The Advanced Higher Mathematics course develops, deepens and extends the mathematical skills necessary at this level and beyond.

Throughout this course, candidates acquire and apply operational skills necessary for exploring complex mathematical ideas. They select and apply mathematical techniques and develop their understanding of the interdependencies within mathematics. Candidates develop mathematical reasoning skills and gain experience in making informed decisions. The skills, knowledge and understanding in the course also support learning in technology, science, and social studies. The importance of logical thinking and proof is emphasised throughout the course.

Study at Advanced Higher Maths level will provide excellent preparation for your studies when at university. Some universities may require you to gain a pass at AH Maths to be accepted onto the course of your choice. The AH Maths course is fast paced so students must do their very best to keep on top of their studies.

Students will be introduced to topics such as:

- The Binomial Theorem
- Differential calculus
- Integral calculus
- Complex Numbers
- Sequences and Series
- Matrices
- Matrices
- Vectors
- Formal Proof
- Properties of Functions
- Number Theory

The course assessment has two components.

Component 1: question paper — paper 1 (non-calculator)

Component 2: question paper — paper 2

Every student studying Advanced Higher Mathematics will have access to Mathematics booklets, textbooks, a notes jotter and homework resources. All students are members of the mathematics digital team which contains a wealth of resources such as, course outlines, video tutorials, mathematics notes, homework, and revision materials.
