Our Online Magazines include ‘Summer Camps’ featuring memories from Summers past nd other content about our summer camps and ‘Connemara maths Academy’ packed with highly visual and fascinating contemporary facts and figures and daily updates of our programmes and relevant articles.
Learning through discovery, creativity and adventure is the corner stone of our educational philosophy, promoting critical thinking, problem solving and educated risk taking through a challenging and demanding intensive programme with a strong emphasis on technology, physical activity, creative art and music participation interwoven through this mathematics centered curriculum. We prepare participants to be confident and fluent in the key concepts that underpin their forthcoming syllabuses while enjoying themselves in a highly stimulating and thoroughly enjoyable learning environment at Rockwell College and Delphi Resort.
At CMA our aim is to overcome these issues, enabling students to free their minds of the rote learning shackles and to become inspired, creative, problem solving students where mathematics becomes a happy and joyful experience, fluency in key concepts becomes a reality and career choices expand enormously. We encourage students to learn through discovery, creativity & visualisation while making as many world and real life connections with the key mathematical concepts as possible, paving the way for students to acquire a more fluent and confident approach to mathematics and other related subjects.
‘Máthēma’: ‘that which one learns’; this ancient Greek word means ‘that which one learns’ and in modern Greek simply means ‘lesson’. There have been many other definitions since then such as Aristotle’s definition ‘the science of quantity’ up to as late as 1870 with Benjamin Peirce’s ‘the science that draws necessary conclusions’. Whichever definition one prefers, mathematics can be seen as a fundamental philosophy whereby people can understand the world around them enabling them to aspire to be masters of their own destiny, whether it be through a university degree they would ideally like to complete or a career they would love to follow or a business idea they have and need to be equipped to pursue.
