Mathematics AS & A Level at Queen Elizabeth's School

Course description

AS and A2 Mathematics are popular courses. Students will be expected to engage in discussions, group work, note taking and independent practice. Success in this course depends as much on hard work as ability and a high degree of self-motivation is required.

Course content

The AS course consists of three modules: C1, C2 and S1.

C1 and C2 cover Core Mathematics. They include topics such as algebra, trigonometry and calculus. S1 is a Statistics module, covering different techniques for analysing data.

Students continuing to A2 will study three more modules: C3, C4 and M1. C3 and C4 extend the Core Mathematics introduced at AS level. M1 is a Mechanics module covering the Mathematics of forces and motion
