  • DESCRIPTION

    Written for the AQA AS/A Level Further Mathematics specification for first teaching from 2017, this print Student Book covers the Mechanics content for AS and A Level. It balances accessible exposition with a wealth of worked examples, exercises and opportunities to test and consolidate learning, providing a clear and structured pathway for progressing through the course. It is underpinned by a strong pedagogical approach, with an emphasis on skills development and the synoptic nature of the course. Includes answers to aid independent study. This book has entered an AQA approval process.

  • Contents
  • FEATURES
    • This book has entered an AQA approval process.

    • Written specifically for the 2017 qualifications, so teachers and learners can be confident that the content and aims of the specifications are comprehensively covered.

    • Frequent assessment opportunities to support the linear courses, including levelled practice questions, past paper questions, cross-topic review exercises and practice papers.

    • Strong pedagogical focus, with an emphasis on the important overarching skills integral to the 2017 AS/A Level (problem solving, modelling and proof), as well as features to tackle common misconceptions.

    • Emphasis on developing synoptic links between pure and applied areas of maths, helping students to build a coherent mathematical understanding.

    • Free downloadable Schemes of Work (not in the AQA approval process) are available on our website to assist with teacher planning.

    • Answers to all exercises are located at the back of the Student Book.
