Level 3

EDX L3 A Level in Further Mathematics

COURSE OVERVIEW

In combination with maths this is the double maths course for those who wish to study more mathematics to a higher level. It is particularly useful to those who want to go on to study a degree in a mathematically related discipline. The Further Maths course is more difficult than the Maths one and is therefore suited to those students who are very able mathematicians.

The course extends the algebra and trigonometry you will learn in A Level Mathematics and also covers areas such as matrices and complex numbers. You will also study units in mechanics and decision maths.

The course is designed to be a smooth transition from GCSE Mathematics.

Topics will be introduced in an accessible, relevant and enjoyable way. There will be time in class to work with others and practice what you have learnt. You will use a mix of textbooks, worksheets and interactive internet resources.

FURTHER INFORMATION

You need a minimum of five GCSEs at 9-4, including grade 7 in Maths and 4 in English Language. This course must be taken alongside Maths A Level.

You will need a strong interest and aptitude for mathematics. You will need to spend a lot of time outside of class working on the concepts taught in class so you need good independent study skills. You will need to build on the knowledge learnt from higher tier Mathematics
GCSE and will need to be particularly strong at algebra and pick up new mathematical concepts quickly.
