Ousedale has a proud tradition of nurturing excellent mathematicians at A Level, in particular those studying Further Maths. Over recent years students taking Further Maths have successfully gone on to study Mathematics or a mathematically related degree at some of the country’s top universities including Cambridge, Warwick, Durham, Imperial College, Bristol and Leeds.Year 13 students have recently benefited from 2 courses run by the Further Maths Support Programme to help prepare them for their exams this summer and future courses. Two recent events include:
Problem Solving Conference at Warwick University
Five Year 13 students attended this conference where they were given the opportunity to use their mathematical knowledge to solve problems and discover more about Maths at university. Lectures and seminars gave students an insight into the nature of the topics they will meet in the future and advice about how to tackle problems typically found on STEP and AEA papers. Offers for Maths at Cambridge and Warwick typically include these examinations.
Complex Numbers Seminar held at Ousedale School
Students were able to work with other Further Mathematicians from other Milton Keynes schools and get to grips with a significant part of the Further Maths syllabus. Students discovered the power of Complex Numbers; from understanding the concept of imaginary numbers to working with them to solve polynomial equations and transforming them into the modulus and argument form and producing Argand diagrams. Students worked in groups sharing knowledge and ideas to solve problems and activities.
Complex Numbers is a fundamental topic in higher mathematics and as a result of the seminar that the FMSP provided, Ousedale students are able to extend their learning beyond the A Level syllabus and deepen their understanding.
