Mathematics A Level at Cotswold Edge Sixth Form

Course description

In pure mathematics students study a wide range of techniques such as calculus and trigonometry which are powerful tools for solving problems. The applications units allow the student to apply techniques to real life problems using a modelling approach; this is done through studying force and motion in mechanics and through data analysis in statistics. Mathematics is fun, stimulating and intellectually challenging. Each unit is assessed by a written end of module examination.

AS mechanics and A2 statistics may include an extended piece of work that involves data collection and analysis. You will need to discuss any problems or misunderstandings about the work with your class teacher and there are usually revision sessions provided either after school or during holidays. A graphics calculator is required for the course.
