Mathematics at Advanced Higher provides the foundation for many developments in the sciences and in technology as well as having its own intrinsic value. This Course is designed to enthuse, motivate, and challenge learners by enabling them to:

• select and apply complex mathematical techniques in a variety of mathematical situations, both practical and abstract
• extend and apply skills in problem solving and logical thinking
• extend skills in interpreting, analysing, communicating and managing information in mathematical form, while exploring more advanced techniques
• clarify their thinking through the process of rigorous proof

The Course develops and expands a range of mathematical skills. It allows the learner to develop further skills in calculus and algebra. Areas such as number theory (which helps keep the internet secure), complex numbers (the uses of which are ubiquitous, ranging from the solution of equations to the description of electronic circuits) and matrices (used in game theory and economics) are introduced. The learner’s mathematical thinking will also benefit from examples of rigorous proof.
