Further Mathematics develops the knowledge acquired during the A Level course and introduces new concepts. Much like the A Level course, the Further Mathematics course consists of three strands: Further Pure, Further Mechanics and Decision. Students will be introduced to a wide range of new content including matrices, complex numbers, advanced differential functions, linear programming and mechanics of collisions.
What opportunities will this lead to?
A Level Mathematics is widely regarded as a strong A Level discipline and forms part of the requisite A Level entry requirements for many degree courses. A Level Mathematics will enable students to progress on to further education in scientific and engineering fields. The inclusion of an A Level in Further Mathematics offers opportunities into careers where more in depth Mathematics knowledge is required, such as Computer Science, Statistics and Economics.
