What is the Math and Science Support (MASS) Center?

The MASS Center offers virtual study tables for many undergraduate mathematics courses, in addition to several science courses that require strong mathematical competency across the university. Study tables provide a collaborative learning space so that students can learn from their peers who have excelled (the table leader) as well as their fellow class members attending the study table. Tutors at MASS study tables will not directly aid with graded homework or course assignments, nor do they "solve" the problems for students. Rather, MASS Center tutors will work with you to determine how to succeed in your class and with a given content question.

What services does the MASS Center provide?

  1. Drop-in tutoring: Students will be able to work collaboratively with one another under the guidance of a trained tutor who has previously taken and been successful with the course. No appointment is necessary for these tutoring sessions. More information about the MASS Center and the schedule for when the virtual study table for your course is offered are available on the MASS Center website. Note: Please check the schedule often, as changes may occur the during the semester!

How do I join a virtual study table?

Instructions for Using the MASS Center Virtual Study Tables: The study table schedule is available on the MASS website. To join a study table, students should enter the MASS Center WebEx Waiting Room. In the waiting room, a Learning Commons "virtual receptionist" will connect students to the appropriate MASS Tutor via a Microsoft Teams link when it is time for the study table to begin. Please note that students must download the Microsoft Teams app prior to joining a MASS study table. For instructions on how to access the MASS Center virtual study tables, please view this instructional video.
