  • A Level

Overview

If you are already thinking about doing a degree either in Maths, or in a subject where there will be a high mathematical content (such as Engineering, some Science degrees) then you should be thinking about including Further Mathematics amongst your course choices to push your Mathematical ability to the best it can be.

Further Maths is becoming increasingly popular. This is because universities are including it more and more in the ‘must have done’ requirements for certain courses. The Further Maths course is structured, organised and taught in a very similar way to the Maths course at Wilberforce.

What will you learn?

Area 1. Further Pure Mathematics (e.g. Proof, Complex Numbers, Matrices, Further Algebra and Functions, Further Calculus, Hyperbolic Functions, Differential Equations, Trigonometry)

Area 2 and Area 3. These will be chosen from the following three applications:

• Mechanics (e.g. Dimensional Analysis, Momentum and Collisions, Work, Energy and Power, Circular Motion)

• Statistics (e.g. Discrete Random Variables, Poisson Distribution, Type I and II Errors, Chi Tests)

• Discrete (e.g. Graphs, Networks, Flows, Linear Programming, Critical Path Analysis, Game Theory)

This course must be studied alongside A Level Maths.

Who is the course aimed at?

This course is for you if you want to push your Mathematical ability to the best it can be! You should definitely take it if you are already thinking about doing a degree in Maths. Another reason to take it is that it helps you stand out from other students who are applying to the same courses as you at university.
