__National 5 Numeracy__

The general aim of this Unit is to develop learners’ numerical and information handling skills to solve real-life problems involving number, money, time and measurement. At this level, real-life problems will have some complex features and be set in contexts which are likely to be unfamiliar to the learner. As learners tackle real-life problems, they will decide what numeracy and information handling skills to use, and how to apply those skills to an appropriate level of accuracy. Learners will also interpret graphical data and use their knowledge and understanding of probability to identify solutions to solve real-life problems involving money, time and measurement. Learners will use their solutions to make and justify decisions. Learners who complete this Unit will be able to: 1 Use numerical skills to solve real-life problems involving money/time/measurement 2 Interpret graphical data and situations involving probability to solve real-life problems involving money/time/measurement In addition, learners will have the opportunity to develop generic and transferable skills for learning, skills for life and skills for work. These include numeracy and thinking skills.

__Intermediate 2 Maths: Craft 1__

This Unit is intended primarily for those candidates who wish to develop their knowledge and understanding of Mathematics at SCQF level 5 with a view to supporting and underpinning their studies in an engineering discipline. In such cases, delivery of the Unit should be set within the context of the award to which it contributes. The Unit is designed to develop aspects of the candidate’s skills in numeracy, geometry, graphical communication, trigonometry and algebra, and to apply these skills in the appropriate engineering context. It is envisaged that the content of each Outcome is delivered and assessed with specific reference to the candidate’s engineering specialism, where appropriate.

__Level 5 Personal Finance__

The Personal Finance Award at SCQF level 5 will develop knowledge and skills to cope confidently and effectively with the types of financial matters individuals are likely to encounter in life beyond school. The award will prepare pupils for financial decision making and managing personal finances throughout their lives, for example, student loans & pensions.

The award covers a range of topics, including calculating and comparing costs, household budgeting, different forms of borrowing, tax and National Insurance, credit cards, bank accounts, exchange rates, interest and inflation rates.

This course focuses on mathematical skills used in daily life, therefore is highly relevant for pupils.
