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

The MESH team will be providing maths and stats help during the Summer 2023 session (January 9 - February 16). Just bring the (non-assessment) questions you are struggling with or lecture/tutorial notes to the relevant Zoom room (see below) and a MESH tutor will be there to assist you. This is a drop-in service meaning that you don’t need to book an appointment, just make yourself known to the tutor in Zoom.

MESH tutors will be available on the indicated days. Times may change due unforeseen circumstances.

MESH Maths and Stats Clubs

Maths clubs are an opportunity for students in maths units to work collaboratively in a Zoom breakout room with support from as MESH tutor. Come along and work on unfinished tutorial problems or other revision material with members of your cohort. Times for Maths Clubs for Autumn session will be posted early in the Autumn session.

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 2023. 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 2023 should attend Maths Start. Maths Start is your first step to success.

Choose from several five day online workshops. Optional face to face sessions will be held on the first day of each workshop at the Parramatta South campus.

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.

Community of Practice LANTITE Practice Tests

LANTITE Practice Tests

If you have registered to sit one or both of the LANTITE tests in February 2023, we are pleased to offer two online practice tests. These practice tests are pilots and aim to provide an additional opportunity for you to experience 65-question tests which simulate the ACER LANTITE tests. Register your interest by clicking on the link below. At the bottom of the form you must select which test(s) you are registered for. You will be contacted with details regarding accessing the test(s) within a few days.

If you have not registered for either of the February LANTITE tests DO NOT REGISTER for these practice tests. You will receive an opportunity to do the same practice tests in the test windows that you register for.

Please register before 3:00 pm on Tuesday February 14 for the LANTITE Practice Tests using this form.
