A case study in the e-assessment of statistics for non-specialists (2020)
Journal Article
Weir, I. S., Gwynllyw, D. R., & Henderson, K. L. (in press). A case study in the e-assessment of statistics for non-specialists. Journal of University Teaching and Learning Practice,

The need to be able to choose, perform and interpret the results from appropriate statistical tests is ubiquitous in many STEM disciplines and beyond. In this case study, we illustrate a learning and assessment approach that has been used successfull... Read More about A case study in the e-assessment of statistics for non-specialists.

Case study using Python in the teaching of numerical analysis (2020)
Journal Article
Gwynllyw, D. R., Henderson, K. L., Van lent, J., & Guillot, E. G. (2020). Case study using Python in the teaching of numerical analysis. MSOR Connections, 18(2), 25-32. https://doi.org/10.21100/msor.v18i2.1100

In this case study we describe the rationale, methodology and results of teaching Python as part of a third year optional Numerical Analysis module taken by undergraduate BSc Mathematics students at the University of the West of England, Bristol. In... Read More about Case study using Python in the teaching of numerical analysis.

Using e-assessment to address mathematical misconceptions in engineering students (2020)
Journal Article
Sikurajapathi, I., Henderson, K., & Gwynllyw, R. (2020). Using e-assessment to address mathematical misconceptions in engineering students. International Journal of Information and Education Technology, 10(5), 356-361. https://doi.org/10.18178/ijiet.2020.10.5.1389

Students, when answering a mathematical question, may make a mistake in their answer for a variety of reasons. For example, not reading the question properly, making a mistake due to carelessness or due to a mathematical misconception. It is this l...

Diagnostic tool and online resource providing mathematics support for non-specialists (2019)
Conference Proceeding
Henderson, K., Gwynllyw, R., Walsh, E., Haslam, O., O'Flynn, P., Elvidge, D., & Golden, K. (2019). Diagnostic tool and online resource providing mathematics support for non-specialists. In ICERI2019 Proceedings, (7756-7764). https://doi.org/10.21125/iceri.2019

We report on the development of a diagnostic tool to provide support for non-mathematics students. This tool has been designed to aid the transition onto university courses where mathematics is required during the course, but is not a pre-requisite....
