# Junior Certificate - Mathematics

## Text & Tests 1 Project Maths

**Text & Tests 1**** Project Maths Common Introductory Course*** *covers the complete Common Introductory Course for first-year mathematics as recommended by the Department of Education and Skills. It provides a comprehensive and solid basis for the further study of maths at second level. It contains a broad range of innovative and searching questions.

Students are introduced to new topics in a way that is appropriate to mixed ability first-year classes. This avoids the difficulties in taking any topic all the way to Junior Certificate examination standard in first year.

It follows the spirit and objectives of **Project Maths** where the understanding and development of skills are of equal importance. The presentation of problems in a variety of contexts helps to achieve this.

This is a high quality production both in terms of presentation and maths content.

This book provides a very cost effective way to implement **Project Maths**, it can be passed on to incoming first-year students as each topic will be revised and extended in **Text & Tests 2 (Higher) and Text & Tests 2 (Ordinary)**. There is no need to retain this book beyond first year.

The new publishing structure will allow students to start the higher-level course at the beginning of second year and so allow the course to be taught in a more time-efficient and effective way.

There is sufficient material in this book to keep even the best first year classes fully occupied for the year.

A **For The problem-solver**... page is included at the end of each chapter. In this page students will encounter the type of question that should develop their problem-solving skills.
