Getting mathematics and statistics help

Find out what in-person and live online interactive maths and statistics help is available for you.

Come to a MASH drop-in

Maths and statistics help is available to all students at the University. We run a general drop-in every weekday during term time. At the current time this support is live, online and interactive but we hope to offer in-person drop-in in the near future. You can ask any maths or statistics question without fear. Our drop-ins are run by maths and statistics tutors who can:

  • help you to find, understand and use information in your lecture notes, in textbooks or online
  • help you to get started or to make progress on your work
  • help you to understand concepts in maths, statistics and numeracy
  • suggest resources to help you with your studies

Information about how the drop-in works is on our drop-in and Workshop timetable page.

Getting the right support

If you are a first year maths student then you should usually use the support that is designed specifically for you as you learn how to approach your studies.

If you are a project student and are looking for statistics help then you should find out about getting statistics help for project work and decide if this is more appropriate for you than a drop-in.

Get help with software, programming or mathematical typesetting

We offer support for software and programming including Excel, SPSS, R and statistical programming; MATLAB, general programming and mathematical typesetting (LaTeX, Word, MathML).

Getting the right support

Please come to any drop-in in the first instance - you may be directed to a drop-in on a different day or asked to make a Statistics Advice Service appointment
