MESH Team Roving Western Sydney University Libraries

Do you need a second chance in understanding the mathematics and/or statistics needed for your studies? Help is at hand from the Mathematics Education Support Hub (MESH) team!
The MESH team will be roving our libraries during the Autumn 2018 Semester. Library roving begins in week 2, with the MESH team available at the indicated times.
General library roving will conclude for Autumn semester in Stuvac. Please also note that there will be no library roving during the mid-semester break (week 9).

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.

Maths Start Bridging Program

The Maths Start workshops have concluded for 2018. All workshop materials are available through the Maths Start vUWS site if you would like to revise your basic skills in Algebra, Statistics, Trigonometry or Calculus. If you don't have the Maths Start Workshops site in your My vUWS Sites, please contact MESH for access.
