Further Pure with Technology option
Maths - Further Pure

Further Pure with Technology (FPT) is an A Level Further Mathematics B (MEI) minor option that can be studied alongside (or after) studying the Core Pure element of A Level Further Mathematics. It involves the use of a graph plotter, spreadsheet, Computer Algebra System and programming language in the teaching, learning and assessment.

Both AS and A Level Further Mathematics A and Further Mathematics B (MEI) allow students to take additional options (with the candidate’s combination of papers that result in the best grade being used), so FPT could be offered as an additional option to A Level Further Mathematics B (MEI) students. MEI is also offering a free online course for students in the spring term aimed at centres that want to offer it, but are not able to teach it themselves.
