Mathematics A Level at St Mary's Menston, a Catholic voluntary academy

Course description

The study of mathematics at AS/A2 level encourages students to develop their understanding of mathematics and mathematical processes in a way that promotes confidence and enjoyment. It enables students to develop abilities to reason logically, to generalise and construct mathematical proofs. It also enables students to extend their range of mathematical skills and techniques and develop an understanding of how different areas of mathematics can be connected.

The specification also enables students to recognise how a situation may be represented mathematically and understand the relationship between 'real world' problems and mathematical models and how these can be refined and improved.

Mathematics will appeal to those students looking for an intellectual challenge and those students who wish to progress in mathematics to an advanced level. Mathematics is a valuable subject for those students studying science, social science (geography, psychology, economics and sociology) and for those choosing courses with a level of mathematical content beyond A level.
