  • Highers, National Qualifications & Units

Why take this course?

This unit forms part of the Advanced Higher Mathematics course but can also be studied as a stand alone unit. The Advanced Higher qualification enables learners to develop skills in selecting and applying complex mathematical techniques in a variety of situations requiring knowledge of mathematics. These skills will enable progression to further learning and to employment.

The general aim of the Unit is to develop advanced knowledge and skills in algebra and calculus that can be used in practical and abstract situations to manage information in mathematical form.


What you will experience

You will cover the use of mathematical operational skills, linking to methods in algebra and calculus.

The Outcomes cover partial fractions, standard procedures for both differential calculus and integral calculus, as well as methods for solving both first order and second order differential equations. The importance of logical thinking and proof is emphasised throughout.
