SLC Study Groups - Description

Study Groups meet 2 hours a day, twice each week. In groups, a study group leader coaches the group by reviewing course material, answering questions, working examples to illustrate course concepts, providing worksheets for students to work on together, and helping students develop effective study strategies.

How to Join:

  • As long as you attend the group you were assigned to, you are guaranteed to be in a study group.
  • If you want to join a study group that you were not placed in or want to switch to a different study group, just attend any study group below that is not marked as Full.  Be sure to sign the attendance sheet when you attend and you should be added to the study group. As long as the group does not exceed the capacity of the room, you will be allowed to join.

Weekly Worksheets

Each week, the SLC will make a Weekly Worksheet of Bio 1A questions available in the Science Drop-in Tutoring Area. Anyone can pick up a copy and can work on it at the Biology table or can take it home. Solutions are not posted, but students can speak with one of the tutors to check their answers and ask any other questions they have. 

The last Weekly Worksheets for the semester has been made available. 
(Past weekly worksheets can also be picked up in the Drop-in Tutoring Area while copies last.)
