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.
This unit forms part of the National 5 Mathematics course but can also be studied as a stand alone unit. The National 5 qualification enables learners to acquire and apply operational skills necessary for developing mathematical ideas through symbolic representation and diagrams. They will select and apply mathematical techniques and will develop their understanding of the interdependencies within mathematics.
You will require completion of a National 4 Mathematics course, relevant component units or an equivalent course.
On successful completion of this course, you could progress to the Higher Mathematics course.
