From Tuesday the 2^{nd} to Friday the 5^{th} of January 2018.
Many parents, and students, ask us: Why should I choose Revise.ie’s Intensive Revision Courses? We always offer the same list of benefits:
See if you can find anywhere else that combines great teachers, professional notes, Supervised Study sessions, and years of experience all in one package. No longer do students from South Leinster, North Munster, and all the border counties have to travel to attend courses. Revise.ie Kilkenny and Cavan have brought the courses to you.
We firmly believe that student focused learning is the most successful route to exam success. Too many students fall behind with conventional learning. Find out more about our Grinds Classes.
We have been talking, and listening, to our students for 10 years. Thanks to this constant evolution we know what today’s students really wants when it comes to preparing for their exams.
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.
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.
We will do Probability with a special effort on tree diagrams, sample space and experimental probability.
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.
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.

Algebra is the key to doing well in the Leaving cert. It is the most important topic of them all.
Day one will be on basic key skills 
Multiplication including perfect squares.
Factors. Fractions.
Equations  linear, quadratic and cubic.
Moving through more algebra.
Absolute value
Inequalities
Surds
Really important idea of Indices
Logs from start to finishes going through in particular worded questions.
A major part of paper 2 is Trigonometry which we are going to break down over the 4 days. We will start with
Degrees and Radians
Double Angles
Compound Angles
We will go through how to solve equations.
How to use trigonometry to find either a missing length or missing angle in a 2 dimensional triangle.
We will continue with solving triangles but this time it will be 3 dimensional and problems that involve circles.
We will deal with identities.
Trigonometrical graphs.
Inverse trigonometry.
You will need to bring a maths tables and a calculator to all classes please.
Algebra is a really important topic on Paper 1 and can be seen as well on paper 2.
We will start with how to multiply out.
We will learn how to deal with fractions.
We will do a very important idea of putting numbers instead of letters.
We will deal with how to find the factors.
You must be able to solve linear equations and quadratic equations.
We will solve inequalities.
Simultaneous equations is a must to do.
We will try to get a small bit done on Indices.
We will start in coordinate Geometry of the line which is on Paper 2.
We will go through all the different formula you will need to use and then go through different leaving cert questions
Time permitting we will look at the Circle. This chapter sort of ties in with Algebra and the Line that we will have studied over the previous 3 days.
We will look at all the terminology you will need to use. We will then go through how to find the equation of a circle and the equation of a tangent.
Extra
During every class I will go through the theory and show you what you will need to know. More importantly you will be given a chance to do as many questions as we can get through. I will then go through the solutions of the same questions so that if you made a mistake you can see where and why. Bring a calculator and tables to all the classes.
