Mathematical Applications for the Leaving Certificate Applied is intended to prepare students for life, work, further education and a world where skills and knowledge require constant updating. The course seeks to consolidate and improve students’ mathematical knowledge, skills and concepts through practical, analytical, problem solving applications and through integration with other modules.
The modules reflect the applied nature of the Leaving Certificate Applied programme. They start with the students’ experiences and seek to raise their enthusiasm for mathematics through the achievements and the skills they develop in dealing with mathematics in everyday life, work and play. Students are encouraged to develop a work ethic where quality, accuracy and dependability are important.
The revised module desciptor below is for students entering LCA Year 1 in September 2020 as per circular 0061/2019.
