Do you love the challenge of solving problems with numbers? Are you thinking of working in engineering or science? Do you want a better choice of career?
Maths is the purest science, providing support for Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Geography, Psychology, Sociology, Computing, Business Studies and Engineering courses.
You will build on your existing knowledge of Algebra and Trigonometry and learn new skills in the study of Calculus, and you will develop your problem-solving skills.
Maths is one of the most useful courses to study, because most jobs and university courses involve Maths in some way. Employers and university lecturers know that you will have the ability to look at problems and challenges and find solutions.
What will you learn?
1. Pure Mathematics (e.g. Proof, Algebra and Functions, Trigonometry, Differentiation, Integration)
2. Mechanics (e.g. Vectors, Kinematics, Forces and Newton’s Laws, Moments)
3. Statistics (e.g. Statistical Sampling, Data Presentation and Interpretation, Probability)
You will build on your existing knowledge of algebra and trigonometry and learn new skills in the study of calculus, and you will develop your problem-solving skills.
