Mathematics A Level at The Hazeley Academy
The Mathematics course is split into two elements; Core and Applied Mathematics. The compulsory core modules develop your algebraic skills; consolidating and extending work with quadratic equations and higher order polynomials, extending work with sequences and graphs, expanding uses of trigonometry and introducing calculus techniques. The optional applied modules oﬀer a variety of practical applications of Mathematics. The Statistics modules explore data manipulation and interpretation; calculating measures of average and dispersion, quantifying correlation, working with probabilities and introducing probability distributions.
Students should have a minimum grade of an A in GCSE Mathematics.
Students will sit Maths as an AS and an A2 with public exams at the end of both year 12 and 13.
Due to the content of the course, Mathematics is a good accompaniment to AS/A Levels in Physics, Chemistry, Psychology, ICT and Geography. The statistical techniques are used to evaluate data collected during Biology, Psychology and Geography field work. The algebraic work, which is the basis of the Core modules, is fundamental in the analysis of Chemical structures. Logarithms are used in modelling behaviour and populations in Physics, Biology and Geography.
Mathematics A Level is usually a prerequisite for degree courses including: Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Economics, Pharmacology, Engineering, Computer Science, Medicine, Psychology and Optometry.
