Further Mathematics at Royal Wootton Bassett Academy

Course description

A-level Further Mathematics is designed to broaden and deepen the mathematical knowledge and skills developed when studying A-level Mathematics and is perfect for those with a strong interest and enjoyment of the subject. The Further pure units build upon the techniques in Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry and Calculus developed from the Pure Core units as well as introducing topics such as complex numbers, matrices, proof, hyperbolic functions, polar coordinates and differential equations.

Throughout the AS and A-level Further Mathematics programme, students are encouraged to think logically, practically and analytically. These fundamental Maths skills are useful across all kinds of disciplines and careers.

Studying both A-level Mathematics and A-level Further Mathematics provides an excellent foundation for further studies in any Science or Maths-based course ranging from Computer Science, Physics, Medical Sciences, and Psychology to Statistics, Management and Actuarial Science.

Career opportunities for students who study A-level Further Mathematics include: computer science, industry, accountancy finance, economics, insurance, healthcare, medicine, veterinary science and engineering.
