Further Mathematics A Level at Woolwich Polytechnic School for Boys

Course description

We focus on developing students as independent learners; working on their ability to analyse and solve problems.

In further maths they have disciplined themselves to at least 8 hours a week outside of lesson.

They are exposed to more applied modules which mean they can now appreciate the application of their maths in the real world.

Students will now have experienced all branches of maths, and will be in a position to decide in which career/course they would like to become specialised.

After completion of the course they will be extremely well prepared to complete a maths/mathematically based degree.
