Today's Drop-in Tutoring Hours
Please note: We will be closed on Sunday, October 9 and Monday, October 10 (Thanksgiving Day). As well, our schedule will be reduced during November Reading Week (November 5-12).
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.
Hours of operation: Our hours of operation for the week of September 6-9 will be 11am-5pm. Please check back for our regular hours of operation (after September 9).
Online Math Readiness Course: See below for directions on how to access the online Math Readiness course.
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:
- functions and graphs
- trigonometry, and
- exponential and logarithmic functions
<!-- 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.-->
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.
If you are interested in attending an evening or weekend face-to-face version of the Math Readiness Course, please email Holly at holly.fraser "at" usask.ca, with "math readiness evening course" in your message.
Online Math Readiness
Online Math Readiness is a self-directed online resource containing course materials and interactive exercises. The online course is available now, however, some technical problems remain unresolved. The course notes, questions and answers are available as pdfs, but we haven't been able to make the online quizzes function properly, yet. Our apologies for that.
The online Math Readiness course is available to most people who have University of Saskatchewan NSIDs. If you would like to be added to the online Math Readiness Course, please email holly.fraser "at" usask.ca with "online math readiness" in the subject line, and in your message, please include your NSID.
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 1 of Regular Session 2016 (i.e. September-December). As well, Math 102 will be offered during Term 2 of Regular Session 2016-17 as an online course. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
