This Course enables learners to acquire mathematical and numerical skills and apply them in a variety of real-life situations. In addition, learners will develop thinking skills and will gain experience in making informed decisions.
Applications of Mathematics: Manage Money and Data (National 3)
The general aim of this Unit is to enable learners to apply their skills, knowledge and understanding of mathematics and numeracy to manage money and data in real-life contexts. Learners will build on their mathematical and numerical skills to determine factors affecting income and expenditure, budgeting and saving. Learners will also organise, present and interpret data based on real-life contexts.
Applications of Mathematics: Shape, Space and Measures (National 3)
The general aims of this Unit is to enable learners to apply their skills, knowledge and understanding of shape, space and measures in real-life contexts. Learners will build on their mathematical and numerical skills by using measures and elementary geometry to tackle real-life situations.
Numeracy (National 3)
The general aim of this Unit is to develop learners’ numerical and information handling skills to solve simple, real-life problems involving number, money, time and measurement. As learners tackle real-life problems, they will use their knowledge of number processes, information handling and probability to make informed decisions.
Conditions of award
To achieve the National 3 Applications of Mathematics Course, learners must pass all of the required Units. National 3 Courses are not graded.
