Mathematics

A Level Mathematics (Edexcel)

Aims

To enable students to:

  • understand mathematics and mathematical processes in a way that promotes confidence, fosters enjoyment and provides a strong foundation for progress to further study
  • extend their range of mathematical skills and techniques
  • understand coherence and progression in mathematics and how different areas of mathematics are connected
  • apply mathematics in other fields of study and be aware of the relevance of mathematics to the world of work and to situations in society in general
  • use their mathematics knowledge to make logical and reasoned decisions in solving problems both within pure mathematics and in a variety of contexts, and communicate the mathematics rationale for these decisions clearly
  • reason logically and recognise incorrect reasoning
  • generalise mathematically
  • construct mathematical proofs
  • use their mathematical skills and techniques to solve challenging problems that require them to decide on the solution strategy
  • recognise when mathematics can be used to analyse and solve a problem in context
  • represent situations mathematics and understand the relationship between problems in context and mathematical models that may be applied to solve them
  • draw diagrams and sketch graphs to help explore mathematical situations and interpret solutions
  • make deductions and inferences and draw conclusions by using mathematical reasoning
  • interpret solutions and communicate their interpretations effectively in the context of the problem
  • read and comprehend mathematical arguments, including justifications of methods and formulae, and communicate their understanding
  • read and comprehend articles concerning applications of mathematics and communicate their understanding
  • use technology such a calculators and computers effectively and recognise when their use may be inappropriate
  • take increasing responsibility for their own learning and the evaluation of their own mathematical development.
