The Mechanics taken together is so trivial, with no momentum and no energy, and the Statistics is a weird mish-mash from easy to hard (with the easy in the second half of the A Level). Further Maths students will have a difficult choice ... except they won't, because school will choose their modules for them. I foresee difficulties.Adam Creenhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/08847869366634507731noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-4242439961617529545.post-2900546156071014122016-07-06T18:29:24.179+01:002016-07-06T18:29:24.179+01:00Thanks for your comment.

People who love mechanics think everyone should study it, the same is true of people who love decision maths... <br /><br />I did pure maths A level and a statistics degree at UCL and I don't think I'm an inferior mathematician because I've never studied mechanics. I appreciate that opinions on this differ though.

One disturbing point you made to pick up on: I am very perturbed that one can do a full maths and further maths A-level with the equivalent of only about S1 and M1 in applied maths. One's mathematics is very limited if one has never seriously engaged with mechanics.

I'm big fan of City in the Sky too. I don't really watch much on TV but that series was fascinating.BMa02http://www.blogger.com/profile/00321015464362957272noreply@blogger.com
