Resources for extra help
Don't stay confused. There are several resources available when you want some help outside of lecture and discussion:
Most of this information was taken from the Getting help in your math class page.
- Review Workshops: The math tutorial program offers workshops at the beginning of each semester to review the material that you are expected to know. The link provides the schedule, and they all happen from Tuesday, Sep. 6 - Thursday, Sep. 8.
- Mathematics Tutorial Program: Free small group tutoring is offered to students who are in danger of getting a D or F, for students who have not had a math course in several years, or for students who are retaking the course. A significant time commitment is required. Any student can apply to the program, but after the first two weeks of the semester, a referral from an instructor is required. Students may apply in room 320 Van Vleck.
- Math Lab: a free, drop-in tutorial program (starting Sep. 14) in B227 Van Vleck. Tutoring is available Monday through Thursday from 3:30-8:30PM and Sunday 3:30-6:50PM.
- Tutoring in University Residence Halls: free, drop-in math tutoring is available every evening Sunday-Thursday at various residence halls.
- GUTS: Greater University Tutoring Service offers free small group, individual, and drop-in tutoring at various locations around campus. It is staffed mostly by student volunteers. Stop by their office (333 East Campus Mall, Rm. 4413) to sign up for a tutor or try drop-in tutoring.
- Private Tutors: A list of tutors is available at the link or from the receptionist on the second floor of Van Vleck.
Please review 1.1 (definite and indefinite integrals) before the class starts.
