### MATHEMATICS AS / A LEVEL

**Exam Board:** Edexcel

**Entry Requirements: **7+ in Maths. 6 will be accepted where students are able to complete transition material

**Course Description:**

### The course has been reformed and composes of two-thirds Pure Mathematics, and one-third covers Mechanics and Statistics.

**Year 12**

### Pure Mathematics: Algebra, Series, Graphs, Trigonometry, Calculus, Coordinate Geometry, Radian Measure and Logarithms

### Mechanics:** **Kinematics and Dynamics of a Moving Particle, Equilibrium, Uniform Motion, Momentum and Friction

### Statistics:** **Modelling, Representations of Data, Correlation, Regression, Discrete Random Variables, Probability, Normal Distribution

### Students will be assessed at the end of Year 12 through the AS Level examination, and so will sit a 2h Pure Mathematics exam and a 1h exam covering both Mechanics and Statistics.

**Year 13 **

### Pure Mathematics: Algebra, Functions, Exponentials, Graphs, Trigonometry, Calculus, Parametric Equations and Vectors

### Mechanics: Vectors, Equilibrium, Uniform Motion, Work, Energy, Power, Momentum, Centres of Gravity and Friction

### Statistics: Binomial & Poisson Distributions, Continuous Random Variables, Continuous Distributions, Hypothesis Testing

### At the end of Year 13 students will sit two 2h Pure Mathematics exams, and a 2h exam in Mechanics and Statistics. All three A-Level exams will cover content from both Year 12 and Year 13.

### FURTHER MATHEMATICS AS / A LEVEL

**Entry Requirements: **8+ in Maths. 7 will be accepted where students are able to complete transition material

### This is a two-year course offering the chance to gain a highly prestigious A-Level. This course is only for the best Mathematics students who have proved their ability to handle abstract concepts in GCSE Mathematics.

### Further Mathematics is composed of four modules in the linear course. 50% of the course is the mandatory Pure content. There are then two other choices which could be Further Pure, Mechanics, Statistics and/or Decision Mathematics.

### MATHEMATICS IN CONTEXT AS

**Exam Board: ** Edexcel

**Entry Requirements: **5+ at GCSE Mathematics

**Course Description:**

### The course is broken down into four assessment objectives. Over the two years, these objectives are taught in different contexts.

### The course is relatively new and has been designed to support students interested in studying GCE A Level Biology, Business Studies, Economics, Computing, Geography, Psychology, Business and IT.

**Application of Statistics:** Moving Averages, Quartiles, Dependent & Independent Variables, Line of best fit, Spearman’s Rank, Product Moment Correlation Coefficient

**Probability: **Probability Distributions, Tree Diagrams, Venn Diagrams, Conditional Probability, Probability Notation

**Linear Programming: **Simultaneous Equations, Plotting Graphs, Sketching Graphs, Solving Equations, Solving Inequalities

**Sequences and Growth:** Compound Interest, Types of Graphs, Indices, Linear and Quadratic Sequences, Recurrence Relations, Arithmetic Series, Geometric Series

**Year 12**

The above assessment objectives are explored in Social Media, Society, Sport, Clothing Industry and Finance. At the end of Year 12, students complete a project utilising skills they have learnt throughout the first year of their course.

**Year 13 **

** **The above assessment objectives are explored in Creative Arts, Health, Economy, Travel, Environment, Disasters, Engineering.

### At the end of Year 13 students will sit two 1h40mins papers, which both allow the use a calculator. The first paper covers the comprehension aspect of the content students have learnt and this is worth 40% of their AS Level. The second paper covers the application aspect the content learnt and this is worth 60% of their AS Level.
