AS/A level Further Mathematics student tuition

The AMSP can provide tuition for students in state-funded schools and colleges who would benefit from studying AS/A level Further Mathematics, in cases where your school/college is having difficulties staffing or timetabling it. We offer full AS or A level tuition, and can also work with you to share the tuition and help you to establish your own provision in future.

Our tuition support is provided through our Live Online Tuition (LOT) programme. Your AMSP Area Coordinator can advise you about this. Please contact them if you would like to set up tuition.

There’s also a series of videos to support your own teaching of AS/A level Further Mathematics.

The AMSP provides real-time online tutorials to support students. Students log in to the online classroom and communicate with the tutor via live text chat, audio link and a shared electronic whiteboard. The tutor and students can also work together on shared maths-relevant software such as spreadsheets and GeoGebra.

The sessions are designed to build on a series of videos that we provide. These were produced by the legacy Further Mathematics Support Programme (FMSP). In addition to the online sessions, students are set exercises to work on between sessions, and receive follow up support from their tutor. Students also have access to extensive, purpose-written online resources on the Integral®Opens a new window website.

Group sizes are small, usually between one and seven students per tutor. Tutors are all experienced teachers of Further Mathematics and are available via email to respond to queries between sessions.

A recording is made of each session so that students can return to and review the material covered at a later date.

We will be offering the following routes through A level and AS Further Mathematics in 2019-20:

AS Further Mathematics

These are for Year 12 students in their first year of an A level course or for year 12 or 13 students wishing to take an AS course of study. All routes support the compulsory pure content of each specification, as well as the following optional components:

AQA

  • Discrete and Mechanics
  • Discrete and Statistics
  • Statistics and Mechanics

Edexcel

Two options from:

  • Decision 1
  • Mechanics 1
  • Statistics 1
  • Further Pure 1

OCR A

  • Discrete and Mechanics
  • Discrete and Statistics
  • Mechanics and Statistics

OCR B(MEI)

Modelling with Algorithms and:

  • Numerical Methods
  • Mechanics

A level Further Mathematics

These are for Year 13 students who have already studied the first year of the course equivalent to the AS. All routes support the compulsory pure content of each specification, as well as the following optional components:

AQA

  • Discrete and Mechanics
  • Discrete and Statistics
  • Statistics and Mechanics

Edexcel

Two options from:

  • Decision 1
  • Mechanics 1
  • Statistics 1
  • Further Pure 1

OCR A

  • Discrete and Mechanics
  • Discrete and Statistics
  • Mechanics and Statistics

OCR B(MEI)

  • Statistics a
  • Mechanics or numerical methods (the one not studied in Year 12)

The courses will start in early September.

The fee for LOT tuition is £365 per student and includes 35 hours of online tuition over a period of 27-30 weeks. To discuss signing your students up for Live Online Tuition, please contact your local AMSP Area Coordinator.

The legacy FMSP produced a large series of short videos to support the content of AS/A level Further Mathematics.These videos are all 5-10 minutes in length and break the content into bitesized peieces. They are designed to introduce students to concepts so that they can learn the material for each section by working through appropriate examples.

Individual videos are provided for each of the four main AS/A level specifications (AQA, Edexcel, MEI and OCR). There are over 1000 videos that have been authored recorded by experienced Further Mathematics teachers.
