Our services

The Drop-In Centre offers free individual help with the Mathematics and Statistics component of any first-year subject. In particular, we help with:

  • all first-year Mathematics units
  • a selection of first-year Statistics units
  • Physics

When the centre is open students may drop in for free maths-related help or in preparation for a future course. No appointment is necessary.

Our Centre is staffed by both permanent academic staff and casual tutors. You can view expertise of each tutor is advertised on our timetable.

No assignment questions will be answered, but students have access to:

  • a small library of mathematical books
  • material for self-study
  • professional help in the areas of greatest need.

Be sure to sign in at the front desk so that we can keep records on when and how the Numeracy Centre is used, which would help us in our funding.
