Comment/ analysis on Maths Paper 2 (ORDINARY Level): Jean Kelly, Maths teacher at The Institute of Education.

A very manageable exam. Weaker students will be relieved and would have found the paper very accessible.

Questions were nicely designed and students were led through them in a structured way. The language used was clear and uncomplicated. There was nothing unexpected.

The appearance of financial maths on Paper 2 shows that, once again, there is a lovely cross-over of topics between the two papers.

The construction asked in Question 6 was one that students would have learnt for the Junior Cert. It was quite surprising that a Leaving Cert construction was not asked.

Question 8 was a nice, manageable, topical question on water usage incorporating percentages, angles, pie charts and financial maths.
