Oasis
Oasis is the home of mathematics and statistics student support, both online and in person. Oasis currently includes mathSpace, mathAssist, learning resources, and reading packs.
Textbooks, practice problems, and additional online support materials will be available here as they become available in the future.

mathSpace  a place to study with friends
The mathSpace is a social learning space for students to collaborate on their mathematical ideas. Facilities are provided for students to study and work on mathematics together. The mathSpace is located on the ground floor of Peter Hall building and is open during normal building access hours.

mathAssist  dropin help for learning mathematics
mathAssist is a dropin space for Mathematics and Statistics students to develop their mathematical understanding with support from Learning Assistants (formerly known as tutoronduty). There is a particular emphasis on remedying gaps in students background or assumed knowledge.
While students are encouraged to seek help with concepts they are having trouble with, mathAssist is not a place to request answers or solutions. Rather, our aim is to aid students in developing critical thinking skills to become better mathematical learners and practitioners and to make sure that students have the assumed knowledge they require for the subjects they are taking.
Your Learning Assistants can help with:
 Problem solving skills
 Critical thinking skills
 Studying techniques
 Fostering collaboration opportunities
 Background knowledge
 Obtaining additional study resources
When and Where: mathAssist is open from 12:00pm2:00pm, Monday to Friday starting Week 2 of each semester till the end of SwotVac. It is located on the ground floor of the Peter Hall Building next to the mathSpace.

SMASH  maths and stats help for nonmaths subjects
Student Maths And Stats Help – SMASH – is a peersupport programme to help students with mathematics, statistics and quantitative skills that they need for their studies. It’s open to students from any discipline. Students can come to the library dropin centres and get help from a peer assistant with the maths and statistics needed in their own disciplines.
SMASH is mainly aimed at nonmathematics students. Mathematics and Statistics students are recommended to use mathAssist instead.
When and Where: help is available in the University libraries as part of the study and learning dropins programme. See here for the times and locations.
 Reading packs  reading material for prerequisite knowledge
