Reviewing Coventry Universitys Mathematics Support Centre 2016-17: Ideas and Inspiration

Mark Hodds, Aiping Xu


The academic year 2016-17 was one of outstanding achievement for the sigma Mathematics Support team at Coventry University. We had a further increase in the take-up of sigmas range of services by students from all faculties and our feedback has been enthusiastically positive. Above all, the team has taken some innovative approaches to support and inspire Coventrys ever-growing body of students and staff. This article aims to provide insight into our services and to provide perhaps some inspiration and ideas that other support centres can use.
