OCR Further Mathematics AS & A Level
These links have the specificiations and sample assessment materials as well as formula booklets and Teaching and Learning Resources. Scroll down each page and you will see all available sections including some very valuable teaching and learning resources.
You can use OCR’s scheme of work builder to create your own scheme of work.
See also OCR’s very thoughtful guide on moving from modular to linear qualifications, which has many relevant points whichever specification you are using. It will be crucial as the guide points out to provide review and revision opportunities throughout the course. Will Hornby explains here, why OCR have put Mechanics and Statistics on dofferent papers. Note the reference to OCR’s Teaching Order Framework which provides a possible way of splitting the topics between two teachers with one teacher delivering Mechanics and one teacher delivering Statistics.
With the A Level Maths specification, we see an excellent teaching and learning resource, Bridging the gap between GCSE and AS/A Level Mathematics – A Student Guide.
This is quite simply an outstanding resource for students (and their teachers!). Many exercises are provided and the answers are all at the back. OCR have very helpfully provided the document as a Word document.
I do like OCR’s check in tests for GCSE and I see a small number of check in tests and lesson elements on the A Level subject pages. This collection will grow.
You can read OCR’s Guide for the detail on the Check In tests each of which has 10 questions: Questions 1-4 are routine procedural questions and question 5-10 focus on the overarching themes: Mathematical argument, language and proof, Mathematical problem solving and Mathematical modelling. Questions marked with an asterisk are for students on the full two year A Level course.
