The study of Mathematics involves careful reasoning which can be applied to many aspects of life, including voting trends, financial stability and climate change.

Mathematics ‘A’ level is a valuable qualification for most careers and university courses. The list of such courses or careers would be endless but would certainly include the following: Mathematics, Engineering, Physics, Computing, Accountancy, Economics, Business, Banking, Air Traffic Control, Retail Management, Architecture, Surveying, Cartography, Psychology and, of course, Teaching.

A Level Mathematics B (MEI) is a linear qualification. The content is listed below, under three areas:
1. Pure mathematics includes proof, algebra, graphs, sequences, trigonometry, logarithms, calculus and vectors
2. Mechanics includes kinematics, motion under gravity, working with forces including friction, Newton’s laws and simple moments.
3. Statistics includes working with data from a sample to make inferences about a population, probability calculations, using binomial and Normal distributions as models and statistical hypothesis testing.

To study Mathematics is an exciting and challenging experience and you will need to be resilient and prepared to work hard.
