Help with math and stats classes

“Do not worry about your difficulties in mathematics; I can assure you that mine are still greater.”  Albert Einstein, in a letter to a junior high school student, 1943.

If you are struggling in any of your math courses do not let this necessarily discourage you from being a math major. There are several ways to get help with your coursework on campus, all of which are free.

Attend Office Hours:

Take advantage of any office hours that your professor or TF offers. There you can not only obtain direct help, but you can also potentially meet other students in your class whom you maybe be able to form study groups with, so you can support each other throughout the semester and in your future studies.

Visit the Tutoring Room:

The tutoring room is a room in the basement of the math department that is staffed by graduate students. You are welcome to work quietly in the room individually or in groups, and if you have any questions at any point you can ask whoever is on duty as the tutor for help. See the link for the schedule and other details.

Get Peer Tutoring through the Educational Resource Center:

Through the Educational Resource Center (ERC) you can set up individual meetings with other BU undergrads who have successfully completed the math course you are currently taking. Typically tutoring can be obtained for MA113, MA115, MA116, MA121, MA123, MA124, MA213, MA214, MA225, and MA226. Contact them to inquire about other courses.

West Campus Math Tutoring:

West Campus Math Tutoring is run by Prof Wayne Snyder, who is the faculty in residence at Rich Hall in West Campus. The Math Tutoring Hours are in the Rich Hall Cinema Room on Tuesdays from 7:30-10:30pm. Anyone is welcome to stop by – no appointment needed.
