Overview

A-Level Maths builds on and extends GCSE knowledge and skills and introduces new ideas, such as calculus and its applications. Most of the course involves using algebra and it covers topics such as trigonometry, co-ordinate geometry, differentiation and integration (calculus), and algebraic techniques and functions.

The course assessment is entirely through examination. A-Level Maths prepare students for further study and employment in a wide range of disciplines involving the use of maths such as sciences, social sciences, engineering and business.

Details

This qualification is linear. Linear means that students will sit all their exams at the end of the course.  This A-level qualification builds on the skills, knowledge and understanding set out in the whole GCSE (9–1) subject content for mathematics.
