TOPICS

3rd Year

Maths

Day 1

Christmas course is based on Paper 2 where we will focus on Probability, Statistics and Area and Volume.
Day 1 is on Statistics. We will look at some of the words you will need to know. Then we will do questions on mean, mode and median.

Day 2

We will finish of Statistics with presenting data in bar charts, histograms, line plots, stem and leaf and pie charts. You need a maths set.

Day 3

We will do Probability with a special effort on tree diagrams, sample space and experimental probability.

Day 4

Area and volume is a nice chapter but with a lot of material. We will look at 2 dimensional shapes and how to get the area and perimeter. With cylinders, cones and spheres we will set how these shapes are used in Junior cert questions.

Extra

You will be shown where the most common mistakes are and what you need to learn.
Maths is all about doing so a lot of your time in each class you will be doing the questions out yourself before you are shown the solutions. Any questions are welcome during the classes.
