AQA 7367 
To be studied alongside A Level Mathematics

Course overview

The further mathematics course provides you with a broad mathematical base, enabling you to extend your mathematical skills to additional areas of mathematics not covered by A2 Mathematics. Enjoyment of mathematics is a crucial factor in the decision to choose this subject. 

Course content

All students must study this content.

  • OT1: Mathematical argument, language and proof
  • OT2: Mathematical problem solving
  • OT3: Mathematical modelling

Students must study two of these options.

  • Optional application 1 – mechanics
  • Optional application 2 – statistics
  • Optional application 3 – discrete


The further mathematics course provides the additional mathematical content which is desirable (and in some cases necessary) for students wishing to study mathematics, physics or engineering at university.
