Mathematics in the VIth Form
Mathematics at AS and A-level builds on GCSE work. It involves the application of theoretical concepts to real life problems, simplifying and modelling them where appropriate in order to provide solutions.
You will develop skills in reasoning, logic and proof and will understand when the use of technology in Mathematics is effective and appropriate. Questions will often be less structured than at GCSE and you will have to think through problems and decide on appropriate strategies and techniques.
Mathematics serves as a useful support for other courses as well as being a sought after qualification in the work place and in Higher Education. Courses that require Mathematics at A-level, or are strongly related, include accountancy, engineering, psychology, economics, medicine, architecture, teaching, environmental studies, computing and IT.
