# A-Level maths? watch

1. Can anyone tell me if any of these are learnt in A-Level?

Propositional logic: propositions, connectives, truth tables, tautologies, contradictions; predicates, quantifiers; proof techniques (including mathematical induction).

Set theory: sets, set operations, Venn diagrams, set equality, subsets, cardinality. Relations: relations on a set, inverse relations, equivalence relations, orders.

Functions: domain and range, inverse functions, composition of functions, properties of functions.
Number systems: decimal, binary and hexadecimal; floating point representation, rounding error.

Vectors and matrices: vectors, vector operations (sum, scalar multiplication, difference, dot product, norm), matrices, matrix operations (sum, scalar multiplication, difference, multiplication), solving systems of linear equations, inverse of a matrix. Combinatorics: multiplication principle, addition principle, permutations with unlimited repetition, combinations with unlimited repetition.

Discrete probability theory: experiment, sample space, event, finite probability space, probability of an event, equiprobable spaces, conditional probability, independent events.

Statistics: normal distributions, probability, correlation, t-tests.

The bolded ones are in A-level (+statistics 1), and the italic-bolded are in Further Maths. (This is for Edexcel, anyway).
3. Thank you so much for your help. I am going onto study a computing degree which involves all these. I never done A-Level so therefore was worried a little, thinking that I'd not been learnt the right things on my gcse! Is all the A-Level stuff hard to learn?
4. It's a very different composition to A-level. There's no trigonometry or calculus, which are both huge chunks of A-level.
5. This is just based on my A-level Maths knowledge as I haven't done Further Maths yet (I'm doing it this year though) but hope this helps :

If my memory serves me right then to be precise all these are from C4 and these are from S1 (Edexcel). So basically if you want to self-study just need to buy these 2 books C4 and S1 (although some C4 stuffs do require knowledge from other Maths modules )
