What Maths do you need for A-Level Physics if you do not do A-Level Maths.
I'm currently taking Physics, Biology and Computer Science but no maths A-Level.

People tell me that I'll need to work harder for the maths gap between the A-level and GCSE maths topics so can someone tell me what I need to learn on the maths side for AS and A2 Physics.
I'm studying the new AQA syllabus by the way.

there is a book to help with this --> https://www.amazon.co.uk/New-Level-P.../dp/1782944710
I am using it even though I do A-level maths for the support

Did ASfound out very little complex maths is needed, I did M1 in maths which helped a bit but mostly its just re-arranging and using a calculator correctly and trig and stuff

About to start A2 - would reccomend the CGP book if u take it to A2 -gets more complex!Lots of C2 maths in there--> logs, exponentials etc. so yeah

feel free to ask me more qs, hope this helped u

Physics and Computer Science but no Maths? That's very unusual. What do you want to do at university?
