Department of Education Maths Curriculum and Syllabus

 

Mathematics is said to be ‘the study of quantity, structure, space and change’. What does that mean in the context of learning mathematics in post-primary school? In the first instance the learner needs essential skills in numeracy, statistics, basic algebra, shape and space, and technology to be able to function in society. These skills allow learners to make calculations and informed decisions based on information presented and to solve problems they encounter in their everyday lives. The learner also needs to develop the skills to become a good mathematician. Someone who is a good mathematician will be able to compute and then evaluate a calculation, follow logical arguments, generalise and justify conclusions, problem solve and apply mathematical concepts learned in a real life situation.....(Department of Education)

 

When the syllabus revision is complete, Junior Certificate Mathematics will comprise material across 5 strands
of study: Statistics and Probability, Geometry and Trigonometry, Number, Algebra, and Functions....
