    Hi everyone!

    I'm thinking of doing a maths base EPQ (at our school we start is in July this year so we can research over the summer). I am currently in Y12 and I am doing Maths and Further Maths (C1, C2, S1, FP1, M1 & M2) for Edexcel.

    I wondered if anyone could help me by giving any ideas that I could base my EPQ on. our teacher says it is best to pose a question as your title so it forces you to answer it in your essay which supposedly gives you more marks.

    I'm hoping to do M3 next year too!

    Thanks a lot :-)

    My mate did his on coding, and so did another girl in my further class, if that helps at all

    Thanks drandy, I hadn't thought about that tbh. What did they do with the coding subject in their EPQ if you don't mind me asking?

    One of them taught a class to year 7s on it, can't remember specifics but I think he took them through basic commands etc

    1. Would you suggest an AS in AFM (D2, S3 and M3) or a maths EPQ. Both for enjoyment and for getting in to somewhere like Oxford/Cambridge.
