Further Maths at Stantonbury Campus

Course description

Further Mathematics can only be taken in conjunction with studying A Level Mathematics. The course is modular with modules taken in Pure Mathematics, Statistics, Decision Mathematics and Mechanics. To study Further Mathematics, students need to select Mathematics from either Column C or Column D and at their application meeting make it known that they wish to undertake Further Mathematics. A Mathematics A Level can lead to a career in science, mathematics or an IT or business related field, either by progressing to a Mathematics degree or in combination with other subjects. It is useful for all scientists, engineers, economists, accountants and those in the IT field, since success in Mathematics at A Level indicates the ability to think logically under pressure. It can also be accepted as one of the requirements for medical courses. Further Mathematics is an excellent A Level for students considering studying Mathematics at university, although not a requirement at all universities. The course is assessed by examinations which are externally marked. Students sit six modules at the end of Year 12 which make up the A level in Mathematics followed by a further six modules in Year 13 which make up the A Level in Further Mathematics. In addition to traditional lessons students will have the opportunity to attend suitable subject related lectures and make use of the school's IT facilities to explore concepts further.

Assessment
