Hi! I was just wondering, what do you learn in further maths and triple science?
I just do higher maths and double science and was wondering what else there is to learn, maybe it would be fun to learn it and potentially get moved up?!

Could someone list all the topics you learn in further and triple (aside from the topics you learn in higher and double)
Also, are there any work books that you could recommend? thank you

Triple science isn't a big step up, in physics the three topics are magnetism, using physics and medical physics. In chemistry there isnare just a whole bunch of random topics, such as alcohol, hydrogen, quantative chemistry, ammonia, water, esters, exothermic reactions, testing for anions and cations, and the periodic table. In biology the topics are humans and the environment, transport, exchange and homeostasis.
Further maths is pretty big step up, but managable. You learn about functions, matrices, indices, gradients, algebra, as n tends to infinity, surds and other stuff too.

You learn more science in triple and it tends to be slightly more advanced than the content in additional science. The content starts to get a little interesting, for example we learned the absolute basics of nuclear physics, biotechnology and organic chemistry in physics, chemistry and biology respectively.

In further maths I think you learn about matrices and basic calculus, among other things.

The exact content will differ by board.

It all blurs together after a while. If you want to closely cover the typical content of triple science the best thing to do is consult the specifications to see what you should learn.

I didn't take further. I took AS maths instead so I don't know exactly what's covered.

IGCSE isn't an exam board. There are several boards that offer IGCSEs.

Forgot to mention that these are topics from aqa triple science and level 2 i GCSE further maths
