3 The content for further mathematics AS and A levels Introduction 1. AS and A level subject content sets out the knowledge, understanding and skills common to all specifications in further mathematics. Purpose 2. Further mathematics is designed for students with an enthusiasm for mathematics, many of whom will go on to degrees in mathematics, engineering and the physical sciences. 3. The qualification is both deeper and broader than A level mathematics. It is normally taken as an extra subject, typically as a fourth A level. A level further mathematics builds from GCSE level and A level mathematics. As well as building on algebra and calculus introduced in A level mathematics, the A level further mathematics core content introduces complex numbers and matrices, fundamental mathematical ideas with wide applications in mathematics, engineering, physical sciences and computing. The noncore content includes different options that can enable students to specialise in areas of mathematics that are particularly relevant to their interests and future aspirations. A level further mathematics prepares students for further study and employment in highly mathematical disciplines that require knowledge and understanding of sophisticated mathematical ideas and techniques. 4. AS further mathematics, which can be cotaught with the A level as a separate qualification, is a very useful qualification in its own right, broadening and reinforcing the content of A level mathematics, introducing complex numbers and matrices, and giving students the opportunity to extend their knowledge in applied mathematics. This is very valuable for supporting the transition to degree level work and employment in mathematical disciplines. Aims and objectives 5. AS and A level specifications in further mathematics must encourage students to: understand mathematics and mathematical processes in a way that promotes confidence, fosters enjoyment and provides a strong foundation for progress to further study extend their range of mathematical skills and techniques 3
4 understand coherence and progression in mathematics and how different areas of mathematics are connected apply mathematics in other fields of study and be aware of the relevance of mathematics to the world of work and to situations in society in general use their mathematical knowledge 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 take increasing responsibility for their own learning and the evaluation of their own mathematical development reason logically and recognise incorrect reasoning generalise mathematically construct mathematical proofs use their mathematical skills and techniques to solve challenging problems which require them to decide on the solution strategy recognise when mathematics can be used to analyse and solve a problem in context represent situations mathematically and understand the relationship between problems in context and mathematical models that may be applied to solve them draw diagrams and sketch graphs to help explore mathematical situations and interpret solutions make deductions and inferences and draw conclusions by using mathematical reasoning interpret solutions and communicate their interpretation effectively in the context of the problem read and comprehend mathematical arguments, including justifications of methods and formulae, and communicate their understanding read and comprehend articles concerning applications of mathematics and communicate their understanding use technology such as calculators and computers effectively, and recognise when such use may be inappropriate. 4
5 Subject content Structure 6. A level further mathematics has a prescribed core and 50% of its overall assessment must address this content. The core content is set out below in sections A to H. For the remaining 50% of the content different options are available. The content of these options is not prescribed and will be defined within the different awarding organisations specifications. These options could build from the applied content in A level mathematics, they could introduce new applications, they could further extend the pure mathematics content defined below, or they could involve some combination of these. 7. The content of AS further mathematics must introduce new content, build from the AS content of A level mathematics, or a combination of both. It must not overlap with, or depend upon, other A level mathematics content. A minimum of 30% of the assessment of AS further mathematics must address the prescribed core content of the further mathematics A level. Core content that must be included in AS further mathematics is indicated in sections A to C in bold text within square brackets, and this must represent 20% of the overall assessment of AS further mathematics. In addition, a minimum of 10% of the assessment must address other prescribed core content of the further mathematics A level, which can be selected at the discretion of the awarding organisations. Background knowledge 8. AS and A level further mathematics specifications must build on the skills, knowledge and understanding set out in the GCSE subject content for mathematics and the subject content for A level mathematics. Problem solving, proof and mathematical modelling will be assessed in further mathematics in the context of the wider knowledge which students taking AS/A level further mathematics will have. Overarching themes 9. A level specifications in further mathematics must require students to demonstrate the following knowledge and skills. These must be applied, along with associated mathematical thinking and understanding, across the whole content of the A level set out below. The knowledge and skills are similar to those specified for A level mathematics, but they will be examined against further mathematics content and contexts. 10. The minimum knowledge and skills required for AS further mathematics are shown in bold text within square brackets. 5

The use of technology, in particular mathematical graphing tools and spreadsheets, must permeate the AS/A level further mathematics specifications. 12. Students must not have access to technology with a computer algebra system (CAS) function in examinations, except where the use of CAS is a specific objective within an optional assessment component of further mathematics.
