    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.

    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 

    • Statistical sampling 
    • Data presentation & interpretation     
    • Probability      
    • Statistical distributions         
    • Statistical hypothesis testing

    Section B

    • Quantities & units
    • Kinematics
    • Forces & Newton’s Laws
    • Moments

    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.
