Geometry and Trigonometry is one of the strands of the Project Maths Course in the Irish curriculum. Synthetic Geometry and Co-ordinate Geometry are used in real life to help us understand the dimensions and transformations of shapes and figures (lines, triangles, polygons and circles). Synthetic geometry studies shapes by means of axioms and theorems. Co-ordinate geometry studies lines and circles by reference to a fixed set of co-ordinates. Trigonometry is concerned with ‘real life’ measurements of length, angles and circular measure in both two and three dimensions. The use of trigonometry is commonly utilised in the areas of quantity surveying, building and construction, and architecture. This strand is without doubt the most applicable area of the Junior Certificate mathematics syllabus and allows students to gain experience of realistic solutions to real-world problems.Start Course Now
