This course is designed for students who achieve an 9 to 4 in GCSE Mathematics, who choose not to continue with AS-level or A-level Mathematics.
This qualification can count as the mathematics element of the new Technical Baccalaureate, introduced from September 2014 and the Level 3 Mathematics Attainment Measure. It is distinct from GCE AS Level Mathematics as learners consolidate mathematical techniques that can be directly applied to real life contexts.
During this course students will develop:
- an understanding of how mathematics can be applied in a real-world context
- critical analysis skills and reasoning
- their mathematical knowledge and how to make logical and reasoned decisions in solving problems both within pure mathematics and in a variety of contexts, and communicate the mathematical rationale for these decisions clearly
- Develop competence in the selection and use of mathematical methods and
- Develop confidence in representing and analysing authentic situations
- mathematically, and in applying mathematics to address related questions and issues
- Build skills in mathematical thinking, reasoning and communication.
Minimum 5 GCSE grades 9-4 including English and Maths
