Course overview

What will I learn?

National 5 Maths will build on previous experience in mathematics and numeracy while helping develop greater confidence in the subject and a positive attitude towards further study. The course includes simplification of expressions , evaluation of formulae, solving and manipulating equations, working with graphs, carrying out calculations on the lengths and angles of shapes, trigonometry, geometry, number processes and statistics.

National 5 replaces the Standard Grade Credit and Intermediate 2 qualifications and is viewed as equivalent to both.

National 5 Applications Maths is also available and may be more appropriate for those with limited Maths experience or who require a more practical Maths course. Applicants should apply for Applications under the appropriate course heading.

What qualifications do I need?

Learners would normally be expected to have attained the skills, knowledge and understanding required by prior experience of studying at National 5 level.

Applications will not be processed unless accompanied by a statement detailing previous Maths qualifications/experience and reasons for applying. Selection will take into account both the level of previous study and the supplementary information provided.

What can I do after?

Both National 5 Maths and National 5 Application of Maths are minimum entry requirements for primary and secondary teaching as well as for a variety of other courses. National 5 Maths can also be used to progress to study Higher Maths.

It is the responsibility of applicants to confirm entry requirements for their chosen courses before embarking on National 5 Maths.
