The beauty of Maths is that it is a skill that can be applied to so many areas. Some of civilisation’s most prized and proud achievements are wholly reliant on Mathematics. From planes flying seamlessly through the air, to the availability of complex medicines, even the laptops and phones we all now use so freely: all of these increasingly vital commodities rely on the use and study of numbers.
As well as developing a comprehensive understanding of complex mathematic theory and rules, students learn how to apply rational and logical thought processes which can be applied across so many other areas of learning and life skills.
The Maths Department at The Institute of Education includes some of the highest qualified and most experienced teachers in Ireland, who are well known in education circles for their expertise and their ability to breathe new life into their subject for students. Many are the authors of Junior and Leaving Certificate textbooks for Maths and Applied Maths and frequently consult with the State Examination Commission and correct exam papers.
