Math Workshops and Open Labs

Tools, support, and resources on a drop-in basis.

Workshops and Open Labs are a casual way to get the extra support you need, when you need it. Starting in the second week of classes, you can drop in to discuss course material with instructors, coordinators, and teaching assistants, or get help with assignments, studying, and exam prep.
