Course information: AS Level in Mathematics Course summary: This one-year course leads to an AS level, which is a qualification in its own right. It can also be used as the first half (50%) of an A level qualification. Course content: In the first year students will study 2 Core Mathematics modules (C1&C2) together with a module in Decision Mathematics (D1). Core Mathematics Modules C1 and C2 cover: Algebra: quadratics, indices, surds, simultaneous equations, inequalities, division, factors. Co-ordinate Geometry: straight lines, quadratics, cubics, transformations of graphs, the circle. Trigonometry: sine and cosine rules, angles greater than 90?, identities, solution of equations. Sequences and Series: arithmetic, geometric and binomial series. Logarithms and exponentials: graphs and equations Differentiation: gradients, tangents. Integration: areas, trapezium rule. Decision Mathematics Module D1 covers: Algorithms, Critical Path Analysis, Linear Programming, Matchings. Course structure: The course builds upon GCSE knowledge and understanding to provide a broad base of higher level expertise in Mathematics from which students can select pathways to the full GCE ??-A?? level. Practical applications of Mathematics combined with sound techniques make the study of this subject applicable to a wide range of eventual career choices. Assessment procedure: Each module is assessed by a 1? hour examination. There is no coursework. Qualifications achieved: GCE AS Level Mathematics, awarded by Edexcel Progression opportunities: On successful completion of the AS level course, students can progress on to the A2 level. Free study and financial support: Most full-time students do not have to pay for their course. We may also be able to help you with some of the extra costs associated with college, eg travel, childcare, equipment, books etc. In addition, if you have just left school, you may be eligible for an Educational Maintenance Allowance.
