# Further Maths AS and A Level

## Science and Mathematics

We are only accepting one application per candidate.

#### What will you be working towards?

 Code TPT13 Qualification Type GCE A/AS Level or Equivalent Qualification Level Level 3 Course type Full Time

#### Overview

In Y12 you study AS Mathematics and AS Further Mathematics.

In Y13 you complete A Level Mathematics and A Level Further Mathematics.

In Further Maths you will study Pure Core content and two from Statistics, Mechanics, Discrete Maths and Additional Pure Maths over two years.

#### Details

Students will learn the principles of Core Mathematics and how to apply them in the context of Mechanics, Statistics and Decision Maths.  AS Further Maths involves Further Pure Mathematics.

• Pure Core - extended and deeper knowledge of proof, algebra, function, calculus, vectors, complex numbers, matrices, differential equation, polar coordinate and hyperbolic function.
• Statistics - Combinations, discrete and continuous probability distribution, confidence intervals, hypothesis testing, chi - squared and non-parameter tests, correlation and regression.
• Mechanics - Dimensional analysis, work, energy, powers, impulse, momentum, centres of mass, circular motion, vectors, variable force.
• Discrete Maths - Optimisation, graphs and networks, algorithms, critical path anaylsis, linear programming, game theory, simplex, Hmailtonian graphs.
• Additional Pure Maths - recurrence relation, number theory, group theory, vector product, eigenvalues and eigenvectors, surfaces, partial differentation.

#### How will it be delivered?

A commitment to Further Mathematics requires 9 teaching periods each week.

In Further Maths, AS Level is assessed by three components at the end of Y12: Pure Core and two of Statistics, Mechanics, Discrete Maths and Additional Pure Maths.

A Level is assessed by 4 components at the end of Y13: Two Pure Core Exams and two of Statistics, Mechanics, Discrete Maths and Additional Pure Maths.
