dc.description.abstract As part of the ‘Maths Positive’ initiative in Cork Institute of Technology (CIT), Maths modules have been identified which are impacting negatively on student success and progression. It was discovered that a particular first year business Mathematics module in CIT was causing difficulties to some of the students involved. When several years of exam results were analysed for this module, it was discovered that some of the students repeatedly fail and get caught in a ‘Maths Loop’. In order to break this cycle, an intervention workshop was developed and piloted which sought to challenge the students to examine their own behaviour and mindset around Mathematics study. The workshop combined Academic Success Coaching with practical study techniques specific to the module. The feedback from participants was positive and we plan to expand this interdisciplinary approach in addressing other similar modules. en
