Location: B154

About: Math and Statistics Tutoring PDF

The Math & Stats Activity Centre (MSAC) is a place where students can gather to work on, discuss, and obtain assistance with problems in Mathematics and Statistics. There are books, computers, and other tools for exploration, including reference books and texts.

The MSAC operates on a drop-in basis and is open to all Langara students but with first priority given to students actually enrolled in Langara MATH or STAT courses. When the MSAC is open, students are welcome to work there and seek advice as needed.

Peer Tutors are upper level students who are most likely to be helpful with lower level courses and are not expected to help with courses above MATH 1170. Feel free to ask about their comfort level with higher level courses.

Faculty Tutors are current Langara instructors. Each instructor has certain areas of expertise -- check to see who is able to help with statistics or business math.

M1100/1101 Testing on the MSAC schedule indicates times that are reserved for students in MATH 1100 and MATH 1101.

Getting help in the MSAC does not mean getting your homework done by a tutor. When you meet with a tutor in the MSAC, you should come prepared with your class notes. If you have missed a class, it is your responsibility to get the notes from a fellow student, and/or to meet with your instructor - the MSAC instructors cannot re-create a missed lecture for you.

If you are having trouble with a particular problem, please bring along your unsuccessful attempts so the MSAC tutor can help you to see where your difficulties are and can assist you to move towards a solution and towards a better understanding of the mathematical or statistical concepts involved.

Courses: All MATH tutors can help with MATH 1150, MATH 1152, MATH 1170, MATH 1171, MATH 1173, MATH 1174, and MATH 1175. Some MATH tutors can help with higher level courses.
