MASH celebrates success

The Mathematics Resources Centre welcomes its 5000th visitor

The Mathematics Resources Centre provides mathematics and statistics support to students from all disciplines. One of our important activities is Mathematics and Statistics Help (MASH) drop-ins: daily drop-in sessions for all students, which run for at least two hours every day during teaching, revision and examinations. Additional peer tutor drop-ins are provided specifically for year one mathematics units, run by second year students. Other activities include appointments for statistical queries through our Statistics Advisory Service (SAS), available to final year undergraduates, postgraduates and staff.

Three recent milestones

Each winner was awarded a £25 Amazon voucher.

Professor Peter Lambert, Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Learning and Teaching), said: The statistics are outstanding and reflect how successful MASH has been in providing invaluable support not just to maths students, but to students across the whole university. We are very proud of their achievements.

Dr Cheryl Voake-Jones, MASH Coordinator and Teaching Fellow, added: It's great to see so many students making good use of MASH. We welcome students from all degree programmes at our drop-in sessions, covering everything from basic numeracy to calculus to complex statistical modelling, and the wide range of students that we see means that no two drop-ins are ever the same.

In addition to these activities, we have significantly expanded other provision over recent years.
