Hi...I am doing this course and the there is maths in semester 1 and 2.. The maths is quite basic ordinary maths leaving cert level...In semester 1 the maths is a bit challenging as you cannot use a calculator...I also struggle with maths big time but I found if you just go in to class everyday and do a bit of work and keep your maths journal up to date then you will be fine..No problem..
In semester 2 i found the maths a lot easier as we are allowed to use calculators again and found the maths a lot easier...Nothing to get bothered about!!...Also the lecturers are brilliant also there are classes run Tuesdays and Thursdays to help you if you are finding it difficult.. The physics is on in semester 2 and the maths is very basic...just adding, subtraction, dividing, multipying etc...Very easy!!..
Overall I love the course...it really is brilliant...lecturers are brilliant and subjects are very managable!.. Unfortunately no filed trips yet..but plenty of group work which can be difficult at first until the group settles as a class..but the wood will seperate from the trees after a while..! My advice is just go in everyday do the bit or work you nedd to do and you will breeze through the exams!!...Good luck with it!!!
