Project Aims
  • To identify and exploit the advantages of selected software packages for mathematics teaching and learning.

  • To provide a structure by which individual schools within the project can pursue their own individual focus and feed into the main projects.
Indicative Outcomes
  • The development of technology-based support materials and pedagogical approaches for mathematics teaching/learning in TYO and in the Junior Cycle.
  • Establishment of educational networks to develop good practice in the use of ICT both nationally and internationally in support of mathematics teaching and learning.
  • Establishment of partnership networks with the community, industry and business.
