 At Colaiste Chu Chulainn our Junior Certificate Mathematics classes aim to

  • develop the mathematical knowledge, skills and understanding needed for continuing education, for life and for work
  • develop the skills of dealing with mathematical concepts in context and applications, as well as insolving problems
  • support the development of literacy and numeracy skills

In first year our maths classes are of mixed ability and all students complete the common introductory course. In second and third year maths is co-timetabled, this allows for streaming of classes if needed to allow students to work at a level and pace to allow them to achieve success
