Our Vision for Maths
Students at SJB study Maths to:
- Develop their passion for problem-solving and nurture a love and enjoyment of the subject. From types of triangles to advanced trigonometry, Maths is fun and inclusive for all.
- Equip them to be numerically literate for an ever-changing world where Maths underpins world systems through a universal language.
- Learn important skills, such as critical and logical thinking, that are crucial and applicable to all areas of life. Whether our students go on to be a stage designer or an astronaut; the skills that students develop through studying Maths will equip them for wider society.
Some students find that studying a single A-level in Mathematics is not sufficient preparation for degrees with a significant mathematical content.
Numerous universities now stipulate that Further Maths is a preferred subject for many of their Maths/Economics/Engineering based degree courses.
Outline of Course
Students should be fluent in both their algebraic skills and trigonometry skills from GCSE.
Suitable candidates for the course are those who enjoy working independently to solve complex mathematical problems.
Exam Board: Edexcel
The year 12 content is accessible to a solid A level Maths candidate as not all of the new modules require prior knowledge. However, the year 13 is much more challenging and as such an exceptionally talented Mathematician will thrive on some of the more complex concepts (many of which take study to undergraduate level). The level of difficulty of the A-level should not be underestimated. Some degree courses with high Mathematical content may expect candidates to have studied Further Maths.
