Project Maths Website Rolls Out Next Level at BT Young Scientist 2013


Online Support Launched for Leaving Cert Higher Maths Students

Project Maths Website Rolls Out Next Level at BT Young Scientist 2013

Online maths support specialists, TheMathsTutor.ie, are taking their system to the next level, with support for Leaving Certificate Higher Maths being launched at the BT Young Scientist and Technology Exhibition, on 10th January 2013 in Dublin.

The website focusing on Project Maths was launched in trial mode in time for the 2012 exams.  Initially covering topics up to Leaving Cert Ordinary level, it has received excellent feedback from students, parents and teachers, and has already supported well over a thousand Irish students in mastering Project Maths.

Given the high uptake and success of this trial, TheMathsTutor.ie recruited 3 new team members over the last six months to work on ramping up the system. As a result of this investment, the website has been significantly expanded, with new features and content to cover the latest Project Maths syllabus changes. 

Now, in 2013, the system is being expanded further, and TheMathsTutor.ie has started to provide support for Leaving Cert Higher students.

The brainchild of Eamonn Toland, TheMathsTutor.ie is unique as it is the only e-learning website designed specifically for the new Project Maths syllabus.  It offers a full online learning environment, with Video Lessons, Interactive Exercises as well as additional Online Supports.

Toland said,
“TheMathsTutor.ie fulfils the demand among students for a high quality, affordable online support for Project Maths.  For less than the cost of two grinds, students can benefit from unlimited online support for the full duration of the school year.  So now, for the first time, every parent can afford high quality maths support for their second-level students.

We had an extremely positive response to the trial version of the system up to the 2012 exams, and we are seeing a huge uptake since September 2012, with more and more students signing up for our free trial every week.”

Toland concluded by saying,
“We help students at all levels to improve their maths, whether it’s someone who is struggling with Junior Cert Ordinary level, to the person who is going for their A1 at Leaving Cert Higher level.  We’re delighted to launch our coverage of the Leaving Cert Higher level syllabus at the BT Young Scientist and Technology Exhibition, especially given the key role that maths plays in science, technology and engineering. We look forward to supporting even more Irish maths students this year.”
