mathematics unit, including the hyperbolic functions, coordinate systems, more calculus and more work on vectors and matrices.
To study Further Mathematics you will also need to study Mathematics, so Mathematics and Further Mathematics will be two of your subject choices.
Studying Further Mathematics encourages the development of a thorough and deep understanding of mathematical processes, concepts and methods. It provides an excellent basis for the study of many mathematically based courses at University, and is particularly appropriate for those wishing to study Mathematics, Physics, Engineering or Economics at a prestigious university.
