Mathematics A Level at Feversham College

Course description

A-Level Maths provides students with a thorough grounding in the mathematical tools and techniques often needed in the workplace. The logic and reasoning skills developed by studying AS and A2 Maths make sure the qualification is widely respected even in non-mathematical arenas. Mathematics has always been the language of science and technology. As our society becomes increasingly technological it becomes increasingly important to be able to speak and reason in that language. Those who are able to do this find themselves very attractive employees.
