4
What topics are studied? The Pure Mathematics element of Further Mathematics builds on the Pure Mathematics studied in the standard Maths A level New topics include: Complex NumbersMatrices Mathematical proof

5
What topics are studied? Pure Maths topics developed further from the standard A level include: FunctionsAlgebra Calculus Differential Equations

6
What topics are studied? In Applied Maths you can develop the applied topics from your standard Maths A level to a higher level, or broaden your knowledge into different topics StatisticsMechanics Decision & Discrete Maths Applied Maths modules may be studied in: Numerical Analysis

7
How are the AS and A level qualifications made up? You need 6 extra modules for an A-level in Further Maths, two of which must be Further Pure Maths 1 and Further Pure Maths 2 You need 3 extra modules for an AS in Further Maths, one of which must be Further Pure Maths 1

8
Your studies will be managed by a tutor How will studying through the Further Mathematics Centre work? You will use resources on an extensive, purpose-written website You will learn to make effective use of your textbook A lot more of of your studying will be done independently
