Drop-In Help

Have a math question? Need help with that stats formula? Students can obtain assistance understanding concepts from a variety of areas in mathematics – fundamentals, algebra, calculus, proofs, linear algebra, financial math, probability and statistics, etc.

Our drop-in sessions provide an informal peer-to-peer learning environment.

Additional resources and reference material can also be found on the Mathematics and Statistics Learning Support site in MyLearningSpace - Laurier students can log in to MyLS, and then self-register themselves to the appropriate campus-specific site.

Waterloo Campus

Mathematics and Statistics Learning Support (MaSt) operates a traditional drop-in help centre, in 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, ST230, ST231, ST259/260.
  • Introductory statistics courses offered by any academic department: BU/EC255, EC245, EC285, PS295/296, GG254/258, PO218, SY382, CC327, etc.
