Highly coveted “A1” grade (Now a “H1”) in Maths
Previously, one of my Maths students, Timmy Lennon from Navan, Co. Meath found my Leaving Certificate Higher Level book extremely useful in preparation for his Maths exam. He went on to ace a highly coveted “A1” grade (Now a “H1”) in Maths. This put him in the top 5.2% of students in the country for his year. Timmy is now studying to be an Actuary at Dublin City University (DCU) having attained 520 points in his Leaving Certificate. See below for a picture of Timmy and I celebrating his success.
Impressive 585 points in his Leaving Certificate
Another of my talented Maths students, Jack Byrne from Trim, Co. Meath extensively used my Solutions Book in preparation for his Leaving Certificate Higher Level Maths exam. He went on to score an impressive 585 points in his Leaving Certificate. Jack was one of two students in Co. Meath to win a scholarship to Trinity College Dublin, where he is now studying General Science. Last Summer, Jack achieved a brilliant 85% (first class honours) in his end of year college Maths Exams. Another star sent on the road to success! See below for pictures of Jack and I.
I would recommend these Exam Paper Solutions for many reasons: * Clear precise steps shown in all solutions * Excellent explanations given in solutions * Solutions are very detailed compared to State Exam solutions * Ideal for revision before Christmas, Pre-Exams and Junior/Leaving Cert * Solutions provided in similar format to an Exam paper
For the last two years, I have been using Joe McCormack’s solution books while studying for the Leaving Cert. I found the solutions to be extremely helpful as they were laid out in a clear and well structured way. If I was having any difficulty with an exam question, I could open Joe’s book to help me fully understand the question. I could also see the correct method to use that the marking scheme and examiners would be looking for. I ended up with a H3 in Maths. I would definitely recommend the book for anyone doing the Leaving Cert in the future
Very easy to follow
As a student, I loved maths but as a parent I’d been hearing so much about this dreaded new “Project Maths” that when my daughter started secondary school I thought my long forgotten knowledge would be of no use to her. Then I found Joe’s solution book. It’s a simple idea (always the best) – provide the answers to the questions – but for me it was everything I needed to help my daughter i.e. step by step solutions to all the past papers. Using this book along with a blank set of papers ,we are taking it topic by topic to figure out where she’s struggling and then working through each question until she feels confident. The solutions are so detailed that I find it very easy to follow and explain. I would highly recommend this book to all students and parents.
Got me the grade I needed
I always liked Maths as a subject, but when they introduced ‘Project Maths’, I found it very challenging. I was determined to keep doing HL. A friend of mine then recommended Joe McCormack’s Project Maths Solution Book to me. Joe’s approach in his book got me the grade (H3) I needed and his support and encouragement over the past year was excellent. I am now looking forward to studying Law and French in UCC. For anyone hoping to do HL maths I can’t recommend Joe’s book enough with its straight forward approach to solutions. Thanks again Joe and the very best of luck to all those doing the LC next year. All the hard work does pay off!
I could finally relax
Throughout my final year in school I found myself flicking through many pages in my maths book looking for notes, proofs and formulas. When I got Joe’s Maths solutions book, I could finally relax knowing that if I needed to look up a solution, it was easy to find in his book. Joe’s book is clear and easy to read and I don’t think I’ve had a book similar which was so organised and included highly detailed solutions. Overall, the key notes in the book helped me a lot with my Leaving Cert Maths course.
A huge help
Joe’s exam paper solution books are worth getting for your children. My son did Ordinary level maths and his friend did higher. Both kids found the books a huge help as they are written clear and concise. From a parent’s view I found Joe’s Facebook page extremely useful. He answers your questions promptly and is very helpful. I learned more about exams, college applications etc from Joe’s page than anywhere else. If every teacher took as much interest in their students as Joe does maths would not be an issue.
I found the written explanations beside the solutions to be really useful, as they helped me understand fully how to do the question. The procedure in which the answer was done was really simple and made it a lot easier to understand and i was soon able to do the exam questions myself without any help. It also made doing a timed practice exam a lot quicker as I could flick between solutions when correcting.
I purchased the Project Maths Solution Book for my son who is currently preparing for his leaving certificate this June. He is constantly referring back to it and it has become a very important tool for him in all aspects of maths. I recently met with his maths teacher who said the book has played an important role in his progression. I’m delighted and such good value also. I think all students would benefit from this book.
Worth its weight in gold
Joe McCormack’s ‘Project Maths: Exam Paper Solutions'(Ord. Level) has been a real find!! Joe has included sample maths questions from right across the Maths Curriculum and his answers are written in a clear and logical way. At a very stressful and pressurised time in my life (Leaving Cert.!!), Joe’s book has been a real support for me. As the Project Maths curriculum is so new, there are very few resources upon which the present day Leaving Cert students can draw. Therefore, this book is worth its weight in gold!! Thank you Joe!
Very useful for studying
My son thought it was a good book and found it very useful for studying. He will continue to make use of it until his exams.
Number one tool for Maths
As the mother of two boys sitting the Leaving and Junior Cert in June, I so wish I had discovered Joe’s Project Maths Solution Books prior to this (May). Both solution books arrived last week and they are already the number one tool for Maths revision with both boys. They have commented on them that “they give a clear visual representation of what needs to be done for each question and have helped immensely with revision”. Thanks also Joe for all the helpful information you post on your Facebook page
Book was a great help
My son was averaging 37% in honours maths, I read about Joe’s book on FB & decided to try it. I am pleased to say he got a C today in his junior cert. He was thrilled & said the book was a great help to him. It helped understand by explaining it in a simpler way, thanks Joe.
It really helped me in the run up to the exams
When you’re stuck on a maths question over the weekend, rather than having to wait for the teacher to explain it, you can see how it’s done in Joe’s book. The book was really helpful. It helped me not to panic – sometimes I’d see a question and think “oh my God” but then when you read the explanation and the solution it makes you realise it’s actually easier than you think. I love how neat it was too! It really helped me in the run up to the exams in particular when I had all the information, but just wasn’t sure how it apply it to the questions. I was delighted to get an A in Maths.
