## Mathematics AS and A2 Edexcel

**Boards:** Edexcel (8371 and 9371) only

AS Level Maths comprises three units, usually two **Core** Units and one **Applied** Unit.

A Maths A level comprises six units. There are four **Core** Units and two **Applied** Units.

We offer courses covering the following unit combinations for Edexcel Mathematics:

• Core 1 & Core 2 (C1+C2)

• Core 3 & Core 4 (C3+C4)

• Mechanics 1 and/or Statistics 1 (M1+S1)

**Core Units**

Our course is designed to enable students to choose from the following combinations of Core units:

C1+C2 only

C3+C4 only

C1+C2+C3+C4

**Applied units**

Mechanics (M1) and Statistics (S1) can be studied either on their own or in combination with the core units, depending on the student’s timetable. Applied units are taught over a five day week, with 1.5 hours of contact time per unit per day.

**C3+C4**

• Algebra and functions; Trigonometry; Exponentials and logarithms; Differentiation; Numerical methods

• Algebra and functions; Coordinate geometry in the (x, y) plane; Sequences and series;

Differentiation; Integration; Vectors

**M1+S1**

• Mathematical models in mechanics; Vectors in mechanics; Kinematics of a particle moving in a straight line; Dynamics of a particle moving in a straight line or plane; Statics of a particle; Moments

• Mathematical models in probability and statistics; Representation and summary of data;

Probability; Correlation and regression; Discrete random variables; Discrete distributions; The normal distribution

We strongly advise that students have covered the module at school before attempting to embark upon the revision course for that module.

Please contact a Course Director to discuss your individual requirements/combination of units.
