Tuakana Maths

We welcome you to our Tuākana Maths programme. Come along to our dedicated spaces to hang out, work hard, find help and challenge yourself.

We understand that many of our rst year students are taking one or two Maths courses that are required as part of another programme of study, and that it’s easy to feel disconnected from the subject. But it doesn't have to feel like that. Even if you are taking just one Maths course - we welcome you to our collaborative network - one that is focused on people, culture and learning.

The Tuākana maths programme includes:

Tuākana room

The Tuākana room is a study space that you can access anytime you like. You can study, work on assignments or just hang out.  It is here you will find our Tuākana library with text books available for most of the maths courses for your use, there are kitchen facilities including a microwave and electric  jug, and you will meet other students in your courses who are using the room too.
