What is the MLC?

Concept The Math Learning Centre (or MLC for short) is a space for undergraduate students to study math together, with support from tutors, who are graduate and undergraduate 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 to aid students in becoming better learners and to develop critical thinking in a mathematical setting.

Seating You can come in, sit at any table and work. Tables will sometimes be marked with a course number to help students from large first-year courses find each other and work together.

Help Simply place the blue Help card into the table stand and a TA should come to you soon. You can continue working while waiting for the TA. If you have a short question or you just require a hint or an idea to solve your problem, you can line up in front of the quick help desk.

Quiz If you take one of large multi-sectional first-year Math courses, for some courses, you may get back your marked quiz in the MLC. The quiz return station is located in LSK302. Please have your student ID ready, and recall your course and section number.


Where can I sit in the MLC?

Essentially, you can sit at any table in LSK 301 or 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.

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.

Where can I provide comments or file complaints?

If you have any questions, suggestions, complaints, concerns or other comments about the MLC, we'd love to hear from you! Please e-mail MLC head Kateryna Melnykova at melnykova@math.ubc.ca.
