A Level Maths



Two-thirds of the work is Pure Mathematics, with one-sixth each of Statistics and Mechanics. 


Pure Mathematics 


Builds on and develops the algebraic and trigonometric techniques students have learnt at GCSE so that they acquire the fluency required for advanced work, and introduces students to a number of topics fundamental to the advanced study of mathematics, such as calculus. 


• Modelling and Proof 

• Algebra 

• Polynomials 

• Binomial expansion 

• Co-ordinate Geometry 

• Transformations of Curves 

• Sequences and Series 

• Exponentials and Logarithms 

• Trigonometry 

• Differentiation 

• Integration 

• Numerical Methods 

• Vectors 




Enables students to build on and extend the data handling and sampling techniques they have learnt at GCSE. They will apply theoretical knowledge to practical situations using simple probability models, and extend their ability to represent data in bivariate situations, with an emphasis on linear and rank order modelling, and associated hypothesis testing. 


Statistical Sampling 

Data Presentation and Interpretation 


Statistical Distributions 

Hypothesis Testing 




Introduces students to mathematical modelling and to the basic concepts in kinematics, statics and dynamics. They will then develop and extend the range of mechanical concepts which they are able to use in modelling situations. 


Quantities and Units 


Forces and Newton’s Laws
