About the Math Support Center - MSC

MSC provides informal tutoring support on drop-in basis primarily to students taking common core or service mathematics courses, especially courses using the WeBWorK or Classviva online homework systems.

WeBWorK is an online homework delivery system which allows students to complete their homework over the web, and receive instantaneous feedback as to the correctness of their responses. Moreover WeBWorK allows instructors a great deal of flexibility to specify and present exercises.

Classviva offers online solution guidance for a large number of problems in both single and multi-variable calculus, as well as linear algebra. With only a few clicks, students can obtain online help and expert assistance.

MSC Location: Room 3011-3013 (Lift 3 or Lift 2).

During the operating hours of the MSC, you can get some help with your mathematical problems from the MSC tutors on duty in the MSC. However, plan early for your MSC visits to avoid peak periods which often occur near the due days of WeBWorK homework.
