Year 11 Level 2 Certificate in Further Mathematics Course Modules
As well as extending the GCSE algebra, Limiting Sequences, and the Factor Theorem are introduced as new topics to study.
The added content involves Circle Geometry where the circle in not centred on the origin.
This module introduces Differential Calculus and concentrates on finding and using the gradients and turning points of functions.
This is the second of two new topics to be taught for the Level 2 Certificate in Further Mathematics and introduces 2 x 2 matrices, how they can be multiplied and used in matrix transformations.
The additional content is mainly concerned with Trigonometric Identities and Proof.
Functions are used as a tool to solve problems. Piecewise functions are introduced.
This module builds on the GCSE work as well as pulling together various aspects of the Level 2 course. In particular we look at solving trigonometric equations with solutions in more than one quadrant.
