Mathematics

 

The Mathematics Department at Kent College aims to provide a supportive, enjoyable and stimulating environment where students are inspired to achieve. The relevance of Mathematics to everyday life is emphasised as well as its importance to many careers.

AS/A2 level Mathematics and Further Mathematics

A2 Mathematics and Further Mathematics

An A level in Mathematics develops skills in logical thinking and the ability to process information accurately. These skills would be useful for most degree subjects. For instance, degrees in Medicine, Architecture, Engineering, the Sciences and the Social Sciences, including Accountancy, Law and Business Administration.

Mathematics also complements and assists the understanding of a number of A level subjects such as Psychology, Geography, the Sciences, Economics and Business Studies.

Starting in September 2017, students will be studying for the new Edexcel (8MA0) linear A’level. At the end of the U6, they will sit three papers.
