**A Level Mathematics**

This course covers the Pure Mathematics 2, Statistics 2 and Mechanics 2. This is aimed at A Level Mathematics which must be covered by the end of Year 13. The exam at the end of year 13 covers papers 1, 2 and 3. Questions for papers 1 and 2 can be taken from either AS or A Level pure mathematics content. Paper 3 are questions from Mechanics and Statistics full content.

**Assessment Objectives:**

**AO 1: **Use and apply standard techniques.

Learners should be able to:

- elect and correctly carry out routine procedures
- accurately recall facts, terminology and definitions

**AO 2: **Reason, interpret and communicate mathematically

Learners should be able to:

- construct rigorous mathematical arguments (including proofs)
- make deductions and inferences
- assess the validity of mathematical arguments
- explain their reasoning
- use mathematical language and notation correctly

**AO3:** Solve problems within mathematics and in other contexts

Learners should be able to:

- translate problems in mathematical and non mathematical contexts into mathematical processes
- interpret solutions to problems in their original context, and, where appropriate, evaluate their accuracy and limitations
- translate situations in context into mathematical models
- use mathematical models evaluate the outcomes of modelling in context, recognise the limitations of models and, where appropriate, explain how to refine them
