Events, Workshops and Programs

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


MESH Maths and Stats Help ONLINE using video conferencing (Zoom)

Maths and stats support has concluded for the Summer 2020/21 session. Support times for Autumn 2021 will be posted soon.

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 or stats 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", an online maths and stats help forum. Post your maths or stats related problem (along with some details of where you've gotten with it) as a new Post in the forum and a member of the MESH team or one of your fellow students can help with the next steps. If you feel shy about asking questions, you can post anonymously to other students. To sign up or sign in to I Don't Get It go to this page.

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 2021. 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 2021 should attend Maths Start. Maths Start is your first step to success .

Choose from several five day online 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.

MESH Maths and Stats Clubs

Maths and Stats Clubs are an opportunity for students who would like to work collaboratively to join together to solve problems related to their unit of study. The clubs run every teaching week as a part of the regular Maths and Stats Help sessions with the club members working in a breakout room with help available from MESH tutors. Come along and discuss the tutorial problems you didn't quite understand in class or work through other examples to help to reinforce your understanding of unit content. No registration is necessary, just let the MESH tutor know that you are there for the Maths or Stats Club when you join the room.

The schedule for Autumn 2021 will be posted early in the semester.
