MESH Maths and Stats Help in Western Sydney University Libraries

The MESH team will be providing maths and stats help in and around our libraries during the Summer 2019/20 session. Just bring the (non-assessment) questions you are struggling with or lecture/tutorial notes that you didn’t understand. This is a drop-in service meaning that you don’t need to book an appointment, just make yourself known to the tutor at the library.

MESH team members will be available at the following campuses at the indicated times from the indicated dates through to Stuvac. Times may change due unforeseen circumstances and will be reviewed in January.

Improve Your Maths Site - vUWS

Student in Library

Access the Improve Your Maths Site at any time via vUWS. Many students have areas of maths and statistics in need of development. This site can assist you to identify these areas and then develop your understanding. It is particularly helpful for gaining the assumed knowledge of first year maths and statistics subjects (algebra, number plane, functions, pythagoras, trigonometry, calculus, statistics, probability, numeracy, calculators, and more).

Access the Improve Your Maths vUWS Site (student log-in required).

I Don't Get It

Do you ever get halfway through a maths related problem in the middle of the night and have a mental block about the next step? Wish you could ask someone about it before you forget where you up to?

Introducing "I Don't Get It", a maths help forum located in the Improve Your Maths vUWS site. Post your maths related problem (along with some details of where you've gotten with it) to a new thread in the forum and a MESH team member will get back to you within one working day with some help.

MESH Maths Start Refresher Workshops

Are you studying or planning to study Engineering, Science, Computing, IT, Business or Health Science? Do you require statistics or mathematics as part of your degree?

Maths Start prepares students for mathematics and statistics at university with free workshops running in February 2020. The workshops will help you to revise essential Algebra, Trigonometry, Statistics and Calculus before starting your studies in Autumn session.

New students and also current students with a weak mathematical background who will be studying mathematical or statistical units in Autumn 2020 should attend Maths Start. Maths Start is your first step to success .

Choose from several two and three day workshops. If you are unsure which workshops are appropriate for you, the Find a Maths Start Workshop page will help you to decide based on a few simple questions.
