I started at Glasgow University in 2005 and graduated with a degree in Zoology in 2009. I then went on to work for the Scottish SPCA as an Animal Care Assistant. In 2011, I volunteered at the China Bear Rescue Centre to help China’s tortured bears.

Intermediate 2 Maths


 This course will provide an experience broadly equivalent in difficulty to Standard Grade Credit level in terms of algebra, trigonometry and geometry and is applicable for those students whom progression to Higher level is not appropriate.


  Students would normally be expected to have attained a Standard Grade General award.


 Three mandatory 40 hour units...

Unit Title, Length and Brief Description

 Mathematics 1 (Int 2) 40 hours (Mandatory) - Topics studied includes calculations involving percentages, using formulae to find volumes of spheres, cones and prisms, linear relationships in the form of sketches and finding the equations of straight lines, multiplication and factorisation of algebraic expressions, finding the length of an arc and the area of a sector of a circle and solution of problems involving circles.

 Mathematics 2 (Int 2) 40 hours (Mandatory) - This unit contains both Mathematical and Statistical content.  The Mathematics content is further trigonometry using the area of a triangle formula and the sine and the cosine rules, and simultaneous linear equations.  The Statistics content includes the use of graphs, charts and tables and the use of simple statistics, such as standard deviation, semi-interquartile range, finding the equation of a regression line and assigning probability to an event.

 Mathematics 4 (Int 2) 40 hours – This unit covers social arithmetic (gross pay, net pay, commission, taxation, National Insurance); IT skills (spreadsheets, logic diagrams, tree diagrams) as well as a compulsory statistical assignment.

 This is a stand-alone course and students would not be expected to study any further Mathematics beyond this level.
