# How can I get \maketitle to create a separate title page with the article class?

I am working on a maths assignment and new to using LaTeX. I have written the assignment up but I would like the title page to be its own page. Currently my title page is a few lines generated by \title and \author but it then goes straight on to my first \section content.

My assignments \documentclass is article.

The code that generated the title and section is this:

\begin{document}
\maketitle


How can I create the title page so it is completely on its own separate page and not shared with the section?

The article class recognises the titlepage option, which forces the \maketitle command to create a separate page.
\documentclass[titlepage]{article}
