# Mathematics A Level at Adeyfield School

## Course description

- To further develop an understanding of mathematics and mathematical processes.
- To develop the ability to reason logically, recognise incorrect reasoning, generalise and construct mathematical proofs.
- To extend mathematical skills and techniques and use these in more difficult and unstructured problems.
- To develop connections between different areas of mathematics
- To recognise how a situation maybe represented mathematically and understand the relationship between "real-world" problems and mathematical models.
- To further develop skills needed to use technology including calculators and computers
- To develop an awareness of the relevance of mathematics to other fields of study, to the world of work and to society in general
- For students take increasing responsibility for their own learning and the evaluation of their own mathematical development.
