MATHEMATICS 9709 (2010) 1 INTRODUCTION The syllabus has been designed to allow Centres flexibility to construct Mathematics courses appropriate to their candidates, in terms of both the content studied and the depth of study. Thus the syllabus enables shorter courses to be constructed leading to the Advanced Subsidiary (AS) qualification and longer courses to be constructed leading to the Advanced Level qualification. Syllabus content is broadly based on previous syllabuses but has been revised to update the syllabus and give coherence. The AS Mathematics syllabus has been designed to be suitable for candidates who would formerly have studied for Additional or Subsidiary Mathematics. The syllabus is intended to provide continuity from O Level or IGCSE Mathematics courses. The content has been divided into two roughly equal halves with candidates taking two papers for AS Mathematics and four papers for the Advanced Level qualification. Candidates for A Level Mathematics take four papers of which two may have been taken at an earlier examination session for an AS Mathematics qualification. Alternatively, candidates may take all four papers for an Advanced Level qualification at the same session. Candidates may take the AS Mathematics qualification only. The syllabus allows Centres flexibility to choose from three different routes to AS Mathematics – Pure Mathematics only or Pure Mathematics and Mechanics or Pure Mathematics and Probability and Statistics. Continuity with the previous A Level Mathematics syllabus has been maintained by allowing Centres to choose from three different routes to A Level Mathematics depending on the choice of Mechanics, or Probability and Statistics, or both, in the broad area of ‘applications’.

MATHEMATICS 9709 (2010) 2 AIMS The aims of the syllabus are the same for all students. These are set out below, and describe the educational purposes of any course based on the Mathematics units for the AS and A Level examinations. The aims are not listed in order of priority. The aims are to enable students to: develop their mathematical knowledge and skills in a way which encourages confidence and provides satisfaction and enjoyment; develop an understanding of mathematical principles and an appreciation of mathematics as a logical and coherent subject;
