S1-S3: The course aims to develop each pupils awareness of the importance of maths in everyday life and ensures pupils acquire a full range of numeracy skills and abilities required for the modern world and other areas of the curriculum. We motivate pupils and make learning enjoyable while meeting the needs of all pupils and enabling them to achieve their highest potential in maths.
National 3,4 &5: The courses offered in mathematics provide progression from the experiences and outcomes you have covered up to the end of S3. The overall aim of these courses is to develop a range of mathematical operational and reasoning skills that can be used to solve both mathematical and real life problems in an engaging and enjoyable way.
Higher: The aim of this course is to build upon and extend students’ mathematical learning in the areas of algebra, geometry and trigonometry and to introduce students to elementary calculus. The Higher Mathematics Course enables learners to select and apply mathematical techniques in a variety of mathematical situations. Learners will be able to interpret, communicate and manage information in mathematical form.
Advanced Higher: The Advanced Higher Mathematics Course enables learners to select and apply complex mathematical techniques in a variety of mathematical situations. Learners interpret, analyse, communicate and manage information in mathematical form, while exploring more advanced techniques. It is particularly useful for students who may go on to study degree courses that involve Mathematics.
