What is Mathematics?

The One Year IGCSE content includes number, algebra, geometry, probability, statistics, calculus (only differentiation and its application to motion of a particle).  The One Year IGCSE course is suitable for students who move to study with us from Year 10 at U.K. schools and for international students requiring a one year course before progressing to A-level or BTEC.

What will I gain from studying the subject?

The IGCSE specification in mathematics enables students to:

  • Develop fluent knowledge, skills and understanding of mathematical methods and concepts
  • Acquire, select and apply mathematical techniques to solve problems
  • Reason mathematically, make deductions and inferences and draw conclusions
  • Comprehend, interpret and communicate mathematical information in a variety of forms appropriate to the information and context.
  • Recall, select and apply mathematical formulas

and provides a strong mathematical foundation for A-Level and beyond.
