Maths

Functions and Graphs is a vital topic on Paper 1. We will need to know what a function is. You need to learn all the terminology associated with this topic. We will draw out linear, quadratic and exponential graphs. It would be great if you had graph paper but not essential. We will also look at how graphs are used in real life and how these are applied to Junior Cert questions.
The biggest topic on Paper 2 is Geometry. Students leave this till last and do not put enough effort into it. We will break it down into small sections and cover as many questions as possible. I will give you notes on Trigonometry and time permitting we will go through this topic as well.

On paper 2 we will do the line and how to solve triangles in Trigonometry and vital stuff.

Sample answers will be provided for both texts.

Maths A

This class will focus on Function and Graph, Differentiation and Integration which are on paper 1 and have being worth at least 100 marks so far. It will be very hard to get a high grade on paper 1 without Differentiation. It ties in with area and volume and Algebra to form some very difficult questions (especially max – min problems). We will go through the basics in a very detailed way and then spend time doing the applications of both Differentiation and Integration.

Maths B

The single biggest area on paper 2 is Probability and Statistics. This is a huge section with a lot of different ideas that have come together on paper 2 usually for 2 short questions and 1 long question. You cannot get a high grade on paper 2 without Prob and Stats.

These are different to any other part of the course and seem much harder for some students. Like any other section you need to understand, learn, then do questions. That is what we will do during the 5 days at Easter.

Maths (Ordinary)

Probability and Statistics is huge for Ordinary level students. It is a must study area and we are going to spend a lot of time at this at the Easter course. We will break it down into small manageable chunks and do as many questions as we can.

Function, Graphs and Differentiation is a very big topic on paper 1 and this is what we will also cover at Easter. I will show you the terminology you will need, how to draw and use graphs and how Differentiation has being used in Leaving Cert questions so far.
