Maths Subject Information

The Maths Department in Ardscoil Phádraig place a huge emphasis on making Maths interactive, relative and enjoyable for all students. Engagement in Maths is supported throughout the school by our Whole School Numeracy initiative which allows students to discover it’s relevance across all subject areas.

Our Maths Week activities, which take place in October each year, are a highlight of our school year for many students with treasure hunts, games and quizzes offering students further opportunity to develop their problem solving and logical thinking skills.

Our Transition Year Maths programme allows our students to be creative and explore Maths outside of the classroom environment with the development of students creative thinking skills being a key element. While we have seen a huge increase in the number of students opting to sit Higher Level Maths at both Leaving Certificate and Junior Cycle level in recent years, our differentiated approach to teaching and learning in Maths ensures that every student is supported to reach their full potential throughout their time in the school.
