Maths Paper 2 (O): A very manageable exam
Reaction to Leaving Cert 2018 Maths Paper 2 (Ordinary Level) by Jean Kelly, Maths teacher at The Institute of Education.
While more challenging than Friday’s Ordinary Level paper, this was a very manageable exam.
As expected, there was a lot of probability and statistics on the paper.
Students will have loved the trigonometry question in Section B.
The language used on the paper was clear and concise and students were prompted in the right direction.
There were a couple of tricky parts that students would have found slightly more challenging. Question 5, Part B 2, would have challenged students, but there was nothing that students could not have attempted.
