Transitions in the Mathematical Sciences - 18 April 2018
Growing student numbers in mathematical sciences lead to significant challenges for teaching staff in particular when students are going through the transition from school to university education. This workshop aimed to bring together staff to discuss key issues and share ideas and good practice.
This workshop was jointly organised by the Department of Statistics and the Mathematics Institute. We gratefully acknowledge the support of Institute of Mathematics and its Applications.
