Math Help Centre
The Department of Geography & Planning runs a Math Help Centre for students taking undergraduate courses offered by the department.
Drop-in work space with TAs
TA’s will be available to help refresh and explain math concepts and techniques that may come up in lectures, readings or assignments. This includes working with formulas, graphing data, completing calculations, and so forth. It does not matter how basic your questions are! No appointment is required, just drop by. There is table and couch seating available in the room, allowing students to get math help as they work through assignments.
Location: The Math Help Centre will be run in the Geography Lounge, located across from the elevators on 5th floor Sid Smith. It is a nice open room with big windows. The TA’s will be working with students around the tables in the back corner. If you drop by and the TA is working with another student, please let them know you also have a question.
