Mathematics *FEES PAYABLE* at Hurstpierpoint College

Course description

There are four areas of Mathematics which may be studied as part of a Sixth Form course:

  • Pure Mathematics is mandatory and provides the methods which are required to solve problems considered from a practical context. Concepts and methods in Algebra and Trigonometry are developed further while Calculus and Coordinate Geometry are introduced. Techniques from Pure Mathematics apply not only to other areas of Mathematics but in certain other A level subjects such as Physics and Chemistry.
  • Statistics reviews various methods for the collection of data and considers how data may be summarised and represented graphically. Probability laws and the concept of a random variable are introduced.
  • Decision Mathematics considers applications of discrete mathematics to problems in a highly technological world and is closely related to some aspects of Computing.
  • Mechanics is a development of ideas familiar from Physics. The mathematical modelling of physical situations is considered with a view to solving the problems they pose. Newton's laws of motion are the central theme of an introductory course.
