Drop-in help is free of charge!
 For the Winter 2022 term we will be offering drop-in help both in-person and online during the following days/time: (Only online help will be available for the first few weeks of the term, in-person help will commence once we are allowed to return to campus)

Mathematics Monday to Friday 9:00AM - 3:00PM
Statistics Tuesday to Thursday 9:00AM - 3:00PM

Drop-in help begins on Monday January 10 and finishes on the last day of classes, Friday April 8.

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.
  • If you have not yet attempted the problem then your TA will likely just ensure that you understand what is being asked.
