This paper considers the factors that impact on student success in first year science mathematics
courses at the National University of Ireland Maynooth (NUI Maynooth). These factors include
previous performance in the subject, attendance at lectures and tutorials, the number of assignments
submitted, and attendance at the Mathematics Support Centre (MSC). The results of this initial study
will be used to identify behaviour patterns that lead to successful completion of first year courses.
The findings will help mathematics departments to target support initiatives in areas which are most
likely to improve student learning.
