Mathematics and Statistics are linear subjects where success at higher levels depends on firm foundations, it is likened to a carpenter who is only capable of making a beautiful piece of furniture once they understand how a hammer and nail work. It is also the case that students succeed by regularly practicing mathematics, as it is not a spectator sport!

This eSTEeM funded project has allowed us to produce a suite of resources which allows students to self-identify the areas where they need to revise for transition between level 2 and 3 modules in maths and stats. Giving them a supported learning environment, where they can self-study and ask questions on a moderated “Pre-module help” forum.
