Further Mathematics AS level at Edmonton County School

Course description

Further Mathematics is a much valued subject. If you are considering a career or further study in Mathematics, ICT, Accountancy, Engineering, Economics and the Sciences you should seriously consider studying Further Maths in addition to the AS Maths course.

Course content

You will study many of the concepts learnt at GCSE, but at a much higher and advanced level, as well as many new areas of Mathematics. This course is taught in conjunction with the AS Mathematics course, and will challenge and stretch even the most able of mathematicians. In addition to the units taught in the AS Mathematics course, students will study a range of units focusing on advanced Statistics and Mechanics and Decision Mathematics. The course is designed to enable students to develop mathematical understanding; to reason logically; to generalise and construct proofs; to recognise how different areas of mathematics are connected; to apply mathematics and recognise its significance to other disciplines, and to model ‘real world’ problems.

Entry requirements

An A* Grade in the GCSE Higher Tier Mathematics examination.

Assessment

Three further units will be examined in addition to those examined as part of the AS Mathematics course.

Future opportunities

Successful completion of this course will enable progression onto both further and higher education, a Modern Apprenticeship or employment in a range of industries.
