The course covers many areas of mathematics and enables the students to acquire knowledge and skills with confidence, satisfaction and enjoyment. This involves studying pure mathematics as a continuation and development of GCSE work, developing skills to model mathematics to real-life situations in Mechanics, Probability and Statistics and learning about the use of mathematics in problem solving.
Here at All Saints we involve our Sixth Form Mathematics’ students in the National Mathematics Challenges and The Pop Mathematics Quiz at Hallam University.
