Resource Development Projects Funded

We are pleased to announce the successful projects that will be funded under the 2014/15 sigma Resource Development funding call. The focus of the resource development funding call is to enable practitioners to share their expertise with the wider community through the creation and dissemination of resources. This year, the following projects are being funded:

  • Birbeck, University of London – To develop video based resources to support Computing Science students, focussing on binary numbers and Boolean logic,
  • Brunel University London – To develop 27 SPSS video tutorials, including Initial analysis and descriptive statistics, Charts and graphs, Correlations and T-tests,
  • Central St Martins (University of the Arts London) – To develop resources for Arts and Humanities students, covering some key themes and ideas in geometry while emphasising practical skills, mathematical thinking and points of cultural and historical interest,
  • University of Kent – To develop a set of numeracy self-study guides to support pharmacy students,
  • University of the West of England To develop a suite of statistics e-Assessments with supporting materials.

Each of the projects receives a grant of £2,000, with the expectation that the resources created will be made available to the wider community via mathcentre and statstutor before the end of May 2015.

There will be a final funding call in Autumn 2015.
