After The Course
A Level Maths provides links with real-world applications and encourages the development of your employability skills such as clear communication, problem solving, critical and analytical skills, time management and working under pressure. The ability to think mathematically and to use mathematical problem solving skills is a great advantage in many university courses and careers. Mathematics at advanced level is highly regarded and provides you with a very transferable qualification for future study or employment.
What Will I Learn
The majority of the A Level Maths course is pure mathematics including: algebra, graphs, functions and transformations, binomial expansion, trigonometry, logs and exponentials, differentiation, integration, parametric equations, numerical methods and vectors. You will also study statistics including data gathering, analysis and presentation, probability, binomial and normal distributions, correlation, linear regression and hypothesis testing. The mechanics component of the course includes kinematics and constant acceleration (suvat equations), forces, Newton's laws, vectors, friction, moments, variable acceleration and projectiles.
The course is taught by well qualified and experienced lectures who are dedicated to ensuring student success through effective curriculum delivery and high-quality pastoral support. The team includes staff with relevant sector expertise.
Teaching Learning and Assessment
Variety of delivery methods including classroom activities, professional discussions, digitally-enabled activity, presentations and directed study.
