Mathematics AS/A Level at Godalming College

Course description

In the first year of this course you will study three units, two focusing on pure maths, and one on statistics, mechanics or decision maths. The pure maths extends the GCSE work on algebra, co-ordinate geometry and trigonometry and introduces you to the concept of calculus. Mechanics and statistics both involve the modelling of real world situations using appropriate mathematics; mechanics relating to the physical world and statistics to the presentation and handling of data. Decision maths involves applied problem solving using algorithms of the sort computers might use.

During the second year you will study two more modules of pure maths, with further study of calculus. You will also take another applied unit.

Course assessment: Each unit is assessed by written exam.
