FURTHER MATHEMATICS Exam Board: Edexcel Course Contact: Miss E Cox What will I study? Further Mathematics must be taken in conjunction with Mathematics. The course is split into two elements; Further Pure (Core) and Applied Mathematics. The compulsory Further Pure module extends your algebraic skills; using matrices to solve systems of equations, introducing methods of proof and extending your number system to work with complex numbers. The Applied modules oﬀer a variety of practical applications of Mathematics. The Mechanics modules explore concepts related to Physics. The Decision Maths modules explore algorithms and logic based decision making. A selection of applied modules will be studied across the duration of the course. What next? The Further Mathematics course is a good accompaniment to AS/A Levels in Physics and Chemistry. It is a good contrast to English and History due to its 100% examination assessment. Further Mathematics A-Level should be considered by anyone hoping to apply to study Mathematics or a related course (e.g. Physics, Engineering, etc.). 65% of the Russell Group Universities cite Further Maths as essential or desirable for the study of Mathematics (May 2012). Entry requirements: Students should have a minimum grade of an A*in GCSE Maths.
