A level Mathematics is taught mainly by exposition by the teacher, although students will be expected to contribute to class discussions of new topics. A significant part of the course will be in keeping up with the home learning tasks, normally set after each lesson. Much of the course involves problem-solving and students will need to demonstrate perseverance in order to succeed.
