Math Services


Math is NOT a spectator sport.

To fully understand and appreciate math, one must be involved and practice on a regular basis. Math Services helps students become more confident and independent learners of mathematics through a variety of avenues.

Math Lab

The math lab is a friendly environment where you can study at your own pace. The drop-in lab is staffed by peer tutors who will offer guidance and encouragement to help you.  The tutors will not do work for you, instead they will help you identify the available resources and ask you questions to help guide you through the learning process.  To get the most out of your visit, come prepared with specific questions. 

Watch videos on how to use the math lab:

Appointments

Math Services offers one-on-one appointments for those students enrolled in CSC 131, 133, MAT 112, 115, 141-2, 151, 161, 162, 261, PHY 102, 201, 202, and STT 215. Please visit the appointments page to schedule your appointment.

For requests outside the group of supported courses, it may be possible to disseminate the name and contact information of the requestor via our bulletin board in the ULC office for a possible private tutoring scenario.**

For this request to occur, the requestor must:

  • Download and complete one of the private tutoring request post (PDF) slips
  • Bring this slip to the ULC office (DE 1056) between 8:00am-5:00pm for approval
  • All posts will be removed after 30 days

**This scenario would constitute a private contract. However, the ULC does not get involved in the terms of negotiation for such contracts, nor can private contract tutoring take place in the ULC.
