The School of Mathematics and Statistics recognizes that transitioning from high school to university can be quite a leap.  Even students with high academic achievement in high school may find the programs at university immensely challenging.  In order to support students in achieving their goals and succeeding academically, we have implemented the following resources:

Learning Assistance Coordinators – The Learning Assistance Coordinator positions were created to further offer assistance to our students, teaching assistants, faculty, and our School as a whole. These positions will focus on working in our Math and Stats Tutorial Centre to assist our honours and general level students, continue to coordinate the MS-LAP project, provide training workshops and assign duties for teaching assistants, mentor our students, provide problem solving workshops, and coordinate Math Matters programs. Please feel free to contact our LACs if you have any questions, need some assistance with your course material, or preparing for tests and exams. for Mathematics inquiries and for Statistics.

Are you a first year Math Honours student? Start your degree off on the right foot by attending Math Matters for Math Honours students. During the one-week long program, you will review and learn the skills and concepts you need to be successful in your program. To learn about this program contact the Science Student Success Centre, or

Mathematics and Statistics Learning Assistance Program (MS-LAP) utilizes new technologies to offer first year students additional resources and study aides developed by trained program facilitators and our program coordinator.

CLOSED reading week fall, winter and summer term.

At the Math Tutorial Centre (MTC), Our Learning Assistance Coordinators and Teaching Assistants are available to help Monday through Friday. They are well qualified to answer questions, and are there to help.

If further assistance is required, highly qualified tutors are available for one-on-one tutoring sessions. They can provide individual support for you at your convenience. 

Peer Assisted Study Sessions (PASS) is now supporting two mathematics courses. Join your classmates in a relaxed and informal study session! Visit their website to learn more about PASS. Courses supported by this program are Math 1004 and Math 1007.

Science Student Success Centre

The SSSC was created specifically to address the needs of students in the Faculty of Science. The Faculty of Science Student Resources offer one-on-one mentoring sessions, information sessions on career and research exploration, workshops on lab reports and exam preparation, resources for academic success, and much more!

Come and see us in the Mathematics and Statistics main office, 4302 Herzberg Laboratories for information on any of these learning assistance resources. Please send your feedback on our learning assistance programs to
