 Further Maths Edexcel Year 12 Year 13 Core Pure Maths 1: Complex numbers, matrices, roots of polynomials.  Pure maths with plenty of algebra. Useful for Engineering and Maths degrees.   And a choice of two of the following four units:   Further Pure: Vectors, Conic sections, Inequalities, Numerical methods, differential equations   Further Mechanics:  Kinematics, forces, momentum Complements the Mechanics studied at the start of the Physics course.   Further Statistics:  Distributions A step on from Statistics 1, this module looks at how naturally occurring phenomena can be modelled.   Decision Assessment Two exams of 1 hour and 40 minutes. Core Pure Maths 2: Rational functions, polar graphs, numerical methods.  Pure Maths mainly looking at the algebra around graphs and trigonometry   And a choice of two of the following four units:   Further Pure: Vectors, Conic sections, Inequalities, Numerical methods, differential equations   Further Mechanics:  Centre of mass, energy, work and power, projectiles. Again, complementing the A level Physics course, this module looks at more complex motion, a good preparation for Mechanical Engineering.   Further Statistics:  Distributions A step on from Statistics 1, this module looks at how naturally occurring phenomena can be modelled.    Decision Assessment Four exams of 1 hour and 30 minutes. Teaching of Further Maths: Further Maths is available to students whose average GCSE grade is 8 or above and only as a fourth A Level. Students will sit the AS examination in Year 12 and, if they wish to complete the full A Level, Year 13 will be taught online with  live tutorials conducted in school and led by the Advanced Maths Support Programme https://amsp.org.uk/ . Students will be expected to work independently in preparation for their tutorials and their progress will be monitored by the online tutor and their Maths teachers. Links Well With: Further Maths links particularly well with Physics, Chemistry and Product Design. Progression Routes: Engineering, Mathematics at university Entry Requirements: GCSE Grade 8 Maths. It is essential that students are able to work independently and prepare for their online tutorials in advance as well as submitting homework to deadline using https://integralmaths.org/ .
