Support

Supporting your Studies

There are many sources to support you through your studies. In the first instance, you might try:

  • Moodle, the College-wide online learning environment
  • The Library (If you ever need a textbook from the library and there aren't enough copies request more!)
  • Lecturer's office hours
  • Workshops (first and second year)

For a broader discussion, your personal adviser should be you first call, with the Director of Teaching being another option. You could also bring up any issues you have with your representative on the Student-Staff committee.

Additional materials that might help to suport your studies include:

  • Computer Centre IT training
  • Training for College Calculators- MapleTA has an introduction to the college calculators. Log on using your CC ID, click on "Find classes open for registration", and register for "General Mathematics". You can then take the assignment "Introduction to College Calculators".
  • Please visit the Mathematical Software page for information about how to obtain, and how to use, the software packages Mathematica, MapleTA, LaTeX and Minitab.
  • Past exam papers can be accessed via the Library Website. Note that if you are off campus, you need to be signed in to the college VPN for the maths papers to show up. No solutions to past exam papers will be provided.

Further Support

As ever, if you're not sure who to talk to, start with your personal adviser; they will try to direct you to the right place. Another option is to talk to the Senior Faculty Administrator. This is also useful for keeping the department informed of circumstances that might be influencing your studies, although if you miss any lectures, you still need to fill in the correct paperwork and submit it to the Maths office.

You might find further useful information in the undergraduate handbook.

Careers Support

When you're thinking about your future career (and the sooner you do this, the better), an important aspect is preparing your CV. Once you've prepared a version, you might discuss it with your personal adviser. After all, if you're using them as a reference, you should be sending them a copy any way. You might also be interested in:

  • Careers service. Look at the "appointments" section for details of how they can help with CV writing and interview experience. There's also Maths specific information.
  • CV writing exercise which takes place in the second year.
  • Dr Koloydenko is the careers contact, and organises some seminars.
  • Maths Careers website

You could also think about how your degree is helping to prepare you for the workplace. Are you used to planning your time, working to deadlines? Have you gained any experience working in groups? Have you done any public speaking/presentations? Have you gained any IT skills?
