This may be the problem of finding the shortest route between two towns or the most efficient route for a postman to deliver letters on a housing estate. ? Core 1 and Core 2: The two core units develop further the skills learned at GCSE and contain topics such as algebra, functions, geometry, and sequences as well as new topics such as differentiation and integration. In the second year students will study three more units, Core 3 and Core 4, in addition to a choice of either Statistics 1 or Mechanics 1.
