NCSM Stands up for Students and the Leaders, Teachers, and Coaches who Support Them NCSM stands behind quality research and supports the independence and freedom of the mathematics education researchers whose vision and hard work informs the work we do in schools and classrooms nationwide. Sometimes the findings of research challenge the status quo and cause us to question the state of the world as it currently exists.
Further Mathematics Some mathematics students will choose to take an A-level in Further Mathematics which requires taking a further 6 modules to give a second qualification. The grades of the two A-levels will be independent of each other. Four more modules need to be taken; those available vary with different specifications.
Not all schools are able to offer Further Mathematics, due to low student numbers meaning the course is not financially viable, or due to a lack of suitably experienced teachers.
To fulfil the demand extra tutoring is available, with providers such as the Further Mathematics Support Programme. Schools that offer this qualification usually only take this to AS-level, taking three modules, but some students can go further, taking the extra six modules to gain another full A-Level qualification.
Additional Further Mathematics is offered by Edexcel only.
Results and statistics[ edit ] Each module carries a maximum of UMS points towards the total grade and each module is also given a separate grade depending on its score.
The number of points required for different grades are defined below:Why Study Maths? There are many reasons why people choose to study A Level Mathematics. It might be a requirement for what you want to study at university (physics, psychology, economics, computing, and business studies prefer students to have A Level maths if possible).

Refraction of Light.
Refraction is the bending of a wave when it enters a medium where its speed is different. The refraction of light when it passes from a fast medium to a slow medium bends the light ray toward the normal to the boundary between the two media.
