sigma North East and Yorkshire Hub Event – 19 June 2014

sigma North East and Yorkshire Hub is holding an event on Thursday 19th June at the University of Leeds from 10:30 to 15:00.

The day will run as an exchange of ideas and discussion on topics of current interest with the aim of strengthening links between the maths support centres and practitioners in the region.

The morning session will begin with a discussion led by Vijay Teeluck on the proposed reforms to the A Levels and how this affects us in Maths Support Centres. In addition, Ellen Marshall provides a review and update to the sigma Statistics Advisory meeting: Improving the support we give to students and each other which was held on the 9th April at Birmingham City University.

In the afternoon Rachel Homer will give a talk on how she provides Statistics and Mathematics support specifically to students in the Geography department, University of Leeds. We end the day with updates from each centre and exchanges of good practice. The programme may be accessed here and further details here.

There is no charge for attending this event and refreshments and lunch will be provided.
