Mathematics AS/A Level at Castell Alun High School

Course description

Mathematics and mathematical skill underpin many of the functions of professional life.
The application of mathematics in science and engineering is obvious. Perhaps it is less obvious that a history student may eventually take a management science course requiring mathematical skill.
We offer a range of mathematics courses catering for a variety of needs.
Students should enjoy the power and beauty of Mathematics and hence enable them to think logically, imaginatively, and to become skilled exponents of Mathematics.
Students will need to be able to recall, select and use their knowledge of appropriate mathematical facts, concepts and techniques in a variety of contexts.
As well as being able to construct a proof through the appropriate use of precise, logical, clear statements, emphasis will be placed on your ability to evaluate and use mathematical models and communicate the results clearly.
A level Mathematics is a very demanding course and those embarking on it should be prepared to invest a substantial amount of time and effort outside of lessons. The natural sciences and social sciences are the conventional companions to mathematics. However, it can be combined with other subjects.
