Edexcel AS and A level Mathematics and Further Mathematics (2017)

Supporting great maths teaching

Increased pressure on teaching time means that it’s important you can cover the content of different specifications together. Our specifications are designed to help you co-teach A and AS level, as well as deliver Maths and Further Maths in parallel.

Our new exam papers will deliver everything you’d expect from us as the leading awarding body for maths. They’ll take the most straightforward and logical approach to meet the government’s requirements, and use the same clear design that you’ve told us makes them so accessible, while also ensuring a range of challenge for all abilities.

With the new linear exams your students will want to feel fully prepared and know how they’re progressing.  We’ll provide lots of exam practice to help you and your students understand and prepare for the assessments, including secure mock papers, practice papers and free topic tests with marking guidance.

Change is easier with the right support, so we’ll be on hand to listen and give advice on how to understand and implement the changes. Whether it’s through our launch, Getting Ready to Teach, and Collaborative Networks events or through the renowned Maths Emporium, we’ll be available face to face, online or over the phone throughout the lifetime of the qualification. We’ll also provide you with free materials such as schemes of work, topic tests and progression maps.

Our new A level Maths and Further Maths textbooks retain all the features you know and love about the current series, while being fully updated to match the new specifications. Each textbook comes packed with additional online content that supports independent learning, and they all tie in with the free qualification support, giving you the most coherent approach to teaching and learning.
