This Edexcel Mathematics course (9-1 new specification began July 2017)  covers a vast range of topics focussing on 6 main areas; Numbers, Algebra, Ratio & Proportion, Geometry & Measure, Probability and Statistics. The papers come in two levels, higher and foundation, both with three equally weighted exams at the end of the 2 year linear course. The papers aim to challenge students with logical and mathematical problem solving skills in a range of contexts. In one exam paper a calculator is not allowed, encouraging students to work on their mental mathematical abilities and develop valuable transferable skills they can use across the curriculum and in later life.

what is
maths?

Maths is the building block which underpins modern life as we know it, it is behind cinematography, set design, computer programming, architecture, engineering, sport and so much more. There is a beauty in Maths, take Da Vinci’s golden ratio or the curve of a shell in the Fibonacci Sequence. Maths provides you with the opportunity to think logically, helps you develop excellent numeracy skills and the capability to process and interpret data, skills which are sought after in so many different areas. We don't learn Maths to solve complicated Maths probelms we never come across in daily life, we learn Maths to improve our capacity to make decisions when we encounter problems in real life.
