Surfaces

The Nuffield Advanced Mathematics course took advantage of computer graphics programmes to introduce into the A-level course an option of studying surfaces, their gradients and other properties. This field had traditionally been the subject of first year university courses. Students who attempted this option were...

The History of Mathematics

This Nuffield Advanced Mathematics option consists of six units of work, each on a different theme. Students had the opportunity, as part of their coursework, to develop an aspect of interest from one of the themes into a longer project. These topics were chosen to relate the learning in an A-level mathematics...

Mathematics, Music and Art

This Nuffield Advanced Mathematics option consisted of two units of work on different themes. A likely model for coursework was that students would develop an aspect of interest from one of the themes into a longer project.

There are a variety of types of topic within the chapters of this book. In the ‘Music...

Nuffield Advanced Mathematics Resources File

The Nuffield Advanced Mathematics Resources file provided supporting material for four types of calculator and for the spreadsheet, Excel.

The program listings in the calculator sections were designed to be transparent and easy to understand. They followed the algorithms in the Nuffield texts as closely as...

Mathematics Reader

The Nuffield Advanced Mathematics reader provided articles as background or extensions to topics covered elsewhere in the course. The aim was to encourage students to make further study of the development and applications of the ideas about which they were learning. This was one of the ways by which the course team...

Nuffield Advanced Physics: Foundation Unit

Published by the Nuffield Foundation, the Advanced Physics Foundation Unit was designed to help students progress from GCSE science to the Nuffield course as it was in the 1990s. The physics ideas, questions and checklists in chapters four and five were included to deal with the physics of four of the first-year...
