Further Mathematics A Level at Hutton Church of England Grammar School
Students who are especially keen on Mathematics will really enjoy the A Level in Further Mathematics. It is a challenging qualification which extends and deepens students’ knowledge and understanding beyond the standard A Level Mathematics course. It is most suitable for students who are highly motivated, have a genuine interest in Mathematics and who wish to read Mathematics or mathematically orientated degree subjects, such as Physics, at university.
Further Mathematics is taught as a 2 year course and in addition to the three A Level papers you will take 3 papers for Further Mathematics, each of 2 hours. You will study Pure Mathematics along with 2 optional components from Statistics, Mechanics and Discrete Mathematics. The Pure topics include proof, complex numbers, matrices, vectors, polar coordinates, hyperbolic functions, differential equations, trigonometry, calculus and numerical methods. Classes are usually very small allowing students to have access to a lot of individual support from staff.
Further Mathematics qualifications are prestigious and are strongly welcomed by universities. Students who take Further Mathematics are really demonstrating a strong commitment to their studies. They are learning concepts that are very useful for any maths-rich degree such as Engineering, Sciences, Computing or Technology as well as Mathematics itself. Whilst many courses do not specify Further Mathematics explicitly, students with Further Mathematics qualifications are strongly welcomed on any maths-related course and often receive preferential offers because of this.
