Further Mathematics A Level at Beechen Cliff School

Course description

Further Mathematics is excellent preparation for mathematics based degree subjects, such as Mathematics, Physics, Engineering and Economics etc. Further Mathematics students complete the whole A’Level Mathematics course in a single year. During Upper Sixth students embark on Further Mathematics A’Level. In order to have the teaching time to cover a whole A’Level in a year, students who choose Further Mathematics fill TWO of their option blocks to account for the extra lessons. There is no need to opt for A’Level Mathematics as an additional subject.

Course content

Awarding body: Edexcel (2017) – to be confirmed See the previous page (Mathematics) for information about the work covered in Lower Sixth. The topics listed below are covered in Upper Sixth. Half of the content covered is compulsory

Further Pure Topics (compulsory)

Proof, complex numbers, matrices, further algebra and functions, further calculus, further vectors, polar coordinates, hyperbolic functions, differential equations Then two options are studied from Further Pure, Further Statistics and Further Mechanics

Further information

Many students studying Further Mathematics will be considering University course that are “Mathematics Heavy” (eg Mathematics, Physics, Engineering, Computer Science), so it goes especially well with Physics and Computer Science.
