Topics Covered

Day 1

Probability and Statistics is a huge chapter that we will break up over 5 days. Day 1 is permutation, combinations and basic probability.

Day 2

We will finish off basic probability and include use of sets, conditional probability, and independent events. Much more technical material than day 1.

Day 3

We will look at expected value and Bernoulli trails. we will start into Statistics with averages.

Day 4

We will go through all the types of diagrams that can come up with special attention on scatter plots. This will lead us to correlation and line of best fit.

Day 5

We will look at standard deviation and how it is used. We will also put in time and effort at Hypothesis testing.

Extra

A calculator is essential.

Day 1

On the first day we will concentrate on Functions. How to know what a function is, the types of functions and how to use them. We will go through different types of graphs. We will look at composition of function and inverse functions

Day 2

We will start into the applications of Differentiation.

We will look at the chain, product and quotient rules. We will also spend time on how to differentiate logs and e. We will start applications of Differentiation with slopes.

Day 3

More on the applications of Differentiation. How to know whether a function is increasing and decreasing. How to find the turning points. We will look at distance, speed and acceleration.

Day 4

We will spend the whole class at max/min problems. I will go through a lot of examples.

Day 5

We will do some more on cubic equations and we will look at rates of change questions.

Extra

You will need to bring a calculator and a maths tables is essential. I will include notes on Integration which we will do on Day 5 if we get a chance.

Day 1

Paper 2 had 2 very important topics that will take us the first 3 days. Probability and Statistics are vital and you cannot run from. Day one is one arrangements and basic probability.

Day 2

We will look at probability and sets, relative frequency and expected values. We will start into stats with averages.

Day 3

We will look at histograms, pie charts, line plots, stem and leaf and especially scatter plots and correlation. A maths set would be helpful but a ruler vital. Last bit of stats is range and standard deviation. Need a calculator.

Day 4

Huge part of paper 1 is functions, graphs and differentiation. We will look at functions and their uses. We will draw linear, quadratic and cubic graphs.

Day 5

The last day will be on differentiation and how it is used to find slopes and turning points. Last topic is how differentiation is used to find speed and acceleration.

Extra

You will need a ruler and a calculator. If you have some graph paper that would be great too.

FAQ's

The course is for Leaving cert AND Junior cert students doing their exams in the summer of 2020.

Live and interactive online.

The course starts on Monday 6th April. Normally the course runs for 1 week. Due to the exceptional circumstances we find ourselves in we have decided to divide the course in two. Part one will finish on Friday 10th. Part 2 will start on 13th and finish on 17th April. This will allow more time off for students during the course.

See the timetable above!

For Leaving certs we have a timetable from which you can choose which subjects you want to do. So for example at 9am you can choose between Economics  or Biology. You pick one and do that subject live and interactive for the 5 days of the course at the same time. When you are finished doing that subject you can then choose another subject at the 10.25am slot.

For Junior certs there is one subject on at each time slot so you  do that subject live and interactive for the 5 days.

No. The topics covered in both classes will be the same. These are to give you a choice.

Yes maths A is Probability and Statistics and B is Calculus.

You can book and avail of both classes. You can view either class live and then you can access the second class at any time for the following 24 hours.

Students will be able to log in to view classes for 24 hours after the class takes place. This will allow students access to the classes even if their broadband is poor.

On line notes will be available to all students as part of the course.

We will send all the necessary information to students in advance of the start of the course. We will also have some free classes available prior to the start of the course. This will be an ideal opportunity to view exactly how the course will work. Check out our ‘Free Classes’ section.

If a teacher becomes unwell during the course we will stream that class to the students at the earliest possible opportunity.

Yes. You must first download Zoho Showtime on phone or tablet. 

We would suggest that the Fast Pace Course would suit students aiming for a H3 grade or better.

No. It’s one course spread over the 2 weeks.
