Mathematics and Further Mathematics A Level at St Edmund Campion Catholic School

Course description

To study Mathematics is to study the language of our Universe. Without the Mathematical laws that bind us together our Universe and our existence within it would not be possible. To quote the Greek Mathematician Euclid: ‘The Laws of Nature are but the mathematical thoughts of God.’ Do you have what it takes to begin to understand?

A Levels in Mathematics and Further Mathematics are hugely versatile qualifications which are highly respected by employers and Higher Education institutions. Careers for those with good Mathematics skills and qualifications are not only well paid but are also often interesting and rewarding. There is a huge demand from employers, particularly in science, engineering, business and manufacturing, for students with the higher order skills to think logically, analytically and critically. An A Level in Mathematics demonstrates an aptitude in such skills. Through the solving of complex problems, you will develop resilience and an ability to think creatively and strategically. The writing of structured solutions, proof and justification of results will help you to not only formulate reasoned arguments but also important to demonstrate advanced numeracy skills and the ability to process and interpret data. Many courses at the university require robust, strong Mathematical skills.
