Activity Guide: An outdoor-inspired indoor mathematics experience

The Outdoor division at UCLan provides a team building residential Frontier Education course to many of the university's first year cohorts. It was noticed that within this course some of
the skills developed would not only foster better group cohesion, but also reflected some of the qualities desired from the mathematics undergraduates The chance to turn this idea into a project came with the Student Internship programme offered by sigma. This booklet is aimed at lecturers without prior knowledge of coaching theory but have the desire to approach the students development from a different direction. Developed by Andrew Burrell, Jo McCready, Zainab Munshi, Davide Penazzi.

Tutoring in a Mathematics Support Centre - A Guide for Postgraduate Tutors (sigma)

This sigma Guide is written for postgraduate students who are working in, or who want to work in, mathematics support centres. It distils the wisdom of seven people, who have many years of experience in mathematics education and in the work of support centres, into a practical resource for postgraduate students. In addition, it contains activities which can be used during training sessions to simulate working in a mathematics support centre. The guide is edited by Tony Croft and Michael Grove and authored by A.C.Croft, J.W.Gillard, M.J.Grove, J.Kyle, A.Owen, P.C.Samuels and R.H.Wilson.
