Pupils who decide to study sixth form mathematics should be prepared for a very exciting, nerve-wracking, fretful, fun-filled, occasionally frustrating, but ultimately rewarding couple of years. At least, that is what we aim for in the King's Mathematics Department.
AS and A2 mathematics and further mathematics are not easy courses, in spite of what some newspapers, and talking heads seem to indicate. Thus, for a student to be successful they will require, most obviously and importantly, an interest and enjoyment in the subject. This, allied with superior algebraic skills, should allow the student to emerge triumphant at the end of their course.
Sixth form mathematics is taught by experienced teachers in a generally relaxed setting, where students will be expected to contribute to their own learning, both in the classroom and via independent study.
