    A Level Further Mathematics

Introduction

Students with a particular interest in mathematics can choose to take a second A Level in Maths called Further Maths, with some choosing this as a fourth A Level. Further Mathematicians, as well as learning additional compulsory topics in pure maths such as complex numbers and proof by induction get a choice of studying further statistics, mechanics or decision maths. Many topics will require students to apply their knowledge to solving real world problems such modelling the motion of a diving board as a second order differential equation.

Students who do not need a full A Level in Further Maths but are interested in going beyond A Level Maths can follow the course for the first year in order to obtain an AS qualification in the subject.

Entry Requirements

GCSE grade 8 is required for Further Mathematics. Note that students opting to take Further Mathematics must also take A Level Mathematics as a separate option.
