Mathematics - AS Level at RR6 Wimbledon

Course description

Why study Maths? Mathematical skills are invaluable in the modern world and are increasingly sought-after. As one of RR6’s specialisms we have a strong maths department and specialist maths teachers. Maths at AS and A2 level is interesting and challenging. It builds on work topics studied at GCSE and uses mathematical skills to solve every day and more complex problems using logic, proof and analysis. These skills will be particularly useful for those interested in the fields of commerce, business and even journalism. What topics will I study? Over the two years you will study the Maths pure core modules one and two in the first year and three and four in the second year, with a choice of two further modules from either Statistics or Mechanics. Further Maths is an option available in Year 13. How will I be assessed? A Level Maths is modular with examinations in January and May/June. You will take three units at AS and a further three at A2. Each unit is tested by a written examination and the units are equally weighted. An example/illustration of the type of work involved: Pure Maths includes algebra, trigonometry, calculus, co-ordinate geometry and series. Statistics includes probability, correlation and regression, measures of location and dispersion and normal distribution. Mechanics includes vectors, kinematics, statics, dynamics and movements of a particle.
