Mathematics A Level at Cleeve School

Course description

Mathematics A Level is an interesting, enjoyable and challenging course that enables students to study a wide range of topics across both core and applied modules. Many of the areas studied develop and deepen students’ understanding of work covered at GCSE Level, such as algebra and trigonometry. In addition there are also many new and important concepts, which form part of the course, including calculus and logarithms. One of the

key elements of the A Level course is providing students with the ability to use their mathematics and this is particularly developed through the study of the applied content which will include statistics and mechanics, both of which enable the application of mathematical techniques to many relevant stimulating problems.

As well as gaining knowledge and understanding of many areas of mathematics, students will develop excellent problem solving skills, as they are encouraged to tackle problems independently. The course provides a thorough and highly valued preparation for further study in mathematics and related subjects.
