GCSE Options include:
The OCR Level 3 Free Standing Mathematics qualification in Additional Mathematics gives students an introduction to the mathematics studied in AS and A Level modules. Taught alongside GCSE Mathematics in Years 10 and 11, it is designed as an enrichment programme for students who will be high achieving at GCSE (9-1). Although it is not a GCSE it will give students an excellent grounding for their future studies.
This FSMQ builds on the skills, knowledge and understanding acquired during the GCSE (9–1) course. It consists of four main ‘pure’ mathematics topics, each of which contains an ‘applied’ dimension, and two numerical topics, all underpinned by an algebra section.
The single paper will assess content covering
• Coordinate Geometry
• Pythagoras and Trigonometry
• Numerical Methods
• Exponentials and Logarithms
- Opportunities to attend Royal Institution masterclasses
- Representing Crosfields School in local Maths competitions, ‘Maths Feast’ and UKMT Team challenges
