Headteacher's Welcome Message
I would like to welcome you to Audenshaw School's Website. I hope that you enjoy visiting it and by doing so will gain a clearer idea of all that goes on within the school whether this is academic achievements, our wide range of extra-curricular activities on offer or our relationships with the wider local and global communities. I strongly believe that it is vital to celebrate the successes of our school and have designed the website to highlight these key areas. The school has always and will always place huge emphasis on academic achievement. We have a long and proud tradition of academic success and are proud of our standing within the community and also what our students go on to achieve after they leave the school. I hope that our traditional yet forward thinking ethos has been reflected in the stories and images on the pages of our website.

KS5 Maths (New Specification)

Mathematics
(Examination Board: Edexcel – Specification code 9MA0)

Do you want to work on big engineering projects, design aircraft or submarines, design video games or even go into teaching? A Level maths will give you an opportunity to study maths at a higher level. It will require deep thinking, problem solving and a rational approach to a new programme of study. Each section will test your skills to analyse information, and study new and varied topics. A Level extends your learning from GCSE and introduces new topics that differ completely from those previously studied.

The A Level mathematics course is highly regarded by universities and employers. It fits any combination of subjects and complements a wide range of other courses such as Business Studies, Geography, ICT and the Sciences.

Mathematics is a very popular A Level subject at Audenshaw. This course consists of a mixture of core mathematics, statistics and mechanics, which allows for a broad range of applied mathematics.

There is no coursework requirement for A Level mathematics, the subject is assessed wholly by examination.

Useful links below:

 

A2 Level

Core mathematics content: Applied mathematics content:

Content overview

● Topic 1 – Proof

● Topic 2 – Algebra and functions

● Topic 3 – Coordinate geometry in the (x, y) plane

● Topic 4 – Sequences and series

● Topic 5 – Trigonometry

● Topic 6 – Exponentials and logarithms

● Topic 7 – Differentiation

● Topic 8 – Integration

● Topic 9 – Numerical

Content overview

Section A: Statistics

● Topic 1 – Statistical sampling

● Topic 2 – Data presentation and interpretation

● Topic 3 – Probability

● Topic 4 – Statistical distributions

● Topic 5 – Statistical hypothesis testing

Section B: Mechanics

● Topic 6 – Quantities and units in mechanics

● Topic 7 – Kinematics

● Topic 9 – Forces and Newton’s laws

● Topic 9 – Moments

The course offers logical and clearly structured progression through mind-stretching exercises. The addition of problem solving activities at advanced levels means the work will be both challenging and highly enjoyable.

You will be introduced to new fields of study including calculus, mechanics and functions, while developing familiar areas such as algebra, probability and trigonometry.

This demanding course requires a good knowledge of higher level mathematics.

Career Options for Post 16 Maths Students - • Engineering • Banking /Finance • Web Design • Research • Quantity Surveyor • Teaching

These and many more career opportunities are available to you. Whatever you go into, maths A Level students will have new and varied skills that would be attractive to any employer.

Further Mathematics
(Examination Board: Edexcel – Specification code 9FM0)

 You should think of doing further mathematics if you enjoy mathematics and are very good at it, especially algebraic manipulation. It must be taken in conjunction with A Level mathematics – you cannot take further mathematics on its own. It will involve further additional study of advanced mathematics.

A2 Level

Core mathematics content: Applied mathematics content:

● Topic 1 – Proof

● Topic 2 – Complex numbers

● Topic 3 – Matrices

● Topic 4 – Further algebra and functions

● Topic 5 – Further calculus

● Topic 6 – Further vectors

● Topic 7 – Polar coordinates

● Topic 8 – Hyperbolic functions

● Topic 9 – Differential equations

**Students take one of the following four options:

A: Further Pure Mathematics 1

B: Further Statistics 1

C: Further Mechanics 1

D: Decision Mathematics 1

Alongside the core content one of the applied units above should be taken to gain an A Level in further maths.

In Further Pure Mathematics 1 students will be assessed on: Further trigonometry, Further calculus, Further differential equations, Coordinate systems, Further vectors, Further numerical methods and Inequalities.

In Further Statistics 1 students will be assessed on: Discrete probability distributions, Poisson and binomial distributions, Geometric and negative binomial distributions, Hypothesis testing, Central limit theorem, Chi squared tests, Probability generating functions and Quality of tests.

In Further Mechanics 1 students will be assessed on: Momentum and impulse, Work - energy and power, Elastic energy and Elastic collisions in one and two dimensions.

In Decision Mathematics 1 students will be assessed on: Algorithms and graph theory, Algorithms on graphs 1 and 2, Critical path analysis and Linear programming.

Further maths is traditionally taught in smaller teaching groups where you will have more one-to-one tuition. More and more students now opt to study further maths as there are many benefits in having two A levels in mathematics. The results to date have been excellent. It is highly recommended that you do maths and further maths at A Level if you intend to study mathematics at university or take a maths related degree such as engineering. A level further mathematics is an absolute essential minimum if you are thinking about applying to study mathematics at Oxbridge.

You do not have to be considering studying maths at degree level to do further maths A level. A love of maths and the desire for a rewarding challenge will suffice, along with a grade 8 or 9 at GCSE.
