Further Mathematics A Level at Carre's Grammar School

Course description

The A level course is structured similarly to A Level Mathematics - Further Pure Mathematics, Further Mechanics and Further Statistics as well as the introduction of some “Discrete Mathematics”.

• Further Pure Mathematics In Further Pure Mathematics students extend and deepen their knowledge of proof, algebra, function, calculus and vectors studied in A Level Mathematics. They will also broaden their knowledge into new areas of study such as matrices, polar coordinates and complex numbers.

• Further Statistics In Further Statistics students explore in greater detail the content of A Level Mathematics but also extend their skills into new areas such as regression and Chi squared tests.

• Further Mechanics In Further Mechanics students develop further their understanding of kinematics, dynamics and statics from A Level Mathematics whilst also learning new topics such as impulse, momentum, work, energy and power.

• Discrete/Decision Mathematics Decision/Discrete Mathematics is a branch of mathematics which looks at modelling real life situations using graph theory and algorithms. Topics such as linear programming, route inspection and critical path analysis are explored in detail.

Entry requirements

The minimum entry requirements for level 3 academic study apply. In addition, a Grade 7+ in GCSE Mathematics is required.


You will be assessed internally throughout the course to check that you are on track. The course is formally assessed through three examination papers that will be sat at the end of year 13.
