The course aims to encourage students to derive
interest, enjoyment and a sense of achievement
from their studies. Students will learn by doing
experiments, solving problems, analysing data and
obtaining information from a variety of sources. We
will expect students to show interest and initiative in
their work and to be reliable in meeting deadlines.
Students will need to take responsibility for their
own notes and for reading widely around the
subject. Students should take it upon themselves
to act positively by seeking help and advice when
in difficulty. Students must be mathematically
competent and should be aware that several new
mathematical skills beyond GCSE level will be
taught and examined throughout this course.
