About Course

Mathematics at A Level allows students to develop many transferable skills which will be very useful for university and in future careers. The subject is highly regarded by universities and many courses require a student to have an A level in Maths. Students are able to go into many different sectors with an education background in Maths, some of these include; finance, computing, engineering, teaching, and lecturing.

Description

Mathematics A-Level challenges and enhances student’s intellect. Mathematics is an important subject to study as it proves to future employers that the individual is able to deal with many different types of calculations and figures. The course will teach students to think logically and gives students many transferable skills; these will prepare the students for further studying at university. Studying mathematics can also help students with other A Level courses such as Physics, Chemistry, Business Studies, Geography, and Economics. Mathematics links well with these subjects as they all require mathematical calculations to be carried out.

What Will I Learn?

  • Develop their understanding of mathematics and mathematical processes in a way that promotes confidence and fosters enjoyment
  • Develop abilities to reason logically and recognise incorrect reasoning, to generalise and to construct mathematical proofs
  • Extend their range of mathematical skills and techniques and use them in more difficult, unstructured problems
  • Develop an understanding of coherence and progression in mathematics and of how different areas of mathematics can be connected
  • Recognise how a situation may be represented mathematically and understand the relationship between ‘real-world’ problems and standard and other mathematical models and how these can be refined and improved
  • Use mathematics as an effective means of communication
  • Read and comprehend mathematical arguments and articles concerning applications of mathematics
  • Acquire the skills needed to use technology such as calculators and computers effectively, recognise when such use may be inappropriate, and be aware of limitations
  • Develop an awareness of the relevance of mathematics to other fields of study, to the world of work, and to society in general
  • Take increasing responsibility for their own learning and the evaluation of their own mathematical development.
