MESH Team Roving Western Sydney University Libraries

Library roving has concluded for the Autumn 2018 semester. Library roving times for Spring 2018 will be posted soon.

The MESH team will be roving our libraries during the Spring 2018 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.

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 or Health Science?
