What are the hours for the Math-Help Centres?

Can I make an appointment for a Math Help Centre?

All of the math labs and math help centres are drop-in only and operate on a first-come, first-served basis.

Can I get help with other subjects other than MATH and STATS?

The help centres and labs are primarily intended for you if you are currently enrolled in MATH or STAT courses at Camosun or completing the math components of trades or nursing programs, though we can sometimes help with math questions related to other Camosun courses. We also have help centres specific to English, writing, and science help centres.

Can I use a computer?

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