Why study Further Mathematics?
For students who enjoy mathematics, the study of Further Mathematics provides additional challenge, and the opportunity to explore new mathematical concepts. Students enhance their skills of analysis and mathematical reasoning. Further Mathematics forms a bridge to degree courses with a mathematical foundation such as the sciences, engineering, computing, economics, or, of course, mathematics itself. It develops a rigour of logical argument that is beneficial for success in many other disciplines at University level. Students of Further Mathematics also find that it reinforces and consolidates skills required for the standard mathematics A level, and find it a rewarding and enjoyable subject to study.
