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.

O'Hara Student Center
Room 215
4024 O'Hara Street


Fall/Spring Term Hours

Dietrich School Scientific Computing Lab

Some mathematics courses include computer assignments using Loc CAPA, Mathematica, Maple or Matlab software. Expert help is available with this software on a walk-in basis in the Posvar Computer Lab.


Posvar Hall
Room 1200A
230 S Bouquet St.


Because classes are held regularly in the Posvar Computer Lab, students should consult the schedule for hours when walk-in help is available.
