The aim of Advanced Higher Mathematics is to extend further students' mathematical experience in Pure Maths, as well as providing an opportunity to study some Applied Maths. It is particularly useful for students who may go on to study degree courses that involve Mathematics.
|Unit 1||Unit 2||Unit 3|
|Differentation||Further Integration||Matrix Algebra|
|Integration||Complex Numbers||Futher Sequences and Series|
|Properties of Functions||Sequences and Series||Ordinary differential Equations|
|Matrices||Number Theory and methods of Proof||Further Number Theory and Proofs|
To gain the overall award students must pass written assessments in all three units of the course and an external assessment. There is a single SQA external exam paper. A prelim, which is of the same form as the SQA external exam, takes place under exam conditions in February.

The study of Higher Mathematics develops logical reasoning, analysis, problem-solving skills and the ability to think in abstract ways, as well as offering opportunities for creativity. It is a rich and stimulating subject with the capacity to engage and fascinate learners and has a wide applicability to science, engineering, technology, business, industry and not least to everyday life. Mathematics is an ever expanding body of knowledge, skills, concepts and techniques essential in the efficient handling of information and the solution of problems.
Students may progress to Advanced Higher Mathematics or exit to higher or further education, using either the qualification as a general or specific entry requirement for mathematics, engineering, or science HNC/D or degree courses.

Curriculum for Excellence has given the opportunity for all educators to work together. All teachers now have a responsibility for promoting the development of Numeracy. With an increased emphasis upon Numeracy for all young people, teachers will need to revisit and consolidate Numeracy skills throughout schooling. To this end I feel that it is important that "we" (all staff at Carluke High) deliver a consistent approach to "our" pupils. Pupils always have difficulties with transferable skills and if we can deliver consistent approaches of Numeracy across the school we will be helping our pupils become successful learners.
This information booklet has been produced to inform parents/carers and teachers how the Numeracy Outcomes from Curriculum for Excellence are taught within the Maths Department at Carluke High School.
It is hoped that use of the information in the booklet will help our parents/carers. You will hopefully be given an insight into the way number topics are being taught to your children in the school, making it easier for you to help them with their homework, and as a result improve their progress.
