A Level Further Maths at Seaford Head School and 6th form centre

Course description

Further Mathematics allows you study a wider range of topics in mathematics, which will help you for further study of mathematics at university. Topics studied include
matrices and complex numbers which are particularly useful for programming and engineering related degrees.


Course content

Further Mathematics is an additional A-Level qualification in mathematics which deepens your understanding of mathematics by allowing you to study a wider range of topics.  As well as doing your three A-Level Modules in Year 12 you study three additional modules over the first year.      

The course is done through regular online seminars through the Further Mathematics Support Programme. Students are required to ‘attend’ regular online interactive lectures and complete homework assignments which are emailed to their Tutors. This is supervised within the school and we are available to help students.

Rob Dymott—S6H Student

“The subject builds on what you learn in Core Maths and includes more complex, applicable concepts (especially in mechanics). Further Maths is an undoubtedly challenging subject, but highly respected and equally rewarding”.
