• DESCRIPTION

Written for the OCR AS/A Level Further Mathematics specification for first teaching from 2017, this print Student Book covers the Statistics 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.

• Contents
• FEATURES
• 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 are available on our website to assist with teacher planning.

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