This course will be assessed over three papers, each representing one third of the overall grade, all of which have to be sat in the same academic year.
Papers 1 and 2: (Pure Mathematics 1 and 2) will assess proof, algebra and functions, coordinate geometry, sequences and series, trigonometry, exponentials and logarithms, calculus, vectors and numerical methods.
Paper 3: (Statistics and Mechanics) is in two sections. In the Statistics section students will be assessed on statistical sampling, data presentation and interpretation, probability, statistical distribution and hypothesis testing. In the Mechanics section students will be assessed on quantities and units in mechanics, kinematics, forces and Newton’s laws and moments.
