Overview

Core Maths is a Level 3 qualification accredited by Ofqual which is the equivalent of an AS-level.  Core Maths aims to give pupils the confidence and skills to succeed not only in Core Maths but in using their mathematics in other post-16 qualifications such as Business Studies and Applied Science. Throughout the course students create mathematical models of real life scenarios alongside learning practical skills such as calculating tax and national insurance. It equips them for the mathematical demands of other courses, higher education, employment and everyday life. 

Details

The course builds on GCSE Mathematics, taking the fundamental skills developed and applying to real life situations. Problems explored range from; analysing statements made in the media and election results, to modelling an estimate for the cost of resurfacing the UK’s motorway network.  

 

There are two exams at the end of the two years; both lasting one and half hours.  

 

Paper 1: 

Data analysis, personal finance, modelling and estimation  

 

Paper 2: 

Critical analysis, the normal distribution, confidence intervals, correlation and regression 

 

The course will focus on problem solving and developing skills needed in real life and for further study.
