Taking Mathematics to the next level, Further Mathematics builds on your knowledge with Pure, Mechanics, Statistics and Decision.
Further Maths is a demanding and challenging course to develop your analytical and problem solving skills in Maths at a fast pace. When you choose to study Further Maths, you will study an A-Level in Mathematics and an A-Level in Further Mathematics, equating to two A-Levels when combined. You will not be able to study Further Mathematics without the Mathematics A-Level.
Modules include Core, Mechanics, Statistics, Pure, and Decision covering algebra, geometry, trigonometry, logarithms, vectors, forces, probability, momentum, variable and programming.
This builds upon the A-level core as well as introducing new topics such as mathematical proof, complex numbers, matrices, polar coordinates, hyperbolic functions and differential equations.
Includes topics such as momentum and collisions, Energy, circular motion, centres of mass and moments.
Includes topics such as random variables, expectation, statistical distributions and errors.
Includes topics such as linear programming, networks, group theory and game theory.
