Further Mathematics - A Level at Heart of England Sixth Form

Course description

Further Mathematics A level extends your mathematical problem solving skills even further, covering topics that are in some cases entirely abstract such as imaginary numbers – what does happen when you square root a negative number? – and hyperbolic functions – what can you do with the trigonometric functions if you just change one little bit? Further Maths is a varied and interesting topic and for those with a particular aptitude for it, it can lead to some quite interesting discoveries, for example: Why does eiπ = -1?
