Mathematics at A-Level. A Discussion Paper on the Applied Content. No. 93.
Mathematical Association, Leicester (England).
In September 1979, the Mathematical Association in England held a weekend seminar on the scope of Applied Mathematics at A-level, and a subcommittee was established to consider the topic at more length. This paper is the first product of the subcommittee's deliberations. Sections 1 and 2 describe the background to current A-level courses: (1) who takes A-level Mathematics, and what do they go on to? and (2) a resume of current A-level syllabuses. Section 3 discusses the Applied Mathematics which should form a compulsory component of a single-subject A-level Mathematics exam, and section 4 presents a proposal for a single-subject A-level Mathematics course. An appendix contains data on students who take the A-level course. (MNS)
