                        QUESTION 2 ON THE EXAMINATION PAPER IN

                                          JUNE, 2009
The topic for the Research Element is:
                                    Holiday and Travel Mathematics

Candidates will be expectedc'to be able to answer questions on the mmhematics involved in planning a
holiday. Candidates should be able to interpret and work with information from sources such as holiday
brochures, advertisements, timetables, travel websites. Candidates should understand commonly used terms
in holiday and travel mathematics: single supplement, deposit, insurance, per person sharing, high/low
season, maximum occupancy, etc.
                                                                                              ~
In particular, candidates may be asked to do some or all of the following in the examination:
   • Interpret information as it might be presented in holiday brochures
   • Calculate costs such as car hire, insurance supplements, etc.
   • Calculate the cost of accommodation in hotels, rented accommodation, campsites, etc.
   • Interpret information from timetables or schedules (rail, road, sea, and air)
   • Estimate travel times by car, and plan departure, arrival and connection times
   • Convert between the euro and other currencies, including:
        ouse    of buy and sell rates (where the agent's profit is built into the rate) and/or
        o applying commission in various forms, such as a percentage subject to a minimum charge, etc.
   • Estimate cost of meals and other goods and services in euro and in other currencies, so as to judge
       value for money, and to enable budgeting for a trip
   •. Prepare a budget for a holiday to include travel costs, accommodation, and spending money
   • Calculate the time in other time zones relative to the time in Ireland
   • Interpret climate charts, graph and tables, and have sufficient knowledge of Irish climate so as to be
       able to make comparative statements such as "this is like a hot summer day in Ireland", or to make
       suggestions regarding suitable clothing or activities for the place concerned at a given time of year
  • Convert temperatures between Fahrenheit and Celsius using conversion tables or given formulae.

It is suggested that students work with authentic        documents, real climatic information, and up-to-date
accommodation costs, exchange rates, etc. Suitable       activities include investigating the relative merits of a
package holiday as against a self-organised holiday,      using the internet to compare costs between different
airlines flying to the same destination, comparing the   merits of taking a ferry with fly-drive options, etc.

    does it arrive in London?

For various reasons (daylight saving time, not splitting parts of a country into
two zones, etc) you should now examine the map a little more carefully. Give
