AS/A2 Mathematics at Trinity Sixth Form Consortium

Course description

Pure Mathematics

This extends the Algebra and Trigonometry elements from GCSE to a higher level of understanding that enables problems to be solved especially in Mechanics and Statistics.

Mechanics

This enables you to describe mathematically the motion of object and how they respond to forces acting upon them. Many of the ideas that you will meet form an essential introduction to engineering and physics.

Statistics

This enables you to analyse and summarise numerical data in order to arrive at meaningful conclusions. You will extend the range of probability concepts from GSCE. Many of the topics have wider applications in Biology and Geography for the recording of experiments.

Decision

This area of mathematics develops problem solving and applies mathematical models to solve real world problems.

 

Course content

The course that we follow is EDEXCEL and we use the text books that follow the course.

Lessons go through examples as well as opportunities for lots of discussion with the teacher and with other pupils in the room.

 

Entry requirements

Grade A pass in Mathematics at GCSE

 

Assessment

AS level Maths requires 3 modules, usually C1, C2 and then either S1 or M1 or D1

A2 level Maths requires another 3 modules which are usually C3, C4 and whichever of the applied modules that gives the best route to the best grade.

All examinations are 90 mins in length

 

Future opportunities

An A Level in Mathematics is a much sought after qualification for entry into a wide variety of full time course at Higher Education. The door is open to any career with A level Maths but it’s a key subject for careers in Economics, Accountancy, Architecture, Engineering, Medicine, Teaching, Psychology, Environmental Studies, Computing, IT, Banking, Insurance, Financial Advice, Investments and many more.
