    A Level Mathematics

Introduction

The linear A Level course from Edexcel covers pure and applied mathematics in the ratio 2:1. Mathematics students will cover pure maths topics such as: algebra; geometry and calculus. Applied topics include compulsory statistics and mechanics. Many topics will require students to apply their knowledge to solving real world problems such as modelling a bridge as a quadratic equation or finding the minimum amount of material needed to create the largest volume container.

Note that students with a particular interest in maths (especially those who may want to go on to study maths at university) should also seriously consider taking A Level Further Mathematics.

Entry Requirements

GCSE grade 6 in Mathematics is required for A Level Mathematics.

Curriculum Overview & Exam Information

We have included curriculum overviews as well as exam information to support students and parents/carers to have a better and broader understanding of how learning develops in each year group. The curriculum overview documents below indicate: the knowledge, skills and understanding that students will gain, how this unit builds on prior learning, and what mastery will look like for each year group. This year, we have added a catch up summary at the beginning to outline how we will catch up on lost learning during school closure. The red writing also indicates where the curriculum has been changed this academic year to support student catch up.
