This seminar will draw together recent and ongoing research on A-level mathematics, and mathematics in A-levels, in the context of curriculum and assessment reforms and an ongoing government commitment to maths for all to 18. The Nuffield-funded Rethinking the Value of Advanced Mathematics Participation (REVAMP) project has utilised a range of secondary datasets and a large national survey to investigate A-level Mathematics from different perspectives. I will report briefly on four strands from this project and, if time allows, will discuss findings from ongoing analysis of the mathematical demands of new science A-levels raising questions about quantitative demands in these disciplines for post-16 students.
