Below is a list of services for students.
- Drop-in Hours — Students are welcome to drop in, without an appointment, to review mathematics topics as needed or to use the computer resources.
- Attached Tutors for Select Classes — In addition to the availability of drop-in hours, an attached tutor is assigned to each section of those courses which usually have a high demand for tutoring, such as: Calculus I, Calculus II, Linear Algebra, Great Ideas in Math, Working with Data, Probability, Mathematical Statistics, Psych Stats, Econ Stats, Neuro Stats, Biostatistics, and many introductory DCS courses. In addition to working in the drop-in center, attached tutors (usually) attend class once per week, alongside enrolled students. Students may schedule appointments, individually or with a group of friends, to meet with the attached tutor outside of class. Details on how to make an appointment are provided in class. Students in courses with an attached tutor are welcome to utilize all services of the MSW and are not limited to meeting with their attached tutor.
