This website provides a multisensory presentation covering the Junior Certificate Ordinary Level Maths examination papers from 2008 to 2005. This project is suitable both for the teacher in the classroom, and the individual pupil working on his/her own. The material is provided in PowerPoint 2003 format with many animations to help students visualise the concepts required for this question. The students will interact with this resource at a number of levels. At a physical/tactile level, the student will control the pace of the lesson and the degree of repetition required. The student engages both visual and auditory modalities while learning. Having engaged the tactile, visual and auditory senses, the student is now strongly disposed to accommodate and assimilate new information and understanding. The student engages cognitively thus learning how to approach questions/problems and break solution procedures down into logical steps. The student can then retrace the steps taken and thus see solving the problem as a logical procedure progressing from problem to solution.
