Study Groups

The Study Group serves as a collaborative space for students to work together on worksheets and discuss material in small inclusive group environment. The Study Group Leader facilitates these discussions as well as summarizes key concepts, reviews for the lecture exams, and addresses individual questions during office hours. 

Study Group attendance is flexible and allows students to attend at any point during the semester. Of course, more is gained from consistent attendance! Just attend any session and add your name and SID to the sign-in sheet. Study Groups begin the 3rd week of instruction and continue until the end of instruction. Most room locations are located in Cesar Chavez.

Exam Reviews

Announcements will be made in lecture when we plan to offer a review. Typically the exam review is given the weekend before a lecture midterm for any course that we support with a Study Group. The review is open to all students in the course; all students who do not attend the Study Group are encouraged to attend. See the table below for the updates on room locations and times.
 
The reviewer summarizes the important topics and provides a worksheet of problems or a practice exam for students to self-assess their comprehension of the course material and problem solving skills.

Drop-In

Drop-In Tutoring is a collaborative space designed to encourage students to work with tutors or each other on problem sets, concepts, theory, or anything else related to the material in their courses. The tutors may provide a conceptual framework on a given concept or create parallel problems to assess and develop content mastery. Typically there are 10 to 15 tutors available every hour to work with students in small groups or individually. 

Drop-In Tutoring is free for all students and starts the 3rd week of instruction and continues until the end of instruction. Students should sign in at the Math/Stat Drop-In computer in the Cesar Chavez Atrium by room 103. Drop-In Tutoring is open Mon-Thu 10-4.
