# Most interesting topic in further maths. Watch

1. What is the most interesting topic(in your opinion) in A-level further maths? - any exam board
2. Almost everything in D1. Graphs, networks, algorithms.. so much Maths to be explored, and the practical applications are obvious and no further assumptions or anything like that are needed.

There's even a Maths module dedicated to graphs and networks in the third year of my degree - I am looking forward to that one.
3. I like the multivariable calculus / differential geometry from mei fp3.
4. For me it's currently 1st and 2nd order differential equations from FP2 Edexcel. Having said that, I haven't covered some topics which seem popular like Vectors from FP3 and Taylor/Maclaurin series which look interesting

Bring on the hate!

Seriously though I love D1. Don't get why everyone dislikes it
5. Euler's identity?
6. 1st and 2nd order differential equations FP3 AQA, actually pretty much all FP3.
7. Probably Maclaurin's series and reduction formulae in FP2. Group theory is also becoming one of my favorites.
8. MEI FP3 has some lovely looking chapters (Diff Geometry, Multivariable Calculus, Groups) which I wish I had the time to study.

Of the modules I have studied, DEs or linear algebra topics probably win.

Is D1 quite linked to computer science then? Or is it completely unrelated?

It is definitely linked to computer science

I don't know enough about Computer Science to give a good answer to that.

Algorithms seem pretty similar to coding though.
13. M5 rotational motion
14. Edexcel FP1 Series and proof by induction, FP2 Mclaurin and taylor series is nice too.

My favourite topics would be:

From pure:
• Integration (truly an art)
• Differential equations
• Vectors + matrices
• Complex numbers
• Proof by induction
From mechanics:
• Statics and centres of mass
• Dynamics
• Oscillations
From stats:
• Probability distributions
• Hypothesis testing
• Expectation algebra
16. - Integration
- Differential equations
- Complex numbers
- Matrices
- Proof by induction (a useful tool)
- Vectors
- Telescoping sums (or 'the method of differences')

And all of M3, M4 and M5
