The target audience for this site is primarily first year students in second
level schools in Ireland. Some sections will be suitable for younger students.

remedial work. It is not unusual for Leaving Certificate students to have
difficulty learning more complex concepts because of their lack of basic number
handling skills. For example, they can't get to grips with complex numbers
because they are still struggling with the multiplication and division of
integers.
