Mathematics at Teign Academy

Course description

The AS and A2 courses will not only challenge students to develop number, algebraic and IT skills but will also require them to show a persistence and creativity in solving problems that arise in the real world. The Mathematics course has been running as a modular course for some time now and has a very successful track record. It offers a variety of mathematical experiences and gives students an element of choice. In Year 12 students will study Pure Mathematics and Statistics. In Year 13 students study two further Pure Mathematics modules choosing from either Mechanics or Statistics as the sixth module. All these modules are set at the end of year 12/13

Entry requirements

The entrance requirement is a grade B at GCSE

Future opportunities

Research has shown that employers and education institutions alike place great value on the many personal qualities that are developed in achieving success in the study of `A` Level Mathematics. A level Mathematics provides valuable support for a wide range of degree courses ranging from Analytical Reasoning and the linking of ideas, which are skills that support Law to the application of particular concepts in courses such as the Social Sciences, Accounting & Science.
