Standard Grade Courses are available at Foundation, General and Credit level. The four areas covered in Standard Grade are: number and money, measurement and shape, relationships and statistics.
At Foundation level, learners are asked to interpret and communicate mathematical information in the form of straightforward tables, graphs and scale drawings; and to make sensible use of a calculator in carrying out whole number, decimal and percentage calculations in routine problems. They also learn how to to select and apply strategies such as trial and error.
At General level, learners also tackle routine problems such as those involving elementary trigonometry, statistics and algebra and to solve problems in straightforward, but not necessarily familiar, contexts.
At Credit level, learners are also required to interpret and communicate mathematical information in tabular, graphical and more abstract forms and to apply problem solving strategies in theoretical contexts.
The Standard Grade Mathematics Course is at three levels:
