    Mathematics

    A level Mathematics involves the study of mathematical principles and techniques and their application to theoretical and practical problem solving. It provides the sound base necessary for further mathematical study. Students are encouraged to purchase graphic calculators to help understand complex concepts and techniques and to explore new areas of Mathematics.

    The course is assessed by 3 equally weighted papers of duration 2 hours.

    Papers 1 & 2 cover the Pure content, including

    Proof

    Algebra & Functions

    Coordinate Geometry

    Sequences & Series

    Trigonometry

    Exponentials & logarithms

    Differentiation & Integration

    Numerical Methods

    Vectors

    Paper 3 covers both Statistics And Mechanics

    Section A                                                                          Section B

    Statistical sampling                                                          Quantities & units

    Data presentation & interpretation                                   Kinematics

    Probability                                                                        Forces & Newton’s Laws

    Statistical distributions                                                     Moments

    Statistical hypothesis testing

    The course is an excellent preparation for study of Mathematics in higher education. It also covers the techniques and applications needed for the study of other subjects in higher education such as Engineering, Economics and the Sciences.
