Help Room

The Math Department operates several Help Rooms to provide assistance to students in first-year courses. Students are invited to drop by the Help Rooms whenever they are open. No appointment is necessary.

Who Staffs the Help Rooms?

All teachers and lab assistants in MATH 105L/106L Laboratory Calculus & Functions I and II, MATH 111L/112L Laboratory Calculus I and II, and MATH 122L Introductory Calculus II with Applications participate in the "L" Help Room. A pdf of lab assistants can be found below under Attachments. 

The MATH 202/212 Help Room and MATH 221/218 Help Room are staffed by tutors hired by the Math Department.

Want to Work as a Math Tutor?

If you would like to receive email notification when the Math Department begins organizing MATH 202/212 and MATH 221/218 Help Room schedules, please fill out out the Contact List Form. You only need to fill out the form once, unless your information changes. We strongly recommended this for all students with interest in Help Room positions.

If you would like to be considered for a position in one or more of the Help Rooms, specifically for the coming term, please fill out the Application Form. You are required to fill out a new application each semester because it includes questions about scheduling preferences.

ARC Resources

Some terms, the Academic Resource Center hosts directed study groups for certain math courses.  Here is the page listing those schedules.

Private "peer tutors" are also available in some terms for some math courses.  Here is the page for more information.  Note, these tutors are available first-come-first-serve.

Operational Policies

  • The Fire Marshal limit on attendance in Classroom 132 is 20. It is rare to have that many students in the room at once, but if attendance is at that level when you arrive, you might have to wait. Help Room staffers are asked to make sure that the number of people in the room stays within the required limits. When the Help Room is that busy, we ask that students stay only if they have immediate questions. If you are working on your homework and concerned that you might have a question later, please let students with more immediate questions have access to the room first.
  • Please do not take chairs from nearby rooms. There should already be sufficient seating in the Help Room, which meets the Fire Marshal limit.

Summer Terms Tutoring Schedule

The summer term Help Room is available to students in all summer math courses. The Help Room is open for several hours a day, Monday through Friday, and is staffed by course assistants. Please check the complete Summer Help Room schedules, below, for specific hours and dates of operation. Be sure to check the dates to confirm that these pages have been updated for the current summer!
