What is this course about?

This course has been designed to cover selected topics from the first half of Year 12 in A-level Further Mathematics, both for those learning the material for the first time and those who want to revise it. Further detail about the content covered can be found below

What topics are covered?


  • Methods of proof
  • Mathematical induction o Sums of series
  • Divisibility
  • Matrix results

Polar Coordinates:

  • Conversion between polar and Cartesian coordinates
  • Sketching polar curves
  • Area enclosed by a polar curve

Further Calculus (split into two modules):

  • Volumes of revolution
  • The mean value of a function
