Further Mathematics A Level at John Cabot Academy

Course description

Want to take Mathematics, Engineering, the sciences or economics at degree level? This course puts you ahead of the rest! Delve deeper into Maths concepts & solve problems that you didn't know existed.

Course content

Year 1

The qualification is both deeper and broader than A level mathematics. AS and A level further mathematics build from GCSE level and AS and A level mathematics. As well as building on algebra and calculus introduced in A level mathematics, the A level further mathematics core content introduces complex numbers and matrices, fundamental mathematical ideas with wide applications in mathematics, engineering, physical sciences and computing. The non-core content includes different options that can enable students to specialise in areas of mathematics that are particularly relevant to their interests and future aspirations.

A level further mathematics prepares students for further study and employment in highly mathematical disciplines that require knowledge and understanding of sophisticated mathematical ideas and techniques.

All of the A level content will be examined at the end of the course.
