Further Maths students begin to appreciate the connection between different branches of Mathematics and put forth rigorous mathematical arguments using formal proof. They continue to develop their core skills, with a wider range of strategies and techniques, whilst broadening and deepening their applications to real life situations.
We use a variety of approaches: teacher led explanations, modelling good practice, questioning, individual work, interactive games and peer demonstrations.
The topics covered in further mathematics build on those covered in A-level mathematics. Students will study further pure topics and develop their understanding of statistics and mechanics further
Both Mathematics and Engineering courses at university value Further Maths A-level very highly and it gives students a head start to their undergraduate studies.
Students are provided with information about a wide range of off-site enrichment opportunities and encouraged to participate in these to enhance their CV.
