Drop-In Help

Have a math question? Need help with that stats formula? Students can obtain assistance understanding concepts from a variety of quantitative-based subject areas – fundamentals, algebra, calculus, proofs, linear algebra, financial math, probability and statistics, economics, computer coding, etc.

Our drop-in sessions provide an informal peer-to-peer learning environment.  For fall term, we will be offering a combination of remote and on campus help sessions.

Please refer to our "Math & Stats Learning Support - Waterloo" and "Math & Stats Learning Support - Brantford" pages on MyLearningSpace to connect with us remotely!

If you do not see the relevant MaSt support page in your list of courses on MyLS, use the Advanced Search link and then change the Semester option box to "None" and click on the Search/microscope icon. If you still don't see the MaSt support page, then you can self-register for it: go back to your home page in MyLS and you should see a link for "Self Registration"; click this and then find the "Math & Stats Learning Support" site to enroll.

Mathematics and Statistics Learning Support (MaSt) offers traditional drop-in sessions, during which senior undergraduate students provide assistance to any student seeking help with:

  • General mathematics questions at an introductory level.
  • Any 100-level mathematics course.
  • Selected 200-level mathematics and statistics courses: MA201, MA205, MA222, MA238, MA250, MA287, ST230, ST231, ST259/260.
  • Introductory statistics courses offered by any academic department: BU/EC255, EC245, EC285, PS295/296, GG254/258, PO218, SY382, CC327, etc.
  • Introductory economics concepts and methods for EC120 and EC140
  • Coding support for CP104 and CP164 

No appointment needed; drop in to a session with a quick question in between your classes, or plan to stay for a while to work on assigned homework problems, individually or in small groups (using Zoom breakout rooms for the remote sessions).
