The Level 3 Mathematical Studies (Core Maths) qualification will consolidate your mathematical understanding, building confidence and competence in applying mathematical techniques to solve a range of problems, as well as introducing new techniques and concepts in preparation for further study and future employment within a broad range of academic, professional and technical fields.
Students will develop mathematical modelling, evaluation and reasoning skills to solve problems which will not be well defined and may not have a unique solution. You will be expected to develop your understanding, communication and enjoyment of mathematics through this course.
Where does the subject lead me?
Mathematical Studies aims to prepare students for the mathematical demands of higher education and work where there is a distinct mathematical or statistical element, but where the mathematical demands do not stretch to a requirement for A-level Mathematics.
