University of Bristol
Some of the content will be found on the Further Maths syllabus or even outside the A-level framework. What matters is your ability to address new ideas quickly, rather than any first-hand experience of the content. Mathematics is the key to the sciences. It provides many of the tools used in research and management as well as being a powerful means of communicating ideas and solving problems. This stream will offer you an opportunity to develop the skills we look for in mathematics applicants, and also to see how the subject develops as you progress from A-level to university. Lectures will cover areas of general mathematical interest. There will also be considerable student activity. We will cover specific topics such as proof, group theory and cryptography as well as styles of questions such as STEP and MAT. You will come away with an overview of what mathematics is like at university level, an understanding of how it differs from other STEM subjects, and knowledge of how to enhance your UCAS application. You will also gain a brief insight into the study of engineering mathematics at Bristol.
