Mathematics - AS / A Level at St Alban's Catholic High School
Mathematics is an exciting new world waiting to be explored. It is our aim to make
this journey as interesting and as varied as possible. Students will be taught to reason
logically, to generalise and to construct mathematical proofs. They will develop the ability
to recognise how situations can be represented mathematically and to understand the
relationship between ‘real world’ problems and possible mathematical models.
A Level Mathematics provides the skills and knowledge that underpin many scientific
subjects such as Physics and Chemistry and the statistical analysis used in Psychology,
Biology, Geography, Economics and Business Studies.
A good Mathematics A Level would provide the skills needed for any of the mathematical
based courses, apprenticeships or careers such as: Mathematics, Engineering, Finance,
Social Sciences, Computer Sciences, Operational Research. Mathematicians, in an ever
more technological world, have the ability to analyse, abstract and model situations and
studying Mathematics is therefore seen as a real asset for a wide range of career choices.
Mathematicians have an opportunity to make a lasting contribution to society by helping
to solve problems in such diverse fields as medicine, economics, computer science,
management, physics, astronomy, psychology, engineering and social science.
