  3. 3. Why Maths Caf´e? I found the Maths Caf´e very helpful. It was very easy to find. Both the time and place were convenient for me. If it wasn’t for the Maths Caf´e I would not have managed to get onto the second year of my course. Maths Caf´e is a good facility ... really helpful ... very useful. I have personally found the Maths Caf´e extremely helpful, especially during the first few months of my course this year. I would like to thank those people who helped me to understand certain topics. I think the Maths Caf´e is a valuable resource to students. It’s helpful when there’s staff who are easily approachable and good at explaining things. University of Portsmouth Maths Caf´e Plans for 2014/15 June 4, 2014 3 / 22
