I am not available for help for the summer exams  (third level nor Leaving Cert). I am available to help third level students for their repeat exams.

I am now available to do maths grinds in the Cork City area.  Third level students including UCC/ CIT. All levels and abilities. In particular, I am able to help with these modules. If your module is not on this list please enquire as per below.

Contact me on  086-1089437 or jpmccarthymaths@gmail.com.

I charge €30 per hour but also €30 per hour for a group (i.e. two students pay €15 each).

I am a lecturer in CIT: a recent CV may be found here.

Excel CA

There is a 15% Excel Test in Week 12 in the usual lab times and venues:

  • IT1-A , Thursday 12:00 in C128
  • IT1-B, Wednesday at 16:00 in C125

 I recommend that you come as early as possible and get your machine started up.

In the lab itself, I will hand you out a Test A or a Test B — and email you an Excel file that you can use as a template.

Here is the Sample Test including the Excel template.

Here is a scanned copy of the solutions and here is the Excel file used to support the solutions.

Labs 1 & 2 are here and here (data). The other lab is here.

This is an open book assessment — and any information which you can access on your workstation you are free to use — but you must not look at your neighbour’s work.

Week 11

On Wednesday we worked on binomial and Poisson Distribution exercises. On Thursday we started talking about the normal distribution.

Week 12 — Excel Test

We will work on the normal distribution.

Week 13 — Revision

Maple Test

The Maple Test will be open book and any resource that you can access at your workstation you are free to use.

You have a sample Maple Test with solutions. The Maple Test will not include anything from Chapter 2.

You must come in at the time given below (if the time doesn’t suit contact me ASAP):

Maple Catch Up

A number of students have not handed in Maple work. If you want to catch up you have two options

  • download the Maple file from your email, do the exercises in Maple (either in a new worksheet or on top of the original file with the exercises), save the worksheet and email me the worksheet you were working on.
  • come in at 18:00 on Wednesday 11 May in Week 13 for a Maple session.

Week 11 – Maple Night

We looked at the Poisson distribution and the normal distribution.

Week 12 – Maple Test

We will speak about sampling and also introduce control charts.

Week 13 – Review

We will hold a review class on Wednesday 11 May in the usual room. First off, the layout of your exam is the same as Summer 2015 (in the back of your notes): do question one worth 50/100 and two out of questions two, three, four; each worth 25/100.

I will field any questions ye might have at this time and if there are no questions we will do this exam paper. The best possible thing for your study is to do this exam paper and then on Wednesday see how you got on.

Independent Learning: Exercises

You are supposed to be working outside of class and I am supposed to help you with this. Working outside of class means doing the exercises in the notes. Any work that is handed up will be corrected by me. Also you can ask me a question here on this site and I will answer it ASAP.

  • Poisson Distribution: Q. 1-9
  • Normal Distribution: Q. 5(a)-(c), 6, 7(a), 8(a)-(c), 9, 10(a)-(b)

These are good questions to look at — I am not saying that you should do ALL of them.
