Mathematics

A Level

A Level Maths provides students with a thorough grounding in the mathematical tools and techniques often needed in the workplace. The logic and reasoning skills developed by studying A Level Maths make sure the qualification is widely respected even in nonmathematical arenas. A Level Maths consists of a Pure Core unit which makes up one-third of the qualification and provides the techniques in Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry and Calculus that form the fundamental building blocks of the subject. In addition students will also follow units on Mechanics and Statistics.
