Further Maths is an exciting course involving high-powered, advanced techniques where you will encounter totally new areas/topics that you may not have come across at all, yet eg. Matrices, Induction, Complex and Imaginary Numbers, as well as Calculus etc. Particularly relevant today, in the Statistics option you will explore a variety of different test procedures on data to decide whether, for instance, a new drug/vaccine has had a conclusive, positive outcome on patients.
You will be greatly enhancing your logistical and problem solving skills and producing new and varied (and beautiful, elegant) methods for solving questions, resulting in you becoming a creative and independent learner; and a very sought after asset in the continually changing job market.
The underlying key foundation to making a Further Mathematician is their expert use of algebra. It appears in virtually all topic areas. So we advise that you practice algebraic manipulation and seek out the most complex GCSE questions in order to prepare for the September start.
Further Maths is not for the faint-hearted, so it is important that you complete the bridging work below during the summer, else you will start on the 'back foot' and may struggle to keep up.
