# A Level Mathematics at Chiltern Hills Academy

## Course description

**Year 1 AS Level **

The course consists of three branches of Mathematics that are examined via separate one and a half hour examinations.

C1 Core Mathematics Algebra and functions, coordinate geometry in the (x,y) plane, sequences and series, differentiation, integration

C2 Core Mathematics Algebra and functions, coordinate geometry in the (x,y) plane, sequence and series, trigonometry, exponentials and logarithms, differentiation, integration

D1 Decision Maths Algorithms are used to solve problems such as Shortest Route, Critical Path, and Chinese Postman. We learn the basis of graph theory and formulate and solve graphical representations of linear programming problems.

Year 2 A2 Level

The A2 course consists of three further modules, two of which can be determined according to the interests and abilities of the students.

C3 Core Mathematics Algebra and functions, trigonometry, exponentials and logarithms, differentiation, numerical methods.

C4 Algebra and functions Co-ordinate geometry in the x,y plane, sequences and series, functions differentiation, integration, vectors

M1 Mathematical models in mechanics

Vectors in mechanics, kinematics and dynamics of a particle moving in a straight line or plane, statics of a particle moments.
