What will be covered in this Maths Weekly Grind?
Our teachers will cover the key points in every topic on the Higher Level Leaving Cert Maths curriculum. These Leaving Cert maths grinds cover the entirety of both Maths Paper 1 and Maths Paper 2. Our grinds are designed to focus on the material that is most likely to appear on the Leaving Cert. Our teachers show students the type of question that they should be able to answer and how to maximise their score in answering these questions.
Students will work from specially designed, Leaving Cert Maths exam–focussed notes and sample questions, with fully worked solutions. Throughout the year, they will highlight questions they think are likely to make an appearance in June. This ensures that students are as prepared for each of their two Leaving Cert Maths papers as they can be.
