Maths support – Who needs it and why (and what that means for our centres) – 27 June 2014

The sigma Midlands Hub is holding an event, Maths support – Who needs it and why at The University of Wolverhampton, Walsall campus on Friday 27 June, starting at 10:30am.

If you have liaised with academics based in the subjects whose students use maths support, we would like you to share your experiences and any impact this has had on your support centre.

Representatives from FE will be presenting to give a fuller picture of the skills undergraduate students may typically possess in mathematics and statistics. A case study of collaborative work done at Wolverhampton University will be presented as an example of good practice.

There will be ample opportunities for discussion of any good practice highlighted and issues that are common across support centres.

If you would like to give a 10 minute presentation on this topic, please contact me.

If you would like to attend this event, there is no charge and refreshments and lunch will be provided. Please let Ruth Fairclough ( know if you are planning to come so that catering &c. arrangements can be made.
