mathAssist is a drop-in space for Mathematics and Statistics students to develop their mathematical understanding with support from Learning Assistants (formerly known as tutor-on-duty). There is a particular emphasis on remedying gaps in students background or assumed knowledge.

While students are encouraged to seek help with concepts they are having trouble with, mathAssist is not a place to request answers or solutions. Rather, our aim is to aid students in developing critical thinking skills to become better mathematical learners and practitioners and to make sure that students have the assumed knowledge they require for the subjects they are taking.

Your Learning Assistants can help with:

  • Problem solving skills
  • Critical thinking skills
  • Studying techniques
  • Fostering collaboration opportunities
  • Background knowledge
  • Obtaining additional study resources

When and Where: In semester 2 2023, mathAssist runs 12pm - 2pm every weekday (Monday - Friday) during semester, starting in week 2 and excluding the mid-semester break. It is held in person in the mathAssist room, ground floor, Peter Hall building.
