Mathematics AS and A2 AQA

AQA 7356 (AS New Specification) and 6361 (A2 Legacy Specification) only

7356 (AS New Specification)

The following two courses are board-specific for the NEW AQA AS level specification (7356).

1. Pure Maths: Mathematical argument, language and proof; Mathematical problem solving;
Mathematical modelling; Proof; Algebra and functions; Coordinate geometry in the (x,y) plane;
Sequences and series; Trigonometry; Exponentials and logarithms; Differentiation; Integration;
Vectors.

2. Applied Maths: Statistical sampling; Data presentation and interpretation; Probability; Statistical distributions; Statistical hypothesis testing; Quantities and units in mechanics; Kinematics; Forces and Newton’s laws.

Each course consists of five half-day sessions across either five mornings or five afternoons and
costs £550.

6361 (A2 Legacy Specification)

The following two courses are board-specific for the LEGACY AQA A2 level specification (6361).

1. Pure Maths: Core 3 (C3) and Core 4 (C4)

C3 and C4 are revised in combination.

  • C3 (MPC3): Algebra and functions; Trigonometry; Exponentials and logarithms; Differentiation; Integration; Numerical methods
  • C4 (MPC4): Algebra and functions; Co-ordinate geometry; Sequences and series; Trigonometry; Exponentials and logarithms; Differentiation and integration; Vectors

The course consists of five half-day sessions across either five mornings or five afternoons and costs £550.

2. Applied Maths: Mechanics 1 (M1) and/or Statistics 1 (S1)

M1 and S1 can be studied either individually or in combination with the core units, depending on the student’s timetable.

  • M1 (MM1): Mathematical modelling; Kinematics in one and two dimensions; Statics and forces; Momentum; Newton’s laws of motion; Connected particles; Projectiles
  • S1 (MS1): Numerical measures; Probability; Binomial distribution; Normal distribution; Estimation; Correlation and regression

Applied units are taught over five consecutive days with 1.5 hours of contact time per unit per day. The cost is £225 per unit.

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 so that a bespoke timetable can be suggested.
