Over 1,000 Leaving Cert Students are registered to join Griffith College’s FREE online Maths Revision course, which takes place today, Thursday 16th April and on Sunday, 19th April, 2020.
The courses have traditionally been run at the College’s campuses in Dublin, Cork and Limerick and are now taking place online in response to Government recommendations on controlling the spread of Covid-19.
Facilitated by Griffith College’s Director of Academic Programmes, Dr Tomás Mac Eochagáin, the free online workshops will provide resources and tips for students on the Leaving Cert Higher and Ordinary level maths.
Dr Mac Eochagáin said” “Our annual Leaving Cert maths revision programmes are hugely popular with Leaving Cert students. This year, we have experienced extraordinary demand for the course.
“This could be attributable to the closure of the schools perhaps and also the convenience of being able to participate in these classes for free from the comfort of the students’ own homes.
“The Leaving Cert students are under huge stress this year with all the personal upheaval they and their families are experiencing and we hope that the availability of this course online will offer continuity and support to them at this difficult time.”
Schools Liaison Officer at Griffith College Sinéad O’Callaghan said: “We’re delighted to offer our workshop to students in an online format this year. Unfortunately, we’re not in a position to welcome students to our campuses in Dublin, Cork and Limerick for the in-house event.
“Nevertheless, we have tailored the programme to be delivered online and to support students with their Leaving Cert Math studies at this time. Tomás is a passionate Mathematics educator and our values are to support all students nationwide with their studies.
“We’re proud to offer this workshop free of charge and follow it up with an online Maths resource with further videos, class notes and examination materials to enable the students to achieve their best’.
The online resources used by Dr Mac Eochagáin during the course will be made available to registered students until after the Leaving Certificate examinations.
