    Always thought Mechanics was one of the A level Maths modules

    Yeah, it's a module that we do in both Maths and Physics, but for all intents and purposes, the stuff that we do is just applied Maths.

    Well clearly it's not part of math as a subject - it describes physical laws, not mathematical laws (there is no F=ma law in mathematics). You can't say it's applied math - all of science is basically applied math. I just found it really odd that they teach it in the math curriculum over there - I don't think it belongs there logically.

    Well, what you think it is/isn't is quite irrelevant, as I'm talking about it in the context of the UK curriculum.

    And why should we listen to you when you can't even spell maths properly?

    I find it odd that you drop the s from Maths

    old article, but was linked to it today

    Shocking that something like this can still be used against you, and even worse the employer can see that was the 'offence'

    Well I think it'd be a bit confusing that it's not in the Physics curriculum. These are not laws of mathematics...it's not like learning y=mx+b, which is a mathematical relationship....F=ma means nothing in mathematical terms, it's a physical description.

    That is the physics curriculum, the maths part is a section of the maths curriculum dealing with application of ideas such as calculating acceleration of an object down a slope of a certain angle

    A past paper as an example. No physics knowledge needed, just understand the mathematical principles behind it.

    Exactly. Like I said, you also do a mechanics module in A Level Physics, but that approaches it from a much more Physics based direction (obv), with the actual explanation of the principles, rather than the mathematical representation.

    Tension and weight are very physical principles, not mathematical concepts. Bleh, whatever, I'm a bit of a stiff about these things.

    I understand what you're saying though, and yea I think it makes more sense if you can apply the concept of vectors to a real life situation.
