Mathematics at UTC Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park

Course description

Why Study Mathematics?

Mathematics at this level consists of the study of Pure Mathematics and the study of the application of mathematics to the physical world such as Mechanics and Statistics.

Maths is a ‘facilitating’ subject, which means that it will support the study of many other subjects including Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Computing, and Psychology.  It will also support progression to many competitive careers.
