Free online tools for maths exams

With only four weeks to go to the exams some (free) help is at hand for Leaving Cert maths candidates.

The www.gcd.ie website provides support for students who have gaps in their understanding of the Project Maths Ordinary Level course.

The online resource is based on material from Griffith College's free classes, delivered in March and April.

Co-ordinator Tomás Mac Eochagáin said students doing Junior Certificate maths at higher level would also benefit directly from many of the topics.

Meanwhile, ALISON.com, in a joint venture with the Galway Education Centre and the Athenry Maths Academy, has launched an interactive maths resource for Leaving Cert maths candidates at higher and ordinary level.

It covers "Strand One" of the syllabus, the areas of probability and statistics.
