## KS5 Curriculum

At Enfield Grammar School Mathematics is a popular choice in the sixth form: currently nearly one hundred students are taking the subject.

Mathematics at Advanced (â€˜ASâ€™ or â€˜A2â€™) level is a very sought after qualification and is in fact an essential requirement for many University courses. It demonstrates that you have the ability to think logically, are numerate and can solve problems analytically. Mathematics also supports the learning in several other subjects, notably the Sciences, Economics, Psychology and Geography.

**Mathematics and Further Mathematics (Edexcel)**

The advanced level Mathematics course consists of six modules; four on Core topics and two applications. The core modules allow students to study in more depth number, algebra and geometry, and introduce new topics such as calculus, logarithms and vectors. For the application modules the students are offered a choice of Statistics, Mechanics and Decision Maths. All modules are equally weighted and are each examined by a written paper.

The department also offers an advanced level in Further Mathematics for students who wish to enhance their skills in Mathematics and/or in preparation for university study. Further Mathematics at AS level is becoming an increasingly desirable qualification for some degree courses in Engineering, Natural Science and Economics and is a prerequisite for many mathematical degrees. Students studying the Further Mathematics option have additional teaching time allocated and their course of study includes the more advanced pure topics and also mechanics topics such as forces, moments and kinematics.

**Use of Mathematics (AQA)**

Use of Mathematics is a full A Level course available for students who intend to apply for university courses requiring mathematical skills, rather than Mathematics itself. These included Primary Teacher Education, Business, Chemistry, Economics, Law, Pharmacy, Psychology and Quantity Surveying.
