Setting up a maths support centre (HE STEM)
The focus of this HE STEM guide is to provide mathematics support to students across all STEM disciplines to ease the transition from School/College in to University. This is a key factor influencing drop-out from STEM degrees and a targeted provision for mathematics support is a proven way to counter this. It includes cases studies from the Universities of Coventry, Portsmouth, York. Lincoln and Kent and articulates the experiences of the two Sigma Directors Professor Duncan Lawson, Coventry University and Professor Tony Croft, Loughborough University joint winners of the 2011 Times Higher Award for Outstanding Support for Students
HE Mathematics Curriculum Summit
The HE Mathematics Curriculum Summit on 12 January 2011 brought together representatives of half of the mathematical sciences departments in England and Wales and the professional bodies for a day of debate and discussion on the state of HE mathematics course design and delivery. This report gives summaries of the debate, talks and discussions as well as a series of recommendations of current priorities for curriculum development in mathematical sciences.
