This guide provides you with information to support numeracy and maths during your University studies. While we are unable to cover everything that might be specific to your course, it does include the following areas:
Initially, the required Maths skills will be introduced and explained by your course teams. They'll introduce the concepts and, most importantly, ground these within the discipline requirements.
If you find that, after the topics have been introduced and examples worked through by your course team, you are encountering difficulties then you are advised to contact an academic skills adviser. We can direct you to additional support material that can help. This might include online support material in the form of videos or courses.
You will also find self-help resources on this web site. We strongly encourage you to be proactive and access these resources. The online guides within the Faculty pages have been created after consultation with the appropriate course teams and are based around assessment style questions.
There is also a forum dedicated to answering specific questions about math at math.stackexhange.com. Please read the user guides before posting and never ask for a the answer to a problem you have been set on your course as not only will this not help your understanding but it will also be picked up by your tutors!
