Written by senior examiners, this full-colour course companion helps students develop a thorough understanding of the essential mathematical skills required in A Level Physics.

  • Helps students understand how and why mathematical formulae work in physics and gives them the techniques they need to answer the range of exam questions effectively.
  • Provides lots of practical advice, exemplified by numerous physics questions, on how students can build their all-important mathematical understanding which is of great importance in the A Level Physics exams.
  • Topic-based content starts from basic fundamentals and slowly builds skills and understanding, using physics problems as the key worked examples throughout.
  • Includes content on sinusoidal functions, complicated graphs and complex numbers.
  • Detailed explanations within numerous worked examples help students understand the thinking behind each mathematical technique and how and when to use them.
  • Numerous test yourself questions provide plenty of practice and skill reinforcement.
  • Data exercises provide practice in using techniques to handle data and plot results.
  • Quickfire quizzes rapidly reinforce skills and understanding as a topic progresses.
  • Pointers provide hints for refining exam technique and avoiding common mistakes.
  • The material has been mapped against the mathematical requirements criteria for all A Level Physics courses from AQA, Pearson, OCR and WJEC, CCEA, the International Baccalaureate, the Oxford University Physics Aptitude Test and the Cambridge Pre-U.

Gareth Kelly CPhys, MinstP, took a diploma in ionospheric physics before becoming a secondary school teacher and taught Physics at Penglais Comprehensive School, Aberystwyth, for 26 years. He has been involved with A Level and GCSE Physics and Electronics for a major awarding body for almost ten years.

Nigel Wood is an experienced Chief Examiner in A Level Physics for a major awarding body, and was formerly Head of Physics at Dulwich College, London

“Great for WJEC A Level Physics. This improves maths skills for physics as it gives a lot of examples and exercises. It is also suitable for other exam boards.”
