In-person help

Starting February 14, in person help will be offered in Murray Library room 144. The following guidelines apply:

  • Only 4 students in the room at a time
  • Maximum length of stay is 30 minutes
  • Each student will sit at their own table
  • No eating in the room
  • Masks must be worn
  • Tutors will spend their time evenly among the students in the room (not 30 minutes with each)

*Please note these rules are subject to change and some can be adapted depending on how many students are in the room or waiting to enter.

Room schedule

This is a big change and there may be hiccups. We hope that you bear with us as we resume offering more drop-in hours.

Currently no drop-in hours are available on weekends, but online appointment times are offered.

Please email Holly Fraser at if the drop-in hours and online appointment times are incompatible with your schedule.

About Math and Stats Help

Math and stats help focus on providing help for current USask students taking first-year and introductory courses, but can help you with a range of mathematical and statistical topics. 

Unfortunately, we are not able 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 library guide to be helpful.

Math and Stats Help Resources

The Math and Stats Help Guide provides resources recommended by the math and stats help coordinator.

The Department of Mathematics and Statistics has developed an on-line Mathematics Placement Test (MPT)  for new university students. Students who are registered in most 100 level Math courses are required to write the MPT before they are allowed to register for calculus.

Topics covered on the MPT are: 

  • Arithmetic skills
  • Basic algebra and functions
  • Geometry and trigonometry
  • Exponential and logarithmic functions

For practice questions that will prepare you to take the MPT, use the Sample Math Placement Test from the Department of Mathematics and Statistics.

If you have questions about the MPT, contact Amos Lee in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics. 

Looking for help with the statistical package R? The library has video tutorials available at LinkedIn Learning (NSID authentication required). Some examples to search for are

  • Code Clinic RExplore solutions to common R programming challenges, and then compare the results with other programming languages in the Code Clinic series.
  • Up and Running with RIntroduces the R statistical processing language, including how to install R, read data from SPSS and spreadsheets, analyze data, and create charts and plots.
  • R Statistics Essential TrainingUse R to model statistical relationships using its graphs, calculations, tests, and other analysis tools.
