Math Assistance Center
COVID - 19 Updates
If you need to contact your TA or you would like assistance with your coursework, please use the following list to contact TA’s who can help you. Simply email a TA and inquire if they will have time during their office hours to help you. The TA should respond and, if they are able to accommodate you, will invite you to their office hours.
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.

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.
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.
If you have any questions regarding the lab, please contact graduate student operator Ahmed Zytoon (AMZ56@pitt.edu)
