Math Help Centre FAQs

Can I make an appointment with a Math tutor?

Yes, the math labs and help centres offer online appointments through TEAMS as well as a drop-in service on a first-come, first-served basis.

Can I get help with other subjects other than Math and Stats?

Math help centres and labs are for students currently in Math or Stats courses or completing the math components of trades or nursing programs.  We can sometimes help with math questions related to other Camosun courses.

We also have help centres specific to English, writing, and science.

Can I use a computer?

The Math Lab (Ewing 224), Math Help Centre (Ewing 342) and Academic Upgrading Help Centre (CBA 109) have some computers available for the students. Maple software is available on computers in Ewing 224, as well as in the general purpose computer labs.
