National 3

Equivalent to Foundation level at Standard Grade, the National 3 course consists of three units.

money
Manage Money and Data

The general aim of this Unit is to enable learners to apply their skills, knowledge and understanding of mathematics and numeracy to manage money and data in real-life contexts.

Learners will build on their mathematical and numerical skills to determine factors affecting income and expenditure, budgeting and saving.

Learners will also organise, present and interpret data based on real-life contexts

measure
Shape, Space and Measures

The general aims of this Unit is to enable learners to apply their skills, knowledge and understanding of shape, space and measures in real-life contexts.

Learners will build on their mathematical and numerical skills by using measures and elementary geometry to tackle real-life situations.

numeracy
Numeracy

The general aim of this Unit is to develop learners’ numerical and information handling skills to solve simple, real-life problems involving number, money, time and measurement.

As learners tackle real-life problems, they will use their knowledge of number processes, information handling and probability to make informed decisions.

assessment
Assessment

Practical units and critical activity will be assessed in school on a continuous basis throughout the course and will be subject to external verification by a moderator from the SQA.

National 4

Equivalent to General level at Standard Grade, the National 4 course consists of three units with an added value practical activity project.

formulae
Expressions and Formulae

The general aim of this Unit is to develop skills linked to straightforward mathematical expressions and formulae.

These include the manipulation of abstract terms, the simplification of expressions and the evaluation of formulae. The Outcomes cover aspects of algebra, geometry, statistics and reasoning.

geometry
Relationships

The general aim of this Unit is to develop skills linked to straightforward mathematical relationships.

These include solving equations, understanding graphs and working with trigonometric ratios. The Outcomes cover aspects of algebra, geometry, trigonometry, statistics and reasoning.

numeracy
Numeracy

The general aim of this Unit is to develop learners’ numerical and information handling skills to solve straightforward, real-life problems involving number, money, time and measurement.

As learners tackle real-life problems, they will decide what numeracy skills to use and how to apply these skills to an appropriate level of accuracy.

Learners will also interpret graphical data and use their knowledge and understanding of probability to identify solutions to straightforward real-life problems involving money, time and measurement. Learners will use their solutions to make and explain decisions.

assessment
Assessment

Practical units and critical activity will be assessed in school on a continuous basis throughout the course and will be subject to external verification by a moderator from the SQA.

Added Value

The general aim of this Unit is to enable the learner to provide evidence of added value for the National 4 Mathematics Course through the successful completion of a test which will allow the learner to demonstrate breadth and challenge.

National 5

Very similar to National 4 but taken to a more advanced level, developing ideas in greater depth and detail.

function
Expressions and Formulae

The general aim of this Unit is to develop skills linked to mathematical expressions and formulae.

These include the manipulation of abstract terms, the simplification of expressions and the evaluation of formulae. The Outcomes cover aspects of number, algebra, geometry and reasoning

trigonometry
Relationships

The general aim of this Unit is to develop skills linked to mathematical relationships.

These include solving and manipulating equations, working with graphs and carrying out calculations on the lengths and angles of shapes. The Outcomes cover aspects of algebra, geometry, trigonometry and reasoning.

statistics
Applications

The general aim of this Unit is to develop skills linked to applications of mathematics.

These include using trigonometry, geometry, number processes and statistics within real-life contexts. The Outcomes cover aspects of these skills and also skills in reasoning
