Further Mathematics - A Level at Heart of England Sixth Form
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?
Students must choose both Maths and Further Maths on the option blocks.
Grade 7 in GCSE Mathematics and a Pass in the Maths Entry Test.
A level Further Mathematics has a strong core of algebra, which can present a significant challenge. Students must be familiar with all the techniques taught at GCSE and show an aptitude for understanding the more abstract concepts taught at grades 8 and 9 at GCSE.
