Applied Maths


Leaving Certificate Applied Maths aims to develop the learner’s capacity to use mathematics to model real-world problems. By focusing on all aspects of the problem-solving cycle it is envisaged that learners will move beyond calculating procedures and gain experience in asking appropriate questions, formulating mathematical representations of problems, and interpreting and verifying results.

Through Applied Maths, students should learn to appreciate the extent to which mathematics is relevant in everyday life, generating engagement and interest in the process. It is anticipated that digital technology will be used as a learning tool in some aspects of this course.

How is it assessed?

The Applied Maths assessment is made up of two components; the modelling project (20%) and the final exam (80%)

The Project

The modelling project is based on a brief released each year by the SEC. It involves providing a solution to a modelling problem, and describing the process involved in coming up with this solution.

The Exam

The two and a half hour paper assesses your knowledge and understanding of the course content with a broad range of question types. In order to succeed in this exam, it's important to understand the mathematical terms, concepts, and theories you will learn about in this subject.
