Junior Maths Enrichment goes further in Maynooth


As part of a nationwide Irish Mathematical Trust initiative, over an eight week period in Spring 2017, schools local to Maynooth were invited to select Junior cycle pupils (normally 2nd or 3rd year) who have an interest in and enthusiasm for mathematics to an exciting Junior Mathematics Enrichment programme at NUI Galway, coordinated and delivered by first year BA in Mathematics and Education students, under the direction of Dr. Aisling McCluskey, School of Mathematics.

The pupils showed lively engagement and impressive problem-solving skills in a series of weekly activities in an environment centred on enjoyment of discovery and investigation amongst like-minded peers.

The programme exposed a rich and fertile seam of mathematical talent in junior cycle, supported by a strong network of parents, teachers, students and lecturers.
