Mathematics & Further Mathematics (OCR A)

We study Mathematics in order to become better at solving problems arising either from Mathematics itself or modelled from structures and systems in the real world. Mathematics encourages us to identify patterns, to categorise, and to make logical deductions and predictions from facts presented or assumed.

“So if a man's wit be wandering, let him study the mathematics; for in demonstrations, if his wit be called away never so little, he must begin again.”
Francis Bacon, Of Studies

Mathematics is a branch of abstract reasoning that is curiously useful for understanding the universe: the numbers, operations and constructions of Mathematics exist only in their purest form in the mind of the mathematician but understanding their behaviour is a powerful tool for solving problems in the real world. Mathematics is a discipline in  which  problem  solving,  lateral  thinking  and  imaginative  reasoning  are  as  valuable  as  a  facility  for  careful  and accurate calculation.

The best reason for taking Mathematics at A Level is that students will enjoy studying it: that is, that they will find satisfaction in stretching their intellect to understand abstract ideas and tackle taxing problems.  It is also a subject with wide utility and is a requirement for further study in a variety of areas.  Further Mathematics is welcomed by universities as a valuable A Level in addition to Mathematics and is highly suitable for students who want to spend half of their curriculum time in the study of this marvellous discipline.

Students will need to take Mathematics A Level  if  they  want  to  study  Mathematics  or  Computer  Science,  Physical  Sciences,  Engineering,  Economics, Management  or  PPE  at  university.  They may also find Mathematics  A Level  helpful  while  studying  Chemistry, Physics, Geography, Economics and Biology A Levels; similarly they may find Mathematics A Level useful if they are thinking of taking Chemistry, Biology, Psychology,  Medicine  or  Geography  at  university,  but  it  is  not  essential.  Mathematics A Level can be a good indicator of the ability to cope with the logical aspects of Philosophy at university.
