Math Workshops

Help - My Math Classes Are Online Workshop Series

The Tutoring & Learning Center is offering a series of engaging, interactive, and process-focused math workshops in which students learn and apply strategies designed to help them feel more confident about learning math online successfully. Led by the Math Learning Specialist, the emphasis is on techniques for purposeful and efficient learning. Students apply the strategies to their own course materials whenever possible during the workshops and, ideally, make a one-on-one follow-up appointment which builds upon what they learned in the workshop. 

Please note: workshops will not be rescheduled in the event of a university closure during a scheduled workshop session.
