A LEVEL MATHEMATICS

Students will extend their learning from KS4 to A Level by exploring applications of mathematics via the route of Statistics and Mechanics alongside Pure Mathematics. Statistics is the collection and analysis of data, using this to make predictions of future events. Mechanics is the analysis of the physical world around us, including the study of forces and motion. The course is highly challenging and interesting, honing students’ ability to think logically and analytically as well as problem solve.
