The linear A Level course from Edexcel covers pure and applied mathematics in the ratio 2:1. Mathematics students will cover pure maths topics such as: algebra; geometry and calculus. Applied topics include compulsory statistics and mechanics. Many topics will require students to apply their knowledge to solving real world problems such as modelling a bridge as a quadratic equation or finding the minimum amount of material needed to create the largest volume container.
Note that students with a particular interest in maths (especially those who may want to go on to study maths at university) should also seriously consider taking A Level Further Mathematics.
GCSE grade 6 in Mathematics is required for A Level Mathematics.
