Services

Math/Stats Help staff can help you with a variety of mathematical or statistical topics but focus on first-year or introductory courses. Our service is primarily a drop-in service: students are welcome to drop in to work on homework and ask questions when needed. Our service is designed for current University of Saskatchewan students looking for help with U of S courses. We also offer workshops or review sessions on certain topics in mathematics. These are announced on this page and on PAWS.

Unfortunately, we do not have the resources to provide help with research-level statistics at this time. Please contact the Department of Mathematics and Statistics for advice on research-level statistics. You may also find the Numeric Data research guide helpful.

Math Readiness Course

The Math Readiness Course is a non-credit math review, for students who wish to refresh their high school math skills. The course consists of approximately 22 lessons on the following topic groups:

  • algebra
  • functions and graphs
  • geometry
  • trigonometry, and
  • exponential and logarithmic functions

Registration for the August 2015 course is now closed. Please contact Holly Fraser by email at holly.fraser@usask.ca or by phone at 306-966-2742 if you need further assistance.

The Math Readiness course is offered by the Department of Mathematics and Statistics and the Centre for Continuing and Distance Education, with assistance from staff from the Student Learning Services.

Course Offerings

In past years, the Math Readiness Course has been offered both as a summer course, and an evening course during regular session  in Term 1 (September-December) and Term 2 (January-April), provided a sufficient number of students register.

Summer course 2015

The summer course will run from August 17th to 28th, Monday-Friday 9 am to 4:30 pm. Fee: $300 (includes materials).  If you are looking for a credit course with similar content, please see below ("Credit Course Option").

Evening course

Evening course versions of Math Readiness have been offered in the past, usually during fall or winter sessions (T1 or T2) of Regular Session. Please note that Math Readiness is a cost-recovery course. In general, we usually need to have a minimum number of students registered in order to run the course. If you are interested in attending an evening version of the course, please contact Holly Fraser (306-966-2742 or holly.fraser@usask.ca).

Online Math Readiness

Online Math Readiness is a self-directed online resource containing course materials and interactive exercises. This online course is currently being updated and will be available soon, check this page for updates. For further information please contact Holly Fraser (306-966-2742 or holly.fraser@usask.ca).

Credit course option

For those who are interested in taking a credit course that reviews concepts from high school math, please check PAWS for "Math 102." Currently, Math 102 is on the slate of offerings for Term 2 of Spring and Summer Session 2015 (i.e. June 25-August 14) and during Quarter 4 (July 21-August 14). As well, Math 102 will be offered during Term 1 of Regular Session 2014-15. Taking Math 102 for credit (and passing) may clear deficiencies in prerequisites for certain 100-level courses in mathematics. Contact the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at 306-966-6081 or by email at math@math.usask.ca for more information. Please note that a credit course means that an official grade for the course will be issued on your transcript. We recommend that anyone considering taking Math 102 consult an academic advisor to determine how or if the course will align with your program requirements.

If you have written or will be writing the Math Placement test for your 100-level Mathematics course, you might be interested in trying out the online Sample Placement test, at the website of the Department of Mathematics and Statistics.
