Drop-in Help

Do you need some help with a tricky homework problem?  Are you looking for some additional explanation about material covered in your mathematics course?  We are here to help!

Students having difficulties in any of our 100- or 200-level courses can drop in to CAB 528 to obtain one-on-one help from graduate students.

Drop-in help is available free of charge.

Drop-in help for the Fall 2018 semester is available as follows:

Courses Days Times
Math
Monday to Friday

9:00am to 3:00pm
Stats Tuesday to Thursday
12:00pm to 3:00pm
 

During peak periods, graduate students will be able to devote at most a few minutes to any one student seeking help.  Here are a few tips on getting the most out of your visit:

  • Be specific about the problem for which you are seeking help.
  • Give the person helping you some time to read the problem.
  • Be prepared to show the work that you have done so far, and try to articulate where you are getting stuck or what you do not understand about the problem.
  • Do not expect the person helping you to simply show you how to do the problem; instead, be open to try the options that the person helping you suggests.
