Maths Time Trial 2

Saturday 29 February 2020

Want to test yourself against one of the country’s best Maths teachers? The Maths Time Trial is a unique 4-hour maths experience developed, written and delivered by Brendan Guildea, that aims to turn your competitive nature into a stimulating, interactive, learning exercise.

 For further information on grinds and part-time courses please contact our main office on 01 661 3511.

The second Maths Time Trial of the academic year is once again delivered by Brendan Guildea. It follows the same format as the previous class but covers new topics and questions. The class is suitable for those who have attended previously however, it is not essential, as each Time Trial is an independent, stand alone experience.   During the 4-hour class, Brendan will pose a series of challenges to students. After tackling the questions under a time constraint, Brendan will issue students with detailed solutions and provide exam focused comments and insights.

The first half of this seminar covers topics from Paper 1:

  • Differential Calculus.
  • Induction.
  • Binomial Expansions.
  • Pattern.
  • Algebra.

The second part of our seminar works on the following topics from Paper 2:

  • Euclidean Geometry.

Q: Can I be admitted to class without my card?

A: It is every student’s personal responsibility to ensure they have their card with them each time they attend classes at the Institute. We have the right to refuse admission to any student who does not comply with this regulation. If you have misplaced or have not received your card please come into our reception and we will issue you with a replacement or temporary card.

Q: Is there a place I can get lunch?

A: Yes, we have an onsite canteen serving a variety of sandwiches and drinks. Also, locally, there are sandwich bars and shops.

Q: Are the classes conducted ‘lecture style’ or are students free to ask questions?

A: Our teachers are very approachable and students are free to ask questions.

Q: My son/daughter is unwell and cannot attend. Can I have a refund?

A: No, there are no refunds. However, if you return the student’s admission card to us immediately, along with a short letter of explanation, at the discretion of management, a credit note can be put on the student’s file for future use or for use by a sibling.

A: Yes, however you must deal directly with your teacher in relation to this. Administration staff do not have access to class notes.
