Griffith College now offer a new comprehensive online resource for Leaving Certificate mathematics (ordinary level) students.
This resource supplements the successful revision classes delivered by Griffith College in Dublin, Cork and Limerick in April. Over 700 students attended these revision sessions.
The days were split into 90 minute sessions. Each session covered a specific topic in its entirety, including all examination questions on that topic since 2000. The sessions were recorded on video and are now available to all students at www.maths.gcd.ie The site contains a complete set of revision notes, summaries and videos for each question topic on the Leaving Certificate Ordinary Level Mathematics. While the site has only been live for a few days, many students throughout the country have individually spent over 10 hours using and re-using the resource.
In providing the online resource in bite-sized chunks, much like a dictionary, Griffith College hopes it will help students to fill in any particular gap they may have in their understanding, while recognising the extensive knowledge and skills they have already mastered. By providing the resource free, it balances the opportunity for all students, regardless of their financial means.
