Introduction

Further Maths is another complete A level, above and beyond Maths A level. The combination of Maths and Further Maths is called "Double Maths", and for many university courses Double Maths is either compulsory or strongly preferred. Further Maths at A level extends the Algebra and Calculus studied in Maths A level. In Algebra we study complex numbers (which involve i, the square root of -1), hyperbolic functions (which have many similarities to trigonometrical functions yet are fundamentally different) and matrices.

In Calculus we greatly extend the range of functions we can integrate by using hyperbolic and trigonometrical and inverse hyperbolic and inverse trigonometrical substitutions. The level of abstraction here is indicative of the progression towards study at undergraduate level, whether as part of a Maths degree or as part of a degree in one of the many subjects that require the study of Maths as part of a university course.

Further Maths A level is a second A level in Maths and is a subject in its own right. The aim is to build upon the skills developed in Maths A level and to increase both the depth and the breadth of subject knowledge. Further Maths an academically rigorous and demanding subject suited to students who are considering university courses in Computer Science, Engineering, Maths, Physics and other highly numerate disciplines or simply for those who really enjoy Maths!
