AS and A level specifications in mathematics must encourage students to:

  • understand mathematics and mathematical processes in a way that promotesconfidence, fosters enjoyment and provides a strong foundation for progress tofurther study
  • extend their range of mathematical skills and techniques
  • apply mathematics in other fields of study and be aware of the relevance ofmathematics to the world of work and to situations in society in general
  • use their mathematical knowledge to make logical and reasoned decisions insolving problems both within pure mathematics and in a variety of contexts,and communicate the mathematical rationale for these decisions clearly
  • reason logically and recognise incorrect reasoning
  • generalise mathematically
  • construct mathematical proofs
  • use their mathematical skills and techniques to solve challenging problemswhich require them to decide on the solution strategy
  • recognise when mathematics can be used to analyse and solve a problem incontext
  • represent situations mathematically and understand the relationship betweenproblems in context and mathematical models that may be applied to solvethem
  • draw diagrams and sketch graphs to help explore mathematical situations andinterpret solutions
  • make deductions and inferences and draw conclusions by using mathematicalreasoning
  • interpret solutions and communicate their interpretation effectively in thecontext of the problem
  • read and comprehend mathematical arguments, including justifications ofmethods and formulae, and communicate their understanding•read and comprehend articles concerning applications of mathematics andcommunicate their understanding
  • use technology such as calculators and computers effectively and recognisewhen such use may be inappropriate
