Designed to help you understand Uni maths and stats

The Numeracy Centre runs free one hour workshops which are designed to refresh and revise material. They cover most first year mathematics units and a selection of statistics units.

About our workshops

Our workshops are run by experienced staff who have an expertise in the topic area for that particular workshop. Regular workshops are run during semester for certain mathematics and statistics units. We also run workshops on demand when there is a need and we welcome students to approach us if they and their fellow students need this extra service

Regular weekly workshops

Workshops covering topics suitable for most first-year mathematics units and a selection of statistics units are run weekly during the semester, starting from week 2 or 3. These weekly workshops are run like a "mini-lecture" where the teacher revises and explains a topic and works through examples. The topic for the workshop changes each week. Workshops are free and designed to give students an extra boost to their studies. We recommend attending weekly workshops if you are struggling with some of the material you are covering in your unit.

Other workshops

One-off workshops are run on demand when there is a need. In the past, we have run refresher workshops on Mathematics in Chemistry and Statistics in Biology. We also run workshops for other students such as those preparing for the Lantite test. When these are running, they will be listed in the table above.
