The Math Learning Centre (MLC) is a space for undergraduate students to
study math together, with support from math tutors, who are graduate
students in the math department. Please note that while students are
encouraged to seek help with homework, the MLC is not a place to check
answers or receive solutions, rather, our aim is aid students in becoming
expert learners; to develop critical thinking and skills in a

Math 100/180 Final Exam Review Session:
We are offering free review sessions for the final exam of Math 100/180. Come to a session to get some more exposure to problems, some insight into exam-marking, learn some exam-taking strategies, and build your confidence! There will be two sessions offered (with differing content): here.
The schedule and number of TAs each hour is determined by last term's statistics and is subject to change depending on new statistics. Check back for updates, schedule changes, and announcements of review sessions.
Essentially, you can sit at any table in LSK 300, 301, and 302. If you are in a first-year course, we have specific tables marked for you so that you may meet peers and work together on the same material. Also note that LSK 300 is reserved for workshops at various times; refer to the schedule above for details.
How can I ask for help?
Simply place the "Help needed" placard into the table marker so that the MLC TAs can see you are asking for help, and someone will be with you as soon as possible. If you have a quick question, consider using the "Quick Help" (typically available at certain times, refer to the schedule above).
What is quick help?
Line up for quick help if you have a quick question. Each student receives 2 minutes of help, during which the TA will ask questions and give you a small hint or idea to help you figure out the problem on your own. Please move on when your turn is over to be courteous to the next person waiting for quick help!
Where can I provide comments or file complaints?
Any questions, comments, suggestions, complaints, concerns, and so forth may be directed toward the MLC Head (contact information below).
If you have any questions, suggestions, or other comments about the MLC, we'd love to hear from you! Please e-mail MLC head Vincent Chan at vchan(at)math.ubc.ca.
