AS level in further mathematics (dependent on numbers) which will run alongside the AS level mathematics course. Those who succeed with the AS level can go on to study further mathematics at A Level. The course consists of pure mathematics, decision mathematics and statistics for both AS in year 12 and A in year 13. Further mathematics is suitable for Grade 9 students at GCSE who are aiming to study mathematics (or subjects with a heavy mathematical content) at degree level.
As well as extending the content of the ordinary mathematics AS/A2, the course introduces some new concepts such as complex numbers; matrix algebra; coordinate systems and proof, Students will study decision mathematics covering algorithms; networks; linear programming and critical path analysis. Further statistics is also included in both AS and A courses.
A Level Further Mathematics is highly regarded by universities. If you are planning to take a degree in areas such as engineering, sciences, computing, finance, economics or perhaps mathematics itself, you will benefit enormously from taking further mathematics. Many engineering and mathematics courses at university list A Level Further Mathematics as ‘essential’ or ‘desirable’.
