MATHEMATICS at Trinity Catholic School

Course description

Mathematics AS/A Level Mathematics in the Sixth Form can be combined successfully with a variety of subjects. Whilst being of obvious use to the scientist, it adds an extra dimension and ways of studying for others. The A level course is a challenging and accessible course which develops ability and confidence in mathematics and its application together with an appreciation of how mathematical ideas help in the understanding of the world and society in which we live. Students will take the Statistics 1 (Year 12) and Mechanics 1 (Year 13) units alongside the four compulsory Pure Core mathematics units.


Course content

Further Maths AS/A Levels are available for those students who wish to extend their knowledge of even more advanced maths, perhaps with a view to studying a maths-related degree at university. Modules covered include Decision and further Statistics/Mechanics alongside the Further Pure core units.


The main principals of the course are that students are actively involved in developing mathematical ideas and appropriate use is made of technological advances.
