How we can help

The Mathematics Learning Centre provides support and guidance for eligible current and prospective students to develop their understanding, capacity and confidence in mathematics and statistics.

If you are worried about the mathematical or statistical content needed in your units of study, then we encourage you to explore our services or to come and talk with us.

We offer a range of help – drop-in sessions, online materials, bridging courses for for certain units, revision and introductory workshops.

Drop-in Centre

Our Drop-in Centre can provide individual one-to-one help with a selection of mathematics, statistics and related units of study. Examples of units that we support include most of the MATH11XX and MATH10XX units, ECMT10XX, ENVX1002, BUSS1020, PHAR1812, PHAR2813, PSYC2012 and PUBH5018.

This service is free, and is available to eligible students.

You’re eligible if you’re studying a unit of study that we support and:

  • have not studied the mathematics which is assumed knowledge for your university course
  • are a mature age student who has not studied mathematics for several years
  • are from overseas and find you have gaps in your knowledge, or are not familiar with the mathematical terms in English or
  • your studies have been interrupted by either illness or accident or some other cause.

If you think you are eligible for any other reason, please contact us (in person if possible).

Our drop-in centre is located in the Main Quad, Room N293.

Generally, during the teaching weeks of semesters our opening hours are between 10am to 5pm on weekdays, with some slight alterations on certain days.

We are also open during mid-semester breaks, STUVAC and exam periods to a modified timetable as well as for selected courses such as the Mathematics Bridging Course and the Introduction to Calculus MOOC (as demand requires). We’re closed on public holidays.

Further details and up-to-date opening times can be found at Timetables.

Mathematics Revision Classes

We organise a series of revision classes for specific units of study in mathematics and statistics. These revision classes cover unit of study material and are held regularly through the semester.

Details of these classes are posted on our website at Workshops.

Workshops

We partner with Schools in the University to offer introductory workshops to students who do not have the assumed knowledge in mathematics for their studies.

Again details are posted at Workshops.

Online resources

We have online resources to support your study.

For general resources go to Publications and Resources.

We also have specific materials for the following units:
MATH1111
MATH1013
MATH1014
