BSP 0344


Further Maths is for students who love Maths and are very good at it. It broadens your mathematical skills and promotes deeper mathematical thinking. You may be considering a university course in mathematics, physics or engineering. Certain "high demand" courses at a number of universities (in subjects such as engineering) may prefer students who have studied Further Maths.

The Further Maths course is split into pure mathematics and applied mathematics. Within Pure Maths, you will look at Proof, Complex numbers, Matrices, Further algebra and functions, Further calculus, Further vectors, Polar coordinates, Hyperbolic functions and Differential equations.

Decision Maths and Further Mechanics form the two “options” following route H on the specification.
