The Mathematics and Statistics Workshop offers assistance to students in introductory level courses that have a quantitative component.

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, Multivariable Calculus, Great Ideas in Math, Working with Data, Probability, Mathematical Statistics, Econometrics, 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.
  • Individual Tutorials The MSW provides one-on-one tutoring for students in mathematics, statistics, and QF-courses. Instructors may refer students or students may seek assistance on their own.
  • Support with Technology The MSW provides tutorial sessions in the use of graphing calculators; software programs such as MATLAB, Minitab, Maple, SPSS, and Excel; in typesetting mathematical documents using LaΤeχ; and programming in introductory DCS courses.
