Want to take Mathematics, Engineering, the sciences or economics at degree level? This course puts you ahead of the rest! Delve deeper into Maths concepts & solve problems that you didn’t know existed.
The qualification is both deeper and broader than A level mathematics. As well as building on algebra and calculus introduced in A level mathematics, the A level further mathematics core content introduces complex numbers and matrices, fundamental mathematical ideas with wide applications in mathematics, engineering, physical sciences and computing. The non-core content includes different options that can enable students to specialise in areas of mathematics that are particularly relevant to their interests and future aspirations.
Year 2 A level Further Maths builds on mathematics core maths studied in year 1 and continues to develop ideas around calculus, complex numbers and a variety of functions. The non-core content again includes different options to build on some of the applied areas of mathematics.
Further Maths A level could lead to degrees in Mathematics, physics, computing, engineering and prepares students for further employment in highly mathematical disciplines.
