Maths

The Junior Cert Project Mathematics course was introduced with the aim of developing proficiency in problem solving and dealing with Mathematical concepts in applications and context. One of the overall aims is to foster a positive attitude in the learner towards the subject by making the Maths more applicable to everyday life.

Students over the 3 years will study 5 strands: Statistics and probability; Geometry and Trigonometry; Number; Algebra and Functions. All first years do the Common Introductory Course which is the minimum course to be covered at the start of junior cycle.

Students in Griffeen Community College have engaged thoroughly with Project Maths and have bridged the gap from Primary to Post-Primary Mathematics with relative ease. Along with taking on a relatively new and extended curriculum, students have participated in the Bebras challenge which involves computational thinking. They have also taken part in the ‘MathsEyes’ competition whereby students must capture images of the Maths they see around them everyday. They will also be participating in the Irish Junior Maths Competition which is in association with the Irish Maths Teachers Association.
