Background

  • In 2002 LU established the Mathematics Education Centre

    • teaches mathematics to most engineers

    • offers university-wide maths support

    • has significant income from externally-funded teaching and learning projects

    • is developing a programme of pedagogic research

Background

  • In association with the former LTSN’s CU and LU have collaborated extensively:

    • mathcentre

    • mathtutor

    • Good Practice in the Provision of Mathematics Support Centres

    • LTSN MathsTEAM

    • DDIG

The CETL

  • The CETL will build upon this excellence to establish first rate mathematics support facilities for students at LU, CU and beyond.

  • The CETL will make a substantial contribution to the well-documented problems associated with mathematics at the transition to University.
