Written for the AQA AS/A Level Further Mathematics specification for first teaching from 2017, this print Student Book and Cambridge Elevate edition 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. Available online and on tablet devices through the Cambridge Elevate app. Includes answers to aid independent study.
This book has entered an AQA approval process, AQA only approves the student book.
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.
Includes worked solutions to all practice questions, and final answers to all exercises are located at the back of the Student Book.
