Preparing for the exam- a suggested methodology

The focus of this website is to provide a methodology that can be taught by teachers to students as an effective preparation for the exam. The Leaving certificate course is made up several sections: Mechanics, Optics, Sound & waves, Heat, and Electricity. In this site the proposed methodology is demonstrated in the sound & waves section, and the same approach can be applied to all of the above areas. Traditional learning approaches are encouraged within the site, and any shortcomings can be addressed by linking to appropriate sites on the internet..
