Consultation with Mathematics and Statistics Staff

All courses in Mathematics and Statistics provide some form of consultation for students taking the course.

All full-time and permanent part-time academic staff are available at a number of times during the week for consultation with students in their classes about problems the student may be having with the course material. The times are advised on the information panel next to each staff person's door.

For the large first year courses, please refer to the Academic Staff Consultation Roster for the current term to receive one to one staff consulations on most mornings and afternoons of the week, during term. These staff will help students with any problems they may have with the coursework, includes consultation for statistics course MATH1041.

The School provides additional "pre-exam staff consultation support" commencing from week 11 and up to each first year final exam scheduled.  Please refer the link provided here for information. Each first year course Moodle site will provide an announcement for pre-exam support available towards the end of term. 

In addition, for the core first year courses, there is a Mathematics Drop-in Centre run by later-year students to help first year students, from week 3.

For help with Maple, there are Maple Lab Consultants in the Red-Centre lab RC-G012B between 11am and 4pm each weekday for weeks 1 to 9.

For later year courses with multiple tutorials, the consultation is provided by the tutors of the course. Rosters are not usually provided and you will need to check individual tutors' rooms. The tutors' names for the course should be available from the Course Homepage.

For small courses with only one or no tutorial, you should consult with the lecturer.

Consultation is not meant to be a substitute for attending lectures and tutorials, and the consulting staff may refuse you help if it is clear you have not been attending these.

If you need advice about which courses to take, or on enrolment problems, then see the page on Academic Advice.
