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.

For the Fall 2017 term, we are open from September xxth, through December xxth (we are closed on statutory holidays and for the Reading Week Break). 

Drop-in help is available as follows:

Courses Days Times
There is no drop-in help for Spring or Summer Terms


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.
