- A level (Pearson)
- 2 years
Mathematics is a challenging, rewarding and surprisingly creative subject. During this course, you will learn to problem solve, particularly algebraically. There will be a great deal of abstract questions - you may make a slide rule, learn about gambling techniques – or perhaps become interested in codes.
Maths is a skill that is learnt through practice – so we will use a variety of approaches to help you develop your problem-solving skills and appreciate the power of mathematical thinking.
Many of the trigonometric and calculus methods taught will stretch and challenge you; but there’s a reason why universities continue to acknowledge Mathematics as one of the most sought after A levels.
The majority of your work will be classroom-based, but you will also have a number of trips and opportunities to socialise with your like-minded peers. Projects are approached individually and in groups, and we will support you to make a thought-provoking presentation at the end of Year 2.
This subject is for you:
if you enjoy problem-solving and the successes that come with it. You will be excited by being set an abstract problem and being able to unravel it, and will have an aptitude for numbers, algebra and being challenged at a high level.
