Internal test of 50 minutes duration on all topics covered once the relevant unit on Edexcel scheme of work is completed. Pure Maths is 62.5% of the Year 12 course. It is assessed through a 2 hour exam (internal) at the end of Year 12. Statistics and Mechanics are 37.5% of the course and are assessed by a 1h15m internal paper at the end of Y12. A suitable calculator is required (e.g. Casio Class Wizz).

This course develops interpersonal skills: Communication – active listening, oral communication, written communication.. Relationship-building skills – teamwork, trust, intercultural sensitivity, self-presentation, conflict resolution and negotiation. Collaborative problem solving – establishing and maintaining shared understanding, taking appropriate action, establishing and maintaining team organisation.

Differentiation – gradients, tangents and normals, increasing and decreasing functions, stationary points, modelling with differentiation.

Integration – finding functions, areas under curves and between curves and lines.
