Course description

A Level Mathematics

We offer a large selection of A Level subjects which are taught by enthusiastic, industry-experienced tutors.

To help develop your maths problem-solving and analytical skills this course allows you to study core areas. Pure core mathematics will build ideas in algebra and functions, sequences and series, geometry, trigonometry and calculus, followed by the conceptual foundations for applications in statistics and mechanics and beyond.

You will also develop an understanding of advanced mathematics and appreciate some of its powerful applications.

This course can be studied as part of the business or science A Level pathway at Reading College.

Minimum of six GCSEs at grade 4 (C) or above including English Language and Maths, but excluding PE, Dance, Catering or other subjects with a large practical component.

For this subject you will also need a minimum grade 6 (or equivalent) in GCSE Maths.

You will need (for year 1): An advanced scientific calculator; we recommend the Casio fx-991EX as a minimum (around £30), or alternatively, the Casio graphical calculators fx-9750, fx-9860 or fx-CG20 (around £60, £80 and £110 respectively).

Optionally, a hard copy of the textbook “AQA A-Level Mathematics Year 1 (AS)” by Goldie et al, published by Hodder (paperback ISBN 9781471852862 £27.99). Access to an electronic version of this textbook is expected to be provided, which you can access in class by smartphone or tablet if you have one. 

Training Course Content

The course includes four units of pure maths and then your study will include the following: 

  • Unit 1: core 1 algebra and functions - coordinate geometry in the (xy) plane sequences and series, differentiation integration
  • Unit 2: core 2 algebra and functions - coordinate geometry in the (xy) plane sequences and series, trigonometry exponentials and logarithms, differentiation integration
  • Unit 3: statistics 1 or mechanics 1. mathematical models in either probability and statistics or in mechanics. The course is modular and students will study two modules consisting of pure mathematics, and either mechanics or statistics, per year
  • Unit 4: core 3 algebra and functions, trigonometry exponentials and logarithms, differentiation, numerical methods
  • Unit 5: core 4 algebra and functions - coordinate geometry in the (xy) plane sequences and series differentiation integration vectors
  • Unit 6: statistics 1, statistics 2, mechanics 1 or mechanics 2
