Coombes Sixth Form

Further Mathematics

Further Mathematics is an extension of the Mathematics and Mechanics Course. You will study extra modules in Pure Mathematics and Mechanics as well as Statistics and Decision Mathematics. Decision Mathematics uses the techniques of discrete mathematics to solve real life problems in many areas.

A-Level mathematics is an excellent foundation for both further study and employment. It remains a particularly impressive qualification that demonstrates core intelligence, a logical mind and excellent problem-solving skills.

“Further Maths is a rewarding and unique A Level that builds on the topics that you learn in Maths, introducing new and abstract concepts. It has helped me build my confidence across all of my subjects, reinforcing my maths and problem solving skills as well as being a highly interesting and enjoyable course. I find that the teachers at Coombe are supportive with anything that you may find challenging, providing help whenever you need it.”

 Studying Mathematics and Further Mathematics will develop your analytical, research and problem solving skills. Not only will it give you the knowledge to tackle scientific, mechanical, coding and abstract problems but it will also help you to develop logic to tackle everyday issues such as planning projects and managing budgets. Both Mathematics and Further Mathematics are well respected by employers and universities because of their demanding nature and versatility. The Russell Group informed choices guide names Mathematics as a “facilitating” subject, meaning it will help you in studying lots of other subjects and pursue lots of different careers. We look forward to welcoming you onto our courses!
