Further Pure 1 (FP1) is a Further Mathematics module for the Edexcel Exam board. It expands upon the foundations of pure mathematics laid out in C1 and C2 and then introduces several new techniques. FP1 cannot contribute to the Mathematics A-level, but it does contribute towards the Further Mathematics A-level.

Note: This book is so you can gain an alternative explanation for the concepts described and it should NOT replace your FP1 textbook!
