Mathematics

A level

Maths is excellent training for the mind requiring precise and accurate work, clear logical thought and problem-solving skills. You will be set some summer work to brush up on your algebra skills with indices, surds and quadratic equations. We will then start lessons with a harder topic that will be new to you. You will also learn some effective study skills.

Course Content

 

 

Year 1

You will study the following topics from Pure Maths: proof, algebra, graphs, Binomial expansions, trigonometry, logarithms, calculus (differentiation and integration) and vectors. You will additionally study topics from both Statistics and Mechanics; including kinematics working with forces and Newton’s laws.

Year 2

You will study the following topics from Pure Maths: proof, algebra, graphs, sequences,
trigonometry, logarithms, advanced calculus and vectors. You will also continue the study of Statistics, looking at conditional probability and the Normal distribution as well as some further statistical hypothesis testing. In Mechanics, we study moments, modelling with forces and friction, projectiles and more advanced kinematics (with variable acceleration which involves the use of calculus).
