Postgraduate Teaching Workshops

‘I think every student who has to demonstrate should attend a workshop like this.’

network funded resources
Network Funded Resources
  • E-learning Modules (Dave Woods – Southampton)
    • Design of experiments

    • Modern regression methods

network funded resources12
Network Funded Resources
  • DragMath: A free ‘drag and drop’ equation editor
  • STACK: Computer-assisted assessment in mathematics
  • Mathletics: A suite of computer-assisted assessments

r and rpanel
R and Rpanel
  • The rpanel package provides a set of simple interactive controls for R functions which are particularly useful in creating dynamic graphics

  • R-books: Interactive course-notes/text books which both animate key concepts and also provide learner feed-back.

model choice
Model Choice
  • Model Choice is a system that presents a graded series of scenarios to students, at a level appropriate to their current learning, and challenges them to choose from a list the probability distribution that should be used to model the outcome of the stochastic experiment being described.
