During this course, you will learn to extend your knowledge of algebra and geometry from GCSE and explore the ways in which mathematics can be applied in the real world.
Areas which you will cover include:
• New topics such as coordinate geometry, series, differentiation and integration.
• Branching further into pure maths with topics such as logarithms
and exponentials, radian measures and higher level trigonometry
• More complex pure maths including trigonometric proofs, further differentiation and integration as well as numerical methods for finding solutions
• Further and more complex work on coordinate geometry as well as simple vectors. Lots of the maths studied in earlier work is linked together and developed further in the second year of study.
• The applied modules, Statistics and Mechanics are now compulsory. Applied mathematics further develops the pure skills in real world situations such as the laws of motion, friction, gravity, testing hypothesis from samples and predicting outcomes.
