Skills in Mathematics and Statistics in Geography and tackling transition

This report is one of a series of outputs produced by the Higher Education Academy STEM project: Skills in Mathematics and Statistics in the disciplines and tackling transition.


Report Cover

The project seeks to provide a strong evidence base to inform dialogue between the pre-university and higher education sectors about the need for students to develop and apply mathematical and statistical skills within a range of discipline areas within higher education. Throughout, a particular emphasis is placed on the transition into university study.

For this report, the focus is the Geography discipline. The report examines a wide range of factors including the mathematical and statistical skills requirements within the discipline, key sector requirements and staff and student expectations.

Evidence collected from a literature review, surveys, interviews and a discussion event is presented and used to inform findings and recommendations.
