A Level Maths


A Level Maths

A Mathematics A Level can lead to any number of educational and career opportunities. Learning maths is so valuable because mathematics forms the basis of so many systems and processes. Many occupational fields require advanced study of maths, making the A Level Mathematics course one of the most versatile you can study. The A Level Mathematics goes beyond the basics of addition and subtraction into the worlds of algebra, geometry, trigonometry, mathematical modelling and more.

A Level Maths

The A Level Maths course will develop your existing knowledge of mathematics into a range of more advanced maths study areas.

The distance learning course will introduce you to the possibilities offered by algebra, trigonometry, geometry, differentiation and integration.

Your maths study will then allow you to take your knowledge into the world of physics, examining the ways in which maths influences a number of processes. You'll study mathematical modelling, kinematics, physical forces and momentum, Newton's laws of motion, circular motion and the application of differential equations.

Because learning maths is integral to so many different fields of study and work, your Mathematics A Level will be a hugely versatile qualification and an asset in whatever you go on to do.


Entry Requirements

You'll need a GCSE Mathematics at C grade or equivalent to enrol in our A Level Mathematics course.  

Where will I go from here?

An A Level in Mathematics can lead to university studies and a wide variety of careers, from science-related roles to business and teaching. If you want to enter or progress in employment, you'll find your Mathematics A Level will demonstrate to employers that you have the ability to commit to learning, and have acquired good reasoning and analytical skills - essential in practically every walk of life.

What will I gain?

This course will prepare you to sit the A Level Mathematics exams.
