Getting mathematics and statistics help

Find out what remote maths and statistics help is available for you.

Come to a remote 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 run remotely. 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 remote 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. However, it is not possible to run this support remotely. Hence, you are very welcome to come to our general drop-in. We will be better able to support you if you tell us you are a first year maths student when you login.

If you are a project student and are looking for statistics help then you should find out about getting remote statistics help for project work and decide if this is more appropriate for you than a remote 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 remote drop-in in the first instance - you may be directed to a drop-in on a different day or asked to make a remote Statistics Advice Service appointment
