Math Assistance Center


The Math Assistance Center (MAC) provides a walk-in service; no appointments are scheduled or needed. If there is a particular teaching assistant you prefer to work with, their hours are listed in the schedules below. However, all graduate teaching assistants present at any time have the capacity to aid in any undergraduate mathematics course. Undergraduate teaching assistants are there to provide assistance in sub-calculus classes.


The MAC has moved! It is now located in the O'Hara Student Center.
