Course-Specific Support

The following course-specific supports are available on the Waterloo campus only.

Directed Homework Sessions

To get in the habit of doing your homework and to practice good learning strategies, come out to our weekly homework sessions, also called "Math SI" (Supplemental Instruction). A senior student will act as facilitator to provide structure to each 1.5-hour session, incorporating cumulative review, study techniques and time to work on current homework problems. It's a great way to keep up to date on course work – no cramming the night before your midterm!

Mock Tests/Exams

Take a practice run at writing your upcoming math midterm or exam. Get valuable feedback on your work, to help perform better when it counts. You will be able to pick up your graded mock exams before your actual test. No registration is required.

Please keep in mind: The mock tests have been created for students who want to simulate the test environment and challenge their studying to date. Students attending a mock exam session are expected to give it a serious attempt (i.e., no cheating!), stay for a minimum of one hour, and submit their papers for grading.

Since many students are not yet fully prepared when the mocks are scheduled, one 8.5" x 11" sheet of student-prepared study notes (both sides of page) will be allowed as a reference while completing the mock exams.

Note: All students in the course are welcome to attend the takeup/review session, regardless of whether they participated in writing the mock test or not.

Schedule for fall 2016 is to be announced.
