The School of Theoretical Physics, DIAS invites Leaving Certificate mathematics students to participate in the 2017 Calculus Course – taking place on ten weekends from 30th September 2017.

Announcement

A 10-week course on Mathematical Calculus will be given by Prof. T. C. Dorlas at the Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies on Saturdays before Christmas, beginning on 30th September. The aim of the course is to provide Leaving Certificate mathematics students with an opportunity to prepare themselves more astutely for further study in areas of Third Level education where a healthy comprehension of calculus is required. A greater understanding of calculus, than that provided through the current Leaving Certificate curriculum, is essential in preparation for university courses in Mathematics, Science, Engineering and Economics. The course has been developed in response to changes made in the Curriculum (Project Maths), specifically the reduction of calculus taught, over recent years.

The course is open to all Higher-Level Leaving Certificate students, from both 5th and 6th years. As numbers are limited, those interested in attending are requested to register by 25th September – at the latest. Regular attendance will be compulsory as well as completion of exercises. A certificate of attendance will be provided at the end of the course. A nominal fee of €40 will apply (see below for details on payment methods).

Morning classes will run from 10am to 12pm. Should an afternoon class be offered, it will run from 2pm to 4pm.

For further information, please contact George Rogers (grogers@stp.dias.ie).

To register, please download the registration form from the link provided below and send it, along with a letter of recommendation from your mathematics teacher, to the address given.

Alternatively, payments may be made by cheque, payable to “Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies”, and posted along with the completed registration form to this address:

Such sad news...
DIAS is extremely proud that Professor Stephen Hawking gave a lecture here @stpdias in October 1983 on Schrodinger's ideas about quantum mechanics & modern developments in general relativity and supergravity
