About us

The Numeracy Centre, co-ordinated by Carolyn Kennett, is located in C5A 225 and has two major aims:

  1. To improve students’ access to mathematics and numeracy-based courses, such as statistics, at undergraduate and postgraduate level.
  2. To improve students’ completion rates of mathematics and numeracy-based courses.

In striving to achieve these aims, the Numeracy Centre offers a number of services including a free drop-in service, weekly workshops for some first year courses, bridging programs and preparatory courses at the beginning of each semester and some on-line resources.

The Numeracy Centre is funded by the University through Access and Equity initiatives. It has two permanent members of staff, the Director of the Centre, Carolyn Kennett and a part time lecturer, Dilshara Hill. The Centre also employs a number of casual tutors who work in the centre on a roster basis and also teach some of the workshops.

  • Jim Andrianopoulos
