mathcentre was developed by a group from the Universities of Loughborough, Leeds and Coventry, the Maths Stats and OR Network and the Educational Broadcasting Services Trust in 2003. Important components of the site were developed through the sister project mathtutor which was funded by the HEFCE and the Gatsby Charitable Foundation. mathcentre was upgraded in 2010 with funding from JISC. As part of this upgrade, mathcentre resources are being deposited in the JorumOpen and FETLAR repositories.
mathcentre has been set up to deliver mathematics support materials, free of charge, to students, lecturers and everyone looking for post-16 maths help. The mathcentre team are a group of people who run university mathematics support centres, who teach mathematics, and who design new media products for learning.
mathcentre gives you the opportunity to study important areas of pre-university mathematics, which you may have studied before or may be new to you - the maths you know you will need for your course.
There are a variety of resources - self study guides; test yourself diagnostics and exercises; video tutorials; iPod and 3G mobile phone downloads; and case studies. Resources are available on-line, and may be printed or downloaded.
