Junior Certificate Mathematics
If you're doing Junior cert Maths you will have undoubtedly heard of Project Maths, which is a new syllabus and teaching style introduced to make Maths more relevant to real world problems. If you're doing the 2015 exam then you are only the second year of Junior certs to take the new course in its entirety. It's really important that you try to understand all the concepts covered in class as the questions that come up are very variable and so require a good understanding of all parts of the course.
Remember in the exam that attempt marks are giving for any step in the right direction, so remember to attempt every part of the questions you do and make sure to show all your workings.
As the Project Maths course is reletavily recent there are only a limited number of past papers availalbe. Many of the Project Maths papers released are sample papers or pilot school papers and therefore marking schemes are not always available.

Any tips for doing well in Junior certificate Maths ?
Practice, Practice, Practice. Of all subjects Maths you need to constantly be practicing to do well. Pick a topic, study it an then print out some questions, try them and check your answer against the marking scheme. Pay attention to the details and try to avoid basic errors. Make sure you know how to use your calculator and always show your workings in answers as attempt marks will often pass you a question.
