Maths Arcade at Sheffield Hallam University: Developments made in a new space

Claire Cornock

Abstract


The Maths Arcade at Sheffield Hallam University has been developed since it was established in 2012. The move to a new space has led to an increase in its popularity and inter-year interactions. It has added to the extensive number of factors that help ease the transition into university. In particular, it now features in the induction week programme and plays a part in our peer assisted learning scheme. In addition to the weekly sessions enjoyed by the students, the Maths Arcade has also been used at a number of events such as the final year de-stress day, and used by the Women in Engineering and Mathematics Society. The Maths Arcade has also hosted another Rubik’s cube championship.
