Mountmellick Community School
Maths


We use the study of Mathematics to promote logical thinking and develop studentsí capacity to cope with the many numerical transactions involved in most occupations and everyday life.

At Junior Certificate level, the focus is on developing computational skills and on encouraging practical problem-solving.  Senior students, especially at Honours level, deal with the more theoretical aspects of Mathematics, though here also the course strives to develop a problem-solving habit of mind.

Maths teachers in the school include Mr Hogan, Mrs Hogan, Ms Lavelle, Ms Cummins, Ms Dunne, Ms Wafer.
