The Maths and Stats A level is split into two major components – AS and A2. The AS level may be sat as a separate qualification in its own right.
Each lesson begins with a set of clearly stated objectives and an explanation of its place in the overall programme of study.
Effective learning is encouraged through frequent activities and self-assessment questions.
The AS Level has thirteen tutor-marked assignments (known as TMAs). The A2 level has a further ten TMAs.
The course covers the seven units in six modules of the following titles:
P1: algebra, trigonometry, integration, etc
P2: exponentials, logarithms, etc
S1: probability, collection of data, correlation, etc
P4: algebraic functions, coordinate geometry etc.
P5: vectors, further coordinate geometry, etc
S2: sampling, estimation, hypothesis testing, etc
This course prepares candidates for the AQA Mathematics AS level syllabus 5361, for examination in 2013 and later years. Most candidates will then study the A2 syllabus 6361. The full Advanced Level qualification comprises AS and A2. We have chosen this syllabus as it is the most suited to distance learning.
Assessment is by three written papers for the AS Level and three written papers for the A2 Level.
There is no coursework for the Maths and Statistics A level.
