The MESH team run a number of events, workshops and programs. Each semester, there will be a number of workshops tailored to units and Library roving amongst other programs. Access information about what is currently available below:


MESH Team Roving Western Sydney University Libraries

The MESH team will be roving our libraries during the Autumn 2019 Semester. 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.

Library rovers will be available at the following campuses at the indicated times from week 2 through to Stuvac (with the exception of the mid-semester break in week 9). Times may change due unforeseen circumstances.

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.

The Maths Start workshops have concluded for Autumn 2019.
