The course aims to give a good introduction to all the main areas of mathematics. C1, C2 - covers Pure Mathematics the fundamental concepts and skills required to solve problems from a mathematical stand point. C1 covers many of the A & A* topics covered in GCSE but to much greater depth. Core 1 is examined in January. Students then follow two modules: Core Mathematics 2 (C2) and Statistics (S1) and study techniques for analysing data and drawing conclusions from the data. These modules run until May/June.
Year 13:
Year 13 begins once the AS modules have been examined. Students follow Core 3 and Core 4, and either Mechanics 1 or Decision 1, depending on the strengths and needs of the group.
To ensure a thorough understanding of the concepts, homework tasks are set on a weekly basis and a commitment to continual hard work is essential for success on this course.
