Mathematics

There is safety in numbers and math counts!

Extra Help

General Extra Help sessions are run by the math department every Wednesday, from 2:45 to 3:45 p.m. in Room 209. Math teachers will assist with these sessions on a rotating schedule. The structure of these sessions is that students are working individually or in small groups on homework, test correction and/or test preparation while the teacher circulates the room answering questions. Some students use this time simply as a place to do homework, while others use it to get help on specific topics where they are experiencing difficulty. The amount of individual attention received by the student will vary depending on the number of students who attend each week. It is the student’s responsibility to raise his/her hand if he/she needs assistance from the teacher.
