### What do your A level mathematics lessons look like?

When studying for my A levels, especially in mathematics, lessons usually followed a set routine. New information and examples were written up on the board to be copied down, then using the methods presented at the beginning of the lesson, the class set about attempting to solve a series of similar problems from the textbook. Often, this monotonous way of...### Sequences and Series
