A-Level Further Mathematics

A Level Further Mathematics

Specification: OCR MEI

Method of Assessment:

All students are required to have a calculator recommended by QCA. A graphics calculator can be an advantage in some of the modules.

 

 

 

Course Overview:

In Pure Mathematics students will extend their knowledge of GCSE topics such as Algebra and Trigonometry as well as learning new topics such as Calculus. Pure mathematics includes proof, algebra, graphs, sequences, trigonometry, logarithms, calculus and vectors.

In Mechanics students will learn how to describe mathematically the motion of objects and how they respond to forces acting upon them. Much of the Mechanics in A Level Maths crosses over with A Level Physics.

In Statistics students will learn a range of methods aimed at sampling, representing and interpreting sets of data.  Students will also study Probability and Hypothesis Testing. The new A Level specification also requires students to work with and manipulate a large data set using technology.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Units Studied:

 

All students are required to study the following:

  1. Core Pure Mathematics
  2. Mechanics Major or Statistics Major
  3. Either: Mechanics Minor, Statistics Minor, Modelling with Algorithms, Numerical Methods, Extra Pure or Further Pure with Technology.

Unlike the old A level system, students will sit their examinations at the end of Year 13 and will be required to combine skills from all aspects above.

Students will be provided with the opportunity to pick their preferred modules. However, availability will be dependent on teaching.

Entry Requirements:

Students require a minimum of 7 GCSE’s at grade 5 or above or equivalent, including English (Literature or Language) and Mathematics, with a grade 8 in Mathematics, Students below a grade 8 in Mathematics will not be allowed to study A Level Further Mathematics.
