Title of study: An exploration of strategies to support non-specialist Mathematics and Statistics Learners in Higher Education in Mauritius.
This doctorate intends to develop a few themes for exploration by looking at some major research questions. Past experiences (joy, excitement, apprehension, fear, anxiety) and personal expectations students have, that will help the researcher enhance his teaching skills and the students’ learning experience, in mathematics and statistics. Furthermore, the researcher is looking at appropriate actions he should undertake to assist non-specialist students in studying and enjoying mathematics/statistics modules.
