Further Mathematics leads to two A Levels in Mathematics. It includes a number of additional topics, including Discrete. It raises students’ awareness of different aspects of Mathematics in preparation for university.
Some students decide during their first year at College that they are interested in a Mathematics or a related degree course. They may then have the opportunity to add AS Further Mathematics to their 2nd year programme to enhance their application to university.
What goes well with this course?
Mathematics goes well with every subject and it is probably the most marketable of all subjects. There are good economic reasons for studying Mathematics and it is difficult to think of any further education course or career where it would not be welcomed in combination with other subjects.
A Level Further Mathematics is welcomed as a qualification for a variety of Higher Education courses.
A Further Mathematics qualification is required for some subjects, such as Mathematics, Engineering and Physics, and useful for others, such as Biochemistry and Economics.
Many Mathematics graduates go on to work in Accountancy, Computing, Engineering, Management or Teaching.
Further Mathematics develops the ideas covered in A Level Mathematics but in greater depth. The course covers Pure Mathematics, Mechanics, Statistics and Discrete.
Pure Mathematics develops the ideas met at GCSE, such as: Algebra, Graphs, and Trigonometry. Discrete Mathematics develops the ideas used in modern technology. Statistics is the study of data. Mechanics is the study of moving objects.
Course Specific Trips, Visits & Experiences
Further Mathematics students have the opportunity to take part in a variety of course related experiences. In recent years, these have included:
- the opportunity to participate in the UKMT Senior Maths Challenge
- a visit to the Institute of Education in London to attend a variety of lectures on Mathematics
There is no coursework, this subject is 100% exam.
The exam board for this AS/A Level is AQA.
