Enhance your mathematical knowledge and problem solving skills through challenging and interesting topics such as algebra and trigonometry. You will explore new topics such as calculus, circle theory, binomial expansions and how objects respond to the forces acting upon them.

You will study:

  • Algebra
  • Trigonometry
  • Calculus
  • Differentiation and integration
  • Circle theorem
  • Geometric series and trigonometric identities
  • Statistics
  • Numerical methods
  • Logarithms
  • Binomial expansions
  • 3D Vectors
  • Mechanics

This course is 100% exam based.

AS Level – Year 1 You will expand your knowledge on topics studied at GCSE as well as introducing new ideas such as calculus. You’ll study the applications ofdifferentiation and integration, circle theorem, geometric series and trigonometric identities. You will also explore Mechanics and how to describe mathematically the motion of objects and how they respond to forces acting upon them, collisions and 2 dimensional vectors. This unit is particularly useful if you are also studying A level physics A2 Level – Year 2 You will extendyour knowledge of topics studied at AS Level, such as trigonometry identities, differentiation, numerical methods and logarithms, implicit differentiation, integration, 3 dimensional vectors, partial fractions and binomial expansion. Develop your understanding of Mechanics from AS level. Learn how to describe mathematically the motion of projectiles in 2 dimensions, collisions involving Newton’s law of restitution, energy conservation, moments, centre of gravity of irregular shapes and non uniform acceleration problems.

Example job roles:

  • Engineer
  • Mechanical Engineer
  • Accountant
  • Business Executive

Progress to degrees in Accounting, Finance, Engineering, Economics and Mathematics.

APS Calculator:

The APS (Average Point Score) of 40 = an average of grade C in all GCSE’s taken. BTEC equivalents are not acceptable.

APS 44* and 5 GCSEs at grades 5/C or above including English, and a grade 6/B or above in double award science, or a single science in physics, and maths.
