Connemara Maths Academy are running a very exciting course this summer – it’s a bit like going to the Gaeltacht, but instead of improving your Irish, you get yourself fluent in Maths!

I was invited on to Tipp FM to discuss the exam paper error seen in Leaving Cert Higher Paper2
Thanks to Seamus, Tom and the team for having me on the show, I enjoyed chatting about ‘The Bermuda Triangle’ as they’re calling it in Tipperary!
Here’s our top tips that will save you a lot of marks and could even save your grade:
1. Be careful with minus signs – the single most common source of error.
2. Don’t try to do too much in one step – break it down into smaller steps.

Eamonn took part in the Project Maths debate on Joe Duffy’s Liveline last week.
There was a lot of negativity about Project Maths, so Eamonn went on air to challenge the critics to do something positive to help Irish students, especially those with exams coming up in June.

Judges, Mentors, Students and Teachers
I was delighted to be asked to judge the North Mayo Regional Final of the Student Enterprise Awards last week.
There were 9 finalists from 4 local schools, and first prize went to a team from St Muredach’s, Ballina, with a very interesting (and tasty!) food product for allergy sufferers!
