Description
Oxford Learning is one of the leading distance education providers in the United Kingdom and internationally, and along with our partners in education, promotes quality home study education world wide. Our online distance learning programmes encompass A-Level and Diploma level courses. As part of your course you will have access to the tutor department who are able to support and mentor you throughout the learning process. Our students come from varied backgrounds, differing levels of education, and every continent in the world. Our courses give you the confidence to achieve your academic goals, and give you new and further knowledge or, as with many of our past students, a new career path. We invite you to take a look at the reviews past students have left, and look forward to welcoming you as an Oxford Learning student soon. Your qualification from Oxford Learning will show your respected and exceptional level of education.

Benefits

  • Full tutor support included
  • Make your own study schedule and take advantage of online tutoring hours
  • Obtain a certified diploma once you finish the course.

Details

The course is designed to give you a well rounded knowledge of the subject and to give you the ability to carry on your studies at a higher level. At Level 3 you are not required to have any previous knowledge of the subject, as the materials will take you from no previous knowledge up to Level 3. For Level 5/HND subjects you will be required to have studied at Level 3 or above before enrolment.
Suitable for:
Suitable for: this course is suitable for all students over the age of 17. Students can study on this course no matter where you are in the world. The course is made up of various units and each build up your knowledge base of the subject. Courses are all delivered in english.

A Level in Mathematics (AS) 8371

By the end of your course, you will be able to work with complex functions and understand how to calculate forces in mechanics. You will cover topics such as geometry, calculus, trigonometry and algebra and gain the ability to manipulate figures, and use abstract reasoning and logic in problem solving.

Format of Course
There are many modules that make up A-Level Mathematics. Oxford College offers the main modules as follows:

  • Core 1
  • Core 2
  • Mechanics 1
  • Core 3
  • Core 4
  • Mechanics 2

The first three modules constitute AS Level and the later three modules are A2 Level.
Each module is presented separately. The content of the modules have references to Edexcel Modular Mathematics textbooks, which will need to be purchased in conjunction with the course.
The course builds up understanding of key mathematical concepts gradually and sequentially. Topics such as differentiation and integration are covered in all the Core modules and form part of the essential mathematical toolkit needed for higher study.

For each module there are two or three formal tutor-marked assessments which, when completed, should be sent to your tutor, via e-mail or conventional post.
All of the information within the units is written in line with the requirements of the Edexcel examination board specification and the demands of the examination. All units are broken down into clear subject topics, and students should spend the amount of time studying for each topic as advised by their course tutor. Each topic module has been written for ease of understanding and topic coverage may be of different length and difficulty depending on the level of detail and information required. You will need to study the modules in the sequence provided.

The AS and A2 modules link together and assessment is all done by examination as there is no coursework option.

Mathematics has a distinct vocabulary, notation and terminology all of its own - for many mathematics is a language. You are expected not only to recognise and understand notation and vocabulary in examination papers, but use them correctly in your answers. If you have problems remembering these it is a good idea to write them on index cards or to develop a file of key words as you go along in order to help you learn them.
