Junior cycle maths encourages students to make connections within maths. The areas that they study are Number, Geometry and trigonometry, Algebra and functions and Statistics and probability. By making connections between the strands in maths we help our students see the importance of maths and how they can relate what they do in the classroom to real world situations.
Students will work with teachers to explore new areas of study and will develop on what they have learnt in primary school to advance their mathematical knowledge. Teachers will use many various methodologies that will encourage students to stretch their thinking and allow students to learn through a variety of means. Students are encouraged to expand their thinking beyond the classroom and look at the world around them and see how the maths that they are learning relate to the world.
