“Algebraic symbols are used when you don’t know what you are talking about!” Philip Schnoebelen
We currently offer S5/6 pupils the opportunity to study Personal Finance at Intermediate 1 level in conjunction with the Intermediate 1 Mathematics course.
The new SQA qualifications for Mathematics at National 4/5 are at the same SCQF levels as Lifeskills Mathematics at National 4/5 and therefore should have parity of esteem.
As we develop and extend our CfE courses, we would like to give S5/6 pupils the opportunity to study Lifeskills Mathematics at National 4 & 5 levels as an alternative to traditional Mathematics courses.
Lifeskills Mathematics Courses should develop the Operational skills that are immediately useful for life and work.
