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.

Frequently Asked Questions

HOW DO I FIND THE ONLINE WORKSHOP?

During remote learning, the workshops will be offered online using either Zoom or BbCollaborate Ultra. Some workshops may be in a separate Canvas container from your course; check your course Canvas container for more information about how to access your workshop, as well as the workshop schedule.

HOW DO I SUBMIT MY ASSIGNMENTS, QUIZZES, EXAMS?

Depending on your course, you may need to submit assignments, quizzes, exams, and other course work. Most of this will be done using Crowdmark, especially during periods of remote learning. Occasionally, you will submit this work directly within Canvas. See your course Canvas container for more information about the assessments you will be given throughout the semester, and how to submit them for marks.

HOW DO I GET BACK MY ASSIGNMENTS, QUIZZES, EXAMS?

Your graded work is typically returned within a week of the submission date. Work submitted through Crowdmark will be returned to you in Crowdmark as well. A record of all of your work is kept in Crowdmark for as long as you use it in your courses.

WHAT SHOULD I DO IF MY MARK IS RECORDED INCORRECTLY?

Visit the workshop for your course and talk to a TA or the Workshop Coordinator. If your course doesn't have a workshop in a given semester, then talk to your instructor.

HOW DO I REQUEST A GRADE APPEAL?

Make sure that you have reviewed the posted solutions (if any) and you are certain that there was a mistake in the grading. Then visit a TA in the workshop during operating hours to discuss your solution and to request a grading appeal. The TA will initiate a grade appeal form, and then you will receive an email allowing you to complete your side of the form before it is submitted to your instructor for review.

Be aware that your entire assessment may be scrutinized, and so the result of a grade appeal is that your mark could go up, go down, or remain the same.
