Lincoln UTC is the place to study Mathematics!August 20, 2016 11:49 am
Lincoln UTC has proven itself to be the place to study Mathematics. In the A2 results from our first cohort of A Level students, 82% of students studying Mathematics and 60% of students studying Further Mathematics achieved the highest A*-B grades. We are proud to boast a 100% pass rate in both subjects and our students have secured outstanding career pathways, including:
- Sam Newton Pearson – A*A*A* – Physics at The University of Nottingham
- Ewan Murray – A*A*C – Mathematics at The University of York
- Charlotte Jones – AAB – Economics at The University of Sheffield
- George Hackney – ABC – Mathematical Physics at Herriot Watt University, Edinburgh
- Charles Gould – BCC – Mathematics at The University of Dundee
The UTC Mathematics curriculum is broad. We offer:
- AS Mathematics in Year 12
- A2 Mathematics in Year 13
- AS Further Mathematics in both Year 12 and Year 13
- A2 Further Mathematics in Year 13
Universities see Further Mathematics as a golden academic course, often giving preferential treatment to students who have studied this interesting and rewarding qualification. For this reason, we offer the subject at AS to both year groups and our high-quality staffing means that we are able to offer all modules on the course – there are few schools or colleges who can provide that level of expertise! We also study Free Standing Mathematics Qualifications at Level 3 to provide stretch and challenge for students of all abilities.
The Mathematics Department does not sit as a standalone team of specialists. They work closely with experts in Physics and Engineering to ensure that UTC students are able to apply their mathematical knowledge and understanding across a variety of disciplines. It is for this reason that students studying mathematics go on to enter a wide range of career pathways, including: Aerospace Engineering; Computer Science with Artificial Intelligence; Engineering & Physical Science; Mechanical Engineering; Economics; Physics.
However, we understand that at GCSE many students have a passion for mathematics and so we offer Additional Mathematics and Further Mathematics at GCSE in Years 10 and 11, proving our GCSE students with up to 3 GCSEs in mathematics by the end of Year 11.
The UTC has a team of five specialists: Mr Russell Baker; Mr Alan Barker; Dr Griff Dines; Mrs Bethany McCann; Mr Dave Tuhey. The department has specialist teaching and study rooms for mathematics, providing a wide range of resources. Mathematics students can access specialist teaching and support during the working week, from 8.45am until 4.30pm each day. The team are committed to ensuring that our students make outstanding progress from their individual starting points and find pleasure and success in their mathematics studies.
If you have an interest in mathematics we would urge you to pop in and visit us – you won’t be disappointed.
