Friday the 14th of September saw the launch of the Maths Support Centre at St. Mary’s Secondary School Edenderry. This new initiative by the Maths Department runs every Friday for the duration of the school year. The core idea of the Maths Support Centre is to provide friendly additional support to students of all abilities. This centre is a place for students to come and ask any question on any mathematics material they have covered in class or as part of their own independent work. The MSC is currently available to 3rd and 6th year exam students.
Please note: The Maths Support Centre will only provide help in cases where the student has already thought about the material they are working on. Teachers will provide structures and examples to build on the student’s prior knowledge to help the student to progress. Teachers will not give a full solution of a homework problem as this would not be beneficial to the student. The main goal is to help each student to move past the point at which they are experiencing difficultly. Regular attendance at the Maths Support Centre will help improve students' experience of mathematics at 2nd Level.
The Maths Support Centre will run every Friday during the school year in room 33 from 1:20 – 1:45pm for all 3rd and 6th year students of all abilities.
