The School of Mathematics, Statistics and Physics works with schools and businesses across the UK to provide specialist support, services and resources. 

We work hard to promote the study of mathematics, statistics and physics at A Level and beyond. Each year, we run several events for secondary school students, and prepare special mathematics challenge questions for teachers. You can find out more on our page about Outreach for Schools

Through Newcastle University's Industrial Statistics Research Unit (ISRU), we offer a diverse range services for business; providing skills that bridge the gap between applied target-driven performance and sound academic practice. Many well-known service, manufacturing and healthcare organisations have improved business performance through ISRU services.

Our e-learning unit specialises in researching, developing and implementing digital materials for e-learning and e-assessment in mathematics, statistics and numeracy. Most notably, the unit developed the Numbas e-assessment system which is widely used by the higher-education community.
