Maths 3rd Year Weekly Grinds
What will be covered in these Junior Cert Maths Grinds?
The 3rd Year Junior Cycle Maths course is designed to ensure that all students maximise their potential. The focus of each class during the year is the exam and how students can excel in that exam. Classes are as interactive as possible and only areas that are examinable are covered.
The students will be given a comprehensive set of Junior Cycle Maths notes based on each strand on the syllabus. These notes will also contain a huge number of potential exam questions and the solutions to these questions. These can be used as a stand-alone study tool that will reinforce the students learning from the weekly classes.
