**Google Search for Students**

Those who can access, process and use relevant information in a timely and efficient manner can gain advantage relative to those who can not. Time spent searching for information as opposed to time spent learning or using that information is wasted time. Time spent travelling to and from the library as opposed to time put to good use in the library is wasted time. Reducing the time spent in searching or travelling means more time is available for the value added activity of learning, or producing your projects or even just relaxing.

The aim of this booklet is to help you make your study routines more productive by pointing out ways in which free Google search applications can be used to find relevant information more efficiently. It shows how typing or speaking your search commands can get Google search to be a dictionary, spell check, calculator, stop-watch and more.

Many students find that they need to develop and improve their time management skill when they go to college. Compared to secondary school you can expect to have less in-class time, more out-of-class work to do, and greater freedom and flexibility which is up to you to manage.

The aim of this booklet is to help you make your routines more productive by pointing out ways in which you can utilise the time available to you more effectively and efficiently.

It starts with a general overview to provide background knowledge and context. It then describes some time management tools. It develops these in the context of your own action plan. Finally it provides a list of tips for you to consider when developing your action plan.

**How to Study Maths**

Everyone is different and we have several different styles of learning. Half the battle is in finding what works for you. There is no reason to dramatically change your study habits if you are already successful with them and getting the grades you want. However, most of use can find ways to improve. Successful study is dependent on effective study skills. Yet many students are never taught how to study. Study habits should be both effective and efficient. That is they should enable us to learn what we need or want to learn, and they should enable us to do so without spending excessive time or effort in the process. I hope you find this helpful in this regard.

**Mental Maths and Rapid Calculations**

When doing mathematical calculations most of us tend to confine ourselves to using methods we learnt as children in school. But those methods are not the only ones available to us. A little time and effort put into learning faster or easier to apply methods can be well worth while.

Marking Schemes – an overview is all you need

English-Irish math translations this is a work in progress and I am hoping that people will email corrections to me so that the document can be updated and improved. But with over 1300 maths related words and phrases I think that it may already be of use to students who find themselves doing maths classes through Irish and having textbooks in English.
