Mathematics A Level at Mill Hill County High School

Course description

This is a modular course in which a combination of six units leads to an A Level, and three units to an AS Level. The AS award will be based on three units taken in year 12 and a further three units can be added in year 13 to qualify for the A level award.

The combination of six units will lead to the following certification titles:

A Level Mathematics                    Year 12:
                                                    Two Core Mathematics units (C1 and C2) & one Statistics unit (S1)

                                                    Year 13:
                                                    Two Core Mathematics units (C3 and C4) & one Mechanics unit (M1)

A Level Further Mathematics       Year 12:
                                                    Units covered and assessed C1, C2, FP1, S1, S2, M1, M2

                                                    Year 13:
                                                    Units covered and assessed C3, C4, FP2, D1 and S3.

Students at Mill Hill County High can therefore take either 'single' A Level Mathematics or 'double' Mathematics (A Level Mathematics and A Level Further Mathematics)

The subject covers the following subject Core laid down by The Qualifications and Curriculum Authority (QCA) which:

(i)         Enables students to acquire knowledge and skills with confidence, satisfaction and enjoyment.
(ii)        Gives students experience of mathematical activity and develop resourcefulness in solving problems.
(iii)       Enables students to apply mathematics and recognise its significance to other disciplines.
(iv)        Develops students’ understanding of mathematical reasoning.
(v)         Provides students with a foundation for the further study of mathematics.

Course content

During the study of Mathematics AS/A level students will be expected to:

  • Consolidate each topic as it is completed in class.
