Mathematics is a challenging but worthwhile course which can provide you with the skills and problem solving capability required in a rapidly changing world. The course in Mathematics will develop mathematical problem solving skills through use of mathematical argument, language and proof and enable students to apply these skills to mathematical modelling. Students will explore three main areas of Mathematics; Pure Mathematics, Mechanics and Statistics.
Possible Career Paths
There are very few degree subjects for which a Maths A Level would not be useful. Maths is a way of thinking, a set of tools, which give you valuable problem solving skills. Traditional careers tend to be Accountancy, Analysts, Construction, Computing & IT, Education, Engineering, Financial Services, Operational Research to name but a few.
