We discuss strategies to help you develop as an independent learner, how to take good lecture notes and find help when you need it.

The slides are reasonably self-explanatory so feel free to click through them.

Read mathematics effectively


Presentation slides from a (ma+hs)Smart workshop designed to make you more fluent in reading your maths notes and writing out your ideas logically and clearly. See the workshop timetable to find out if this session is running this semester.
