It is important for all students to achieve their full potential in the subject. To enable this to happen students are encouraged to take an active part in the learning processes they experience and to enjoy their Mathematics lessons. A variety of learning methods is employed, which includes classwork, projects and investigational work. Further to this, to broaden students' experience, practical lessons on different topics such as databases, spreadsheets and the use of computers, probability and data handling are included.
Students are issued with an Exercise book and text book which they must bring to every lesson. They are expected to supply for themselves Pen, Pencil, Ruler, Eraser, protractor, compass and Electronic Calculator.
All possible care is taken to ensure students are placed in appropriate groups. If any doubt exists it is important that concern is expressed immediately, therefore contact either Mr. R. McGuigan or Mr. G. Gorman.
Students are expected to behave in a reasonable manner that does not interfere with the learning environment of anyone else. They are expected to be punctual, well prepared, with all homework complete, and with all necessary equipment. This will enable all students to enjoy their lessons and progress.
Homework is an essential part of the course and will set to support and reinforce students' classroom activities. The amount and timing of homework will vary depending on classroom needs.
