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:
Our School is now adding end of term reviews for some first year courses. Several PhD members of our School will be hosting course material reviews a few days before the final exam. They will notify students via cuLearn if the reviews will be provided for courses that you are enrolled in. More courses will be added in future if the School finds that they are being taken advantage of and assisting our students with the final exams. This is another part of our Learning Assistance Program aimed at helping all of our students get to the next level.
Learning Assistance Coordinator – Math & Stats have created a new position. The Learning Assistance Coordinator is a pilot project position created to further offer assistance to our students, teaching assistants, faculty, and our School as a whole. This position will focus on working in our Math 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 LAC if you have any questions, need some assistance with your course material, or preparing for tests and exams. firstname.lastname@example.org
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 email@example.com
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 Term and summer exam periods
At the Math Tutorial Centre (MTC), 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.
Winter 2018 sessions
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
