Mathematics and Statistics support is designed to improve students’ relationship with maths and stats by using a diverse range of online resources, as well as offering drop-in sessions for one-to-one support.
The Pi Shop is available throughout the year to all students at the university. The Pi Shop is run by PhD students and current final year students who are there to help guide you through your mathematical problems (not to answer the questions for you) and suggest ways in which you can gain understanding and confidence in tackling questions.
Pi Shop drop-ins run every weekday, Monday to Friday, 12-2pm on the ground floor of the Cockcroft Building in G5.
This service will be particularly useful if you are a student and wish to enhance your mathematical skills. We can help you overcome your struggles with Maths, and show you how to access support throughout your degree.
You can also develop your skills using the following online resources:
These resources include tutorial videos, formula sheets, and exam type questions.
A word from a student:
Lecturers teaching other modules which were not maths expected us to know mathematical operations such as integration, differentiation etc. Even though we had a maths module, sometimes we would not have covered those topics yet. I personally realised Maths was no longer just a subject but a tool used within other subjects. Therefore I found myself needing some help in some mathematical concepts to be able to successfully pass other modules.
