**Who is the Higher Maths Course For?**

Higher Maths is a common requirements for anyone wishing to puruse a career in science, technology or engineering, as well as for students pursuing technical higher education courses. Students taking Higher Maths should already have completed National 5 Maths, ideally passing with an A or B grade. View the CLASSROOM.

**What is Taught in Higher Maths?**

Exponentials & Logarithms, Trigonometry, Functions, Vectors, Polynomials, Trigonometric Equations, Differentiation, Integration, Straight Lines, Circles, Recurrence Relations. View the full CURRICULUM.

**What Will I Take Away From This Course?**

Higher Maths has a strong focus on Mathematical functions and particularly on introducing students to key Calculus techniques. These are used in many discplines such as engineering, science and finance. Higher Maths, especially the Calculus topics, provide a solid foundation for students wishing to pursue Advanced Higher.

**How Does Higher Maths Compare to National 5 Maths?**

National 5 Maths has a diverse curriculum with a focus on introducing and developing key algebra skills. Higher Maths assumes those algebra skills are already in place and focuses instead on more advanced skills such as Trigonometry, Calculus and Functions.

**What is the Progression From Higher Maths?**

Students who have completed Higher Maths will have good fundamental skills for taking on Advanced Higher Maths if required but will also have the entry criteria for a range of technical higher education courses as well as technical careers.

Hi, I’m Gary, and I'll be your instructor for this course in Higher Mathematics.

I'll be straight with you, I love Math! But I completely get that for most of us it's very challenging, and often frustrating. I'm here to help make it easier for you. I've taught many Higher Maths students. I understand the sticking points and how to help you develop skills and boost your confidence. I have a BSc Honours degree in Pure Mathematics and have been educated in both the UK and the US. I own and run a private tuition business where I've served many hundreds of Maths students.
