Help Centres

The School of Mathematical and Computational Sciences has comprehensive help centre offerings covering both principal topic areas for the first two years of study.

Mathematical Sciences

Do you:

  • struggle with Math?
  • need more explanation or extra help on a topic covered in class?
  • need a hint for that homework problem you just can't seem to solve?
  • have a nagging desire to know what a Dedekind cut is?
  • have trouble doing the part of your math assignment that requires you to use a computer (such as Maple or Minitab)?
  • have a scary obsession with math and want to be immersed in it as much as possible?

If you answered "YES!!" to any of these questions, you're not alone! Come and visit us at the SMCS Help Centre where you will find friendly, experienced staff and students who are there to help you.

For your convenience, we are centrally located on campus and operate during times which should minimize conflict with your classes! Don't let math be the cause of your hair loss! Drop by and see us!! Your brain will thank you and your hair will grow back!

Computational Sciences

Do you:

  • have trouble understanding Computer Science concepts?
  • need alternate explanations or other help on a topic covered in class?
  • need some direction on an assignment problem you just can't seem to solve?
  • have a nagging desire to know what recursion is really all about?
  • have trouble doing the part of your computer science assignment that requires you to use math?
  • have a weird penchant for programming and want to eat, sleep and breathe it?

If you answered "YES!!" to any (or many!) of these questions, you're not alone! Come and visit us at the Computer Sciences Help Centre where you will find friendly, experienced staff and students (along with a computer or two!) who are there to help you.

For your convenience, we are centrally located on campus and operate during times which are not likely to conflict with your classes!  We’re the Bobby McFerrin of computing – don’t worry, be happy!  Don't suffer sleepless nights alone in front of a glowing screen! Drop by and see us!! Your brain will thank you and your eyes won’t be so bloodshot!
