The Leaving Cert Higher maths course contains 22 geometry constructions, 15 of which you will have already covered in Junior Cert Higher constructions. Some of these first 15 form the basic steps of the more advanced constructions, so it is important to master these first. When you are comfortable with constructions 1 to 15, you can move on to the remaining 7 constructions which are required for the Leaving Cert Higher maths course. Geometry constructions […]
The Junior Cycle Ordinary course contains 13 geometry constructions. Geometry constructions have been examined almost every year in the Junior Cycle Ordinary exam. If you are aiming for a high grade, you can’t afford to neglect this part of the course. For general guidance on how to learn and revise constructions, click here. Here’s the full list of JCO constructions, and the demo videos are embedded below this. Construction 1 – Bisector of an angle, using […]

All Junior Cycle and Leaving Cert students (Higher and Ordinary level) have a set number of geometric constructions that they need to be able to do. In this article, we’re going to look at geometric constructions in general, and how to learn and practise constructions. For those in a hurry, we’re adding links to demo videos, which show you exactly how to do each of the constructions that you need. We suggest you review the […]
Exam Script Viewing and Exam Appeals - Key Facts, Dates and Resources for Leaving Cert 2019 SummaryAll Leaving Cert students are entitled to view their exam scripts free of charge. There are set dates and times to apply for this, and set dates and times for viewing (see below for details). Some scripts (such as maths) are viewed online, others at the examination centre. All Leaving Cert students are entitled to appeal their exam grade, for [...]
UPDATED ADVICE FROM 8th June 2019 Summary: Leaving Cert maths students can continue to use pencil for diagrams, graphs and constructions, but it is strongly recommended by the SEC that they use black or blue ink (not gel pens) for other parts of their maths exam. Notwithstanding this recommendation, we believe that students will not be penalised if they used pencil throughout, as long as it is clearly legible using an appropriate pencil e.g. a […]

Not an easy choice, but the key thing is to make an informed decision, not a snap decision! We’re going to guide you through the process. So, let’s look at the pros and cons associated with doing higher level maths, and the […]
It is easy to get flustered in an exam, especially when things aren’t falling into place: you know that the answer should be a whole number, and you are getting a screen-load of digits. You will very well know at this point that to do well in an exam you need to keep a cool head. Is this a problem for you? Have you ever been able to just move on to a different question without fixating on the previous one and blaming yourself for not being prepared?
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!
Eamonn was invited on to the Tommy Marren Show again, on Mid West Radio, to talk about our licencing deal with the Irish Naval Service. Thanks to Tommy and the team, it’s always a pleasure to be on the show!
The Irish Independent ran an article recently about the growth in online learning support in Ireland. It was nice for themathstutor.ie to be mentioned as one of the main websites in this area.
We’ve been contacted by a few national journalists recently, so look out for more coverage of our system in the newspapers soon!
So much to tell, but the highlights included meeting the Taoiseach, chatting with Colm O’Neill (CEO of BT) and Sean O’Sullivan (of Dragon’s Den) about e-learning, but most of all, checking out the amazing projects and meeting the students who created them!
This one is on Graphs and Functions, on Wed 23rd May at 8pm. I am going to show you how to tackle some typical exam questions. Remember you also need to understand this stuff when you do applications of differentiation questions.
We are going run some free online grinds coming up to the Leaving Cert exams. The first one is on Algebra, on Wed 16th April at 8pm.
You can join the class at the following link, from 7.55pm onwards:
