A Level Mathematics *Fees Payable* at Priory School
Teaching A/S and A level Mathematics involves a less formal
approach than GCSE inasmuch as the lessons would be less rigidly
structured, giving the students the opportunity to take on more
responsibility regarding their understanding of individual topics. This
would allow a mixture of formal work as well as their studying out of
lessons without formally set homework, although forms of assessment
would be necessary to monitor each individual’s progress. Success in
A Level Mathematics requires that each pupil be motivated towards
the subject, and not see it as just another qualification, otherwise the
subject will not yield its full benefits or be attended by success.
This specification is derived from the School Mathematics Project and
the AQA GCE Mathematics and Statistics Specification B.
It includes optional assessed coursework in a number of Statistics and
Mechanics units, but coursework is not a compulsory feature.
This specification is designed to encourage candidates to study
mathematics post-16. It enables a variety of teaching and learning
styles, and provides opportunities for students to develop and be
assessed in five of the six Key Skills.
The qualifications based on this specification are a recognised part of
the National Qualifications Framework. As such, AS and A Level
provide progression from Key Stage 4, through post-16 studies and
form the basis of entry to higher education or employment.
Mathematics is, inherently, a sequential subject. There is a
progression of material through all levels at which the subject is
studied. The Subject Criteria for Mathematics and therefore this
specification build on the knowledge, understanding and skills
established at GCSE Mathematics.
